Default Has the Super Six been a complete farce?

OK, firstly let me start by saying that the idea is a good one. I for one wasn't too bothered about sitting through another shameful 27 defences by the latest modestly talented Super Middleweight title holder- while they called themselves great and fought part time sailors and fireman.

However this has been a farce thus far.......

1/ Fat Mick fails to get our entrants fights on TV, let alone the opposition. Surely the hole operation was to raise the profile of and crown an indisputable world champion.

2/ There is another title holder at Super middle not involved. All he's going to do is wait for the winner - all them out and he gets a straight shot. No wonder he didn't want to get involved.

3/ Jermain Taylor- WTF was he doing there? Outboxed by Sugar Ray Kelly Pavlik, he belonged in a rest home, not the boxing ring.

4/ Andre Dirrel boxing like a super middle hector Camacho and getting robbed.

5/ Mikkel Kessler been exposed as a complete fraud after been termed the eire to the throne.

6/ Arthur Abraham post slip punch of the tournament.


Its been a disaster.

Er........... no?

Its not been perfect and could still fall apart yet. But do you really think these fights would've been made without this tournament?

Not at all.

The format has it's flaws, but so would any other format that anyone could bother to put forward.

I'd rather have it this way than loads of ''champions'' hiding behind their titles.

You mention Jermain Taylor - at least he was willing to stick his balls on the line, could quite easily have re-built his confidence fighting clowns for the next year or two.

Dirrell lost a close one in his first shot at a world title and instead of taking a tune up or something he went in with one of the most feared punchers in the world and produced a career best performance,

Kessler suffered a devastating lost but is now straight in against Froch. No easy fights in between, just tough fight after tough fight.

It's great for boxing.

Dirrell boxes like Camacho all right. Camacho was super negative when intimidated, Dirrell fought like that throughout the Frovh fight and without even beig stunned

Dirrell was impressive in the Abraham fight, but different angles have brought me to a different conclusion about the outcome.

A DQ: in all probability, yes. But if Dirrell wasn't really hurt, and couldve continued no bother, would it have garnered as much fuss as when Barrett smacked Haye whilst he was down?

As I say, Arthur probably deserved to be DQ'd, but if Dirrell really did act the trembling leg and all that (released from hosptal without concussion if I'm not mistaken, if I am I apologise) than that goes further than B-Hop feigning being low blowed and taking five minutes, that is sickenng and a massive insult to those who have suffered genuine injury in the ring.

And judging by the other angles, I think this may the case. That would be twice Dirrell has employed questionable tactics, and would lead me to believe he lacks the mental intangibles to truly succeed.

I think that will make fighters, particularly younger ones, reluctant to enter into this format in future if they get the opportunity

Not a total farce, but farcical in some aspects, such as the ref in the last fight.

Camacho is actually an amazing comparison. Two fighters that get on their bike when punched back

all jokes aside I was ready to buy in to Dirrell as he outworked Abraham. At the end I thought 'poor kid, sparked by one of the hardest hitters P4P, he could be really messed up' but as I say....some skills and fearsome attributes no doubt, but has got the minerals?

I tend to think nit.

I'm looking forward to froch ending the kessler myth.

Then it will be interesting to see how he fares with ward.

Anyone think the new entry can do anything?
