John Scully (Bute): ďI would go with Bute. I think Bute is kind of on a roll. Heís definitely on a high. He realizes that thereís some big fights coming up for him if he wins this fight. I just like his overall skill set and especially those body shots that he drops in there, so Iíll go with him to win the decision. I donít think anybodyís going to knock Froch out. I think itíll definitely go the distance.Ē

Sam Garcia (Froch): ďThis is a tough one. Iím going to go with Carl Froch in his hometown. I think heís probably not as fast, but the guy just knows how to fight. I think heís going to land that straight right hand. I think heís intelligent. I think itís going to be a pretty good night for him, maybe a little bit of an intense boxing match between the two. Iím going to go with Froch in his hometown by decision.Ē

Henry Ramirez (Bute): ďItís an interesting fight. Based on recent history, Carl Froch is a tough, rugged guy, but I just think Lucian Bute is a better boxer, more of a technician in there, maybe even a better puncher than Carl Froch. I think heís an all-around better fighter. I see Bute winning a decision, kind of a wide decision.Ē

Ronnie Shields (Bute): ďThatís a close fight right there, just for the simple reason that Froch was so disappointed when he didnít do as well against Andre Ward as he thought he was going to do. But Bute is really confident right now because heís getting status as one of the best fighters in the world. This is going to be a good fight, because although Bute is a southpaw, I donít think thatís really going to bother Froch that much, but I just think Bute might be a step ahead of him. Just him being considered one of the best fighters in the world, his confidence is going to be there, so Iím going with Bute by close decision.Ē

Eddie Mustafa Muhammad (Froch): ďI like Froch by unanimous decision. I just think that being at home is an advantage for him. The people cheering and booing, thatís what he feeds off of. Plus heís a good fighter. Carl Froch is no punk. I mean, heís a good fighter. He comes to fight. He beat Glen Johnson. It was a tough fight, but he weathered the storm and went at it and took care of business.

ďI donít think Bute ever came out of Canada to fight [Note: He fought once in Romania last year, but otherwise his last bouts outside of Canada came very early in his career]. We donít know how heís gong to react to a negative audience, and thatís going to go in Frochís favor. Iíve been to Nottingham. I know how they act out there.Ē

[QUOTE=GRUSTLER]Definitely a tough fight to call but Froch has been through some wars with elite fighters so Bute may be a lil fresher. On top of that, dude is hitting hard and Froch gets hit. To me fight could go either way but for me..... Going to lean towards Bute for the late round stoppage...

[QUOTE=gingerbreadman]Mate, everyone's entitled to their opinion. I'm expecting a really good fight, maybe a FOTY contender if we're lucky. If a blowout happens, then OK. Must say, on a specific point, that Froch looked very, very sculpted at the weigh-in, and that's not too good a thing to be in...
