I think Ward will stop Taylor...... and Kessler has a 50-50 chance of stopping Froch I'd say.

Other than that.... spot on

I did something similar this morning and ended up with 4 fighters on 2 points.

Froch will be lucky to win another fight, I think Dirrell can outbox Ward and IMHO Taylor will outbox both Ward and Kessler.

That made my standings:

Abraham 8 pts
Taylor 4 pts
Kessler 2 pts
Froch 2 pts
Ward 2 pts
Dirrel 2pts

Which surprised even me.

I had Ward as my dark horse for the tourney before last night, and he showed the expected promise last night. What remains to be seen though (as with Dirrell IMO) was just how much of that was down to him, rather than his opponent making him look good.

You have to ask whether Kessler can change up his tactics, and maybe have a closer second go round with Ward. I doubt it, but always possible.

I don't want to predicate past the next round as i can't foresee to much and things and complications may arise along with fighters losing and going into the final fight with a loss.

Arthur Abraham Vs Andre Dirrell- Well i'm going to put part of Danny Flexen's article at the bottom of this and it will be interesting to read about Dirrell and him sulking. I feel he looked very good when aggressive and angry and i see him taking rounds against Abraham but i don't see him taking the fight. Abraham i see breaking him mentally and physically and i think he could stop him late. Yes he made Froch miss but he Abraham is very accurate and is a clean one punch knockout artist where as imo Froch relies on accumulation of power punches to take his opponents will.

Andre Ward Vs Jermaine Taylor-I just cannot see Taylor winning this fight, I think Ward can only get better and i feel in terms of skillset and also belief he just has more and the fight stylistically is his fight to win.

Mikkel Kessler Vs Carl Froch-This is the one i'm really not sure about. A lot of people going for Kessler i'm gonna stick my neck out and go for Froch. Unbeaten men are hard to beat we all know this but i also feel that last night may linger with Kessler more then it did against Calzaghe.

I think it will be nip and tuck but i feel Froch can get close to him and i also feel his in fighting and roughness may again upset Kessler and make it more of a fight then people think it will be and a fight it will be. I just go for Froch at this stage but i haven't studied it to much so don't take it as gospel from me but i think the table will look like this at the end of round 2 of the super six.

Abraham-6 Points
Ward-5 Points
Froch-4 Points
Dirrell-0 Points
Kessler-0 Points
Taylor-0 Points

Ok here's Dirrell's Uncle and Trainer talking about Froch, and the upcoming fight against Arthur Abraham.

Dirrell has just had some dental work done but his uncle and trainer Lawson Jnr was only to happy to talk up the chances of his nephew’s friend and former amateur team-mate.

“I’ve just been with his team watching him, on tape, getting some work in,” Lawson, who will be travelling with Dirrell and his father to support Ward, revealed. “He looked real strong and I have every confidence that he can outbox the best fighters in this tournament. Hopefully he won’t get a raw deal like we did [against Froch].

“Their fight will get heated faster than Dirrell-Froch. I think Kessler is in for a surprise, Ward will start faster than he has in the past. I’ll have my money on him. What impressed me most about him was his high output of work, how he stayed controlled and busy.”

Lawson remains aggrieved that the split decision in Nottingham last month went the way of Froch and is relieved his nephew’s next bout – against Abraham – will be State-side.

“I definitely want to thank the English fans, so many of them embraced us. Andre definitely won, the world has seen it and the fans let us know who the real winner was. The English fans were not biased at all.

“He whipped the s*** out of Froch, hurt him in the 10th, the 11th, was beating him rounds one through five. The only rounds you could give to Froch was when he was fighting dirty, rounds six through eight. That’s all.

We’re talking about Abraham in January, but we’ll never go out of the country again. If they want us to continue to fight in the Super Six, the Abraham fight will have to be in America, but they’ve already said it will be in America; they’re talking MSG.

Abraham, topping the Super Six table by virtue of recording the only stoppage so far, over Jermain Taylor, is convinced that Kessler will prevail on Saturday.

“I expect a tough fight and a very hot battle,” Abraham stated. “Ward is not to be underestimated, he is technically very sound and can also punch hard. But I hope that my new [promotional] stablemate Mikkel Kessler wins. He is very versatile, very experienced and he has great vision and anticipation in the ring. And most importantly, the ‘Viking Warrior’ is a true fighter. I would go with a points victory for Mikkel.”

And he added: “I am back in training in Berlin. On November 16, we will move training camp to Kienbaum. I cannot wait to fight Andre Dirrell. I have started my preparations and look forward to returning to the ring.”

Why dont team Dirrell let it go? other than sum haters on forums everyone agree's Andre Dirrell was not worthy of a world title.

Furthermore this 'were not travelling again' is bollocks as it was two foreign judges who scored it for Froch !!

I'd laugh if Ward lost to Taylor or Dirrell - anything is possible and when it comes to speed and pure boxing ability its not as far fetched as it sounds.

I still think Kessler will beat Froch.Ward may have been flattered a bit by last night but he and Abraham look the best so far.I still think Taylor could suprise a few people.

Could Kess do anything differently should he meet Ward again?

Is he done in this tournament as far as winning goes or can he regroup and come back stronger?

I'm not writing him off yet.
