Obviously the Froch vs. Bute fight is the major piece of news that affects now the division looks. With Andre Ward having a previous dominant win over Carl Froch to his credit, he’s still the clear top dog. But Froch has himself right back into the mix after the huge, surprising KO win. The next question is, how far down does Bute fall, and will he exercise his immediate hometown rematch clause?
There’s other news in the 168 lbs division, however. Mikkel Kessler is campaigning as a light heavyweight right now, so he’s out of the mix. Meanwhile, several young prospects continue to be on the rise.
So there’s a lot to see there, and you should certainly check out our updated top 10 in boxing’s super middleweight division following the Froch vs. Bute results to see where everyone stands today.
