An Unsuccessful Mugging in Montreal: GIF Spotlight With Lucian Bute VS Edison Miranda

The GIF above is of Lucian Bute, defending a major world Super Middleweight title against Colombia's Edison "Pantera" Miranda, on the seventeenth of April, 2010. Bute delights his adopted hometown crowd as Miranda tries to mug for him and gets obliterated in the third round by one of Bute's sweeping uppercuts. It is easily forgotten but Bute at this time was riding high and coming off the back of one of the year's best Super Middleweight performances in stopping Librado Andrade for the first time in a much demanded rematch, five months prior.

Andrade had developed a reputation as being one of the sport's most durable warriors and the stoppage helped blow up Bute's reputation as a puncher leading into this match with Miranda, who either missed that or zero bleeps were given that day anyway by the slugger who'd gone to war just as unwarily with Kelly Pavlik and Arthur Abraham. Unfortunately, fan-friendly, if not wisely fan-friendly Edison Miranda is now listed as a fugitive by federal authorities, indicted with several others on drug trafficking charges, as reported by Boxing Scene, yesterday.
