Think it's been great. It's like years worth of boxing condensed into a relatively small amount of time and by the end of it, we may find ourselves looking at boxing in a different way, such as how much emphasis styles have on the outcomes of fights and importance of home advantage.

Without the super six random fights like Dirrell - Abraham would have never happened.

To be fair, I think Martinez is a decent test but it's taken long enough for the lush to get his act together....

Dirrel and Ward undoubtedly.

Dirrell might have found himself frozen out after losing to Froch, he certainly wouldn't have got a shot at Abraham on home turf.

The format has stopped the alphabet body/promoter circle jerk and got 6 of the best (if maybe not THE best)up against each other on a regular basis. That has to be applauded.

Look how much debate its generated so far.

We have emerging talents in Dirrell and Ward.

Kessler fighting for his reputation.

Taylor beaten into retirement.

Froch getting a gift.

Arbaham being DSQ.

Dirrell being accused of acting.

World titles changing hands...

and we are still closer to the start than we are the finish.

I love it.

What is a farce is that boxng fans are constantly criticizing our sport for shit matchmaking yet when something comes along that matches most of the best against the best in a division they are taking pops at it.

The only thing thats a farce is your shit thread !!!!

JT was in the S6 after completley dominating Lacy and going life and death with Froch in a very very close fight after dropping Froch , something the SMW Hector Camacho couldnt pull off .

Abraham knocks JT TFO in devestating fashion and gets slagged for it ???

Ward comes in a relativeley unknown fighter with one good name on his resume and schools the somewhat unbeatable Kessler !!!!!!!

Bute beats the gate keeper of the 168 lb division who remember nearly KO'd Bute and he's the second coming of SRR with Joppy and Bika on his resume , there is good fights out there for Bute , Pavlik , Steiglitz , Dawson , Pascal .

Then AA gets schooled by Dirrell after Dirrell stunk the joint out against Froch .

Tell me ........................ why is the S6 a farce ??????

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.
Spot on.More super 6s please.Tremendous credit to all the fighters who agreed to it win or lose.

Personally I can't wait for the rest of the fights. OK it could have been better if Pavlik & Bute were involved but I'm sure they'll both be a little jealous of the respect the eventual winner gets. TV wise it was a disastrous start and although I - like everyone else, thought primetime was a complete joke at first it does seem that they've got their act together recently which can only be a positive thing for televised boxing.

One thing that I like about it, is that it really does show how when normaly carefully picked match making styles are thrown out the window, expected results are thrown into the air.

There have been some strange things happening in seemingly all the bouts. And not all of it great. But as JonOli says, thats the beauty of matching tough against all different kinds of fighters. We've seen a messy fight, perhaps a bad or certainly questionable decision, a bad KO, frustration boiling over into a DQ, headbutt contraversy, bad cuts. It's all part and parcel of boxing.

Not everything has gone smoothy, we havn't seen 4 beautiful boxing bouts where everything went 'as expected'. But it definitely has not lacked drama and excitement and there is a lot more to come.

It's been great, every fight has had it's portion of drama and controversy

Bring on Froch/Kessler!

Looking forward to Ward/Green too
