IBF Super Middleweight Titleholder 23 0 (18)
Last Year s Ranking: 58
Status Report: It s hard to have a better year than Bute had. His wins over Librado Andrade in their rematch (KO 4), Edison Miranda (KO 3), and Jesse Brinkley (KO 9) were as good as anything anyone did in the Super Six tourney, which is why he jumps 41 spots.
Future: A match against Ireland s Brian Magee in March.
