In 2012 Carl Froch punished and brutally stopped Bute, leaving behind a shell of what was once a supremely confident and devastatingly accurate left upper-cutter. DeGale is offensively reckless and defensively flimsy enough to have been picked apart by the Bute of old, but the gun-shy Romanian-Canadian will be a split second too tentative to seize upon the Londoner's flaws. DeGale out-hustles, imposes his will on and eventually stops his fellow southpaw in eight rounds.
