Default I don't hear much clamoring for Lucian Butes home fights.

People complain about his opposition and rightfully so but why doesn't he get the same treatment as Andre Ward. People constantly discredit Andre Ward on this site for home fights when Lucian Bute hasn't fought outside of Montreal(excluding today, taking a home fight in his native country). At least Ward is fighting top competition.

A lot of Europeans on this site seem to think Lucian Bute is a top fighter and some even think he is the number 1 fighter(why I have no idea) in the division so why the double standard? Why aren't top fighters held to the same standards as other top fighters? I know why but it's pretty obvious what the answer is.

Lucian Bute drew a crowd of nearly 20,000 in Montreal for his fight with Bika and every one of his fights afterwards.

Andre Ward drew less than 4000 for his fight with Bika.

Do you understand what I'm saying?

Today was only Bute's second fight in his native country of Romania! Ward has had all his fights against decent opponents in his home state of California.

Bute lives in Canada and his home right now is Canada. It be like saying Floyd Mayweather is from Grand Rapids, MI but always fights in Vegas or Nonito Donaire is from the Phil.

yeah, I think its just because Canada is the biggest hotspot in boxing right now and they always get big crowds. However, some guys do get too much credit for fighting at home all the time

I would count both Montreal and Romania as home fights for Bute. It be like saying Adamek in Jersey or Poland, both home fights. I understand that money can be made there but there is more to the sport than making money. We must hold each fighter to the same standards, no matter drawing power.

Bute isn't as high profile as Ward, so it doesn't really matter where he beats the cans he's been facing

If he was in the Super 6 and ALL his fights been in either Montreal or Bucharest then I think people would make more noise about it

People like to moan about Ward fighting in Oakland all the time but I see it as smart managing from Goosen

It's cuz Lucian Bute is white. Is that the answer you wanted to hear?

Actually I've heard ppl complain about him fighting at home all the time. They think Andrade got cheated because of it.
