Bute got hit with some big shots and lost his legs. He couldn't use his legs anymore and just rope-a-doped, and let Froch tee off on him.
Froch fought a better fight and had the better intangibles that night. Rematch in Montreal might be a different story... but let's see Bute in a tune up first.
Counter puncher doesn't mean backpedaller you do know that right? Look at Bute vs Johnson....tell me who was the aggressor.
