  1. butler was just not ready – poor defensive – predictable – should think about hiring new trainer

    1. doesn’t need a new trainer just needs more fight experience . hhas a lot of stoppages again at c level fighters. not ready as you said

  2. Because his ring experience and paper records I was expecting to see much more from Butler but he miserable failed. The Japanese was much more aggressive and desire plenty to win the fight just from the beginning.
