Bute was outclassed. Problem was; he hadn't fought any real hard hitting fighters before he entered the cobra's domain.

Andre Ward, a current “Champion in Recess” due to recovering from his broken hand, decided to give credit where credit was due and congratulate Froch on a fight well fought:
Bute can be broken.

A fight between Ward and Froch is certainly coming soon, and there’s only one thing to say about that:
@andreward When is the rematch between the Cobra and you? I think the Cobra wants your belts.
