-Buzz Murdock :

Come on the Cobra. destroyed Butte.....he's strictly as Frankie Warren would say---a domestic, local hero for some reason in Canada.....A finished product in the worst sense....like promoting this guy outside of Canada (which i guess he is, since he's on tv all over the world) is a joke....He's riding off his looks and charm...not much of a combination for blocking punches....I mean Karl Froch destroyed this guy....and Pascal took care of what was left...man that Huck knock-out was unreal.

I will admit I am looking forward to Alvaraez-Prieto. The Argentine Prieto can fight and can punch. He is a live underdog and I would not be one bit surprised if he ko'd Alvarez. I think this fight will produce action and excitement. As for the Bute fight, well not really interested. If Bute does not wipe this guy out early, he needs to strongly consider retirement. This should be a gimme fight for him and is Haymon's way of trying to set up Chavez-Bute later this year (Chavez just had his gimme). And if it isn't, not a good sign for Bute's future going forward.
