Froch/Glen
Abraham/Ward

Froch/Johnson will be a great fight, Glen will bring it like always.

Yep, after Primetime went off air Dan Rafael said on twitter that he'd had it confirmed by Showtime that it will be Froch/Johnson.

There's a few rumours on the general that AA told German TV he will pull out of the Super Six. Poor form if he does.

I napped it in the RbR thread. He can't beat Froch and he can't beat Ward.

Johnson Vs Ward: if Froch can mix up his approach showng the discipline he showed tonight he can win in a gruelling battle. He will make the final IMO.

If Ward smothers Abraham like he has done with other opponents so far he will present Abraham with more oppurtunities to get off. I see Ward outfoxing him throughout and winning on points.

Frochy showed tonight he can discipline himself. A great performance from a top-notch fighter, Bute let himself down by not joining in with this tournament, he will be far fresher but less seasoned than the victor be it any of the four.

I think Ward will win but people keep using words like easy. Bika is never ever easy for any man. He knows this is his last chance and will make it harder then Kessler and Green did. He is willing to throw and take punches on way in. I'm quite looking forward to it..although i doubt it be a classic . Be nice to see Ward tested a bit more.

From the translation I could do with all the noise that is pretty much what he said.We watched on ARD but the sound was low,noise in the room was loud and my German although ok cant work in those conditions.
Very poor if he pulls out.

after two consecutive defeats, i can see why AA will not want to fight ward next. not sure where he goes from here though as he clearly cannot hang with any of the top SMWs.

if AA pulls out, i guess thats ward straight through to the final and could potentially win the supersix after just 3 fights

That would be the smart thing to do, which in boxing usually means it won't happen.

Although it would make more sense for Bute now it's straight knockout as he won't have to worry about coming into the round robin with 0 points

Froch V Bute & Ward v Johnson semi finals, WBC, IBF & WBA belts on the line in the final....would be perfect
