Number 3 rated Bute takes on no.4 rated slugger Andrade. Bute has beaten good fighters in Bika and Berrio and a win over Andrade will determine just how good he is. Andrade on the oter hand is trying to prove he belongs in the top 5 and that the Kessler loss is in the past.
No one will argue that Bute is the most skiled of the two. He isn't easy to hit, he's a good counterpuncher and he can crack. However it seems to me that in his last two fights he didn't look all that good. Oh sure the Berrio KO was good and he stopped a faded Joppy. But in the Berrio fight he was easily hit and his eye was swollen. He didn't look very fast either. the Joppy fight he kind of laid in there with Joppy at times on the inside, now this may be due to the fact that he was fighting a faded middleweight and he didn't fear Joppy's punch. But I believe that he may might be weight drained. And that is bad news if he's facing Andrade because he will pour it on unless you stop him. and so far no one has. Andrade took a pounding against Kessler but at the end of the fight it was Kessler bleeding from the nose and Andrade who didn't have a mark on his face.
I believe Andrade isn't human but unfortunately his skills are. So it all depends here, if Bute uses his legs and can go all night he whould land the cleaner punches and win it. If his stamina is not what we think it is and Andrade can nust him up he might not see the final bell.
