How Far Did Bute Climb in the Super Middleweight Rankings?
The Super Six has been stealing all of the headlines, but elsewhere in the division Lucian Bute rematched and defeated Librado Andrade. The bout ended quicker than expected, with Bute leaving Andrade in the canvas in the fourth round. It was the best performance of his career, and it was enough to raise his status in the division to be sure. But the question remains, just how high did Lucian Bute climb in the loaded super middleweight division with the win? Was he able to get ahead of Super Six favorites Andre Ward and Arthur Abraham, or did he not quite climb that high yet?
