The 35 year old Martinez will be on a pension by the time a Super 6 tournament finds a contender for him. Even then, the way this Super 6 has gone, it'll just end up being Kelly Pavlik or Paul Williams.

Martinez pops on his shoes:

And settles down at his chair for the final of Flea Man's middleweight tournament:

Imagine the arguments between fans if Ward and Kessler never fought or even Froch v Taylor/Kessler/Abraham.

Although the tourney has not been perfect it far exceeds the usual limited tomato can shit we are generally fed.
i agree

They need to do a knocout format-

Top 16 or 8 fights......then progress to the final.

Then you dont have fighters who have lost wanting to pull out.

I think you guys are forgetting that 2 prospects became legit - Dirrell and Ward. 2 middleweights embarking on SMW glory have been tried and tested - Abrahms and Taylor. 2 legit champs gave us an incredible fight - Froch and Kessler. 1 road warrior has made a rightful pay day and 1 big mouth has taken another rightful beating - Glen and Green.

Planning boxing over 3 years is never going to work but its produced great stuff.

It needs to be done across the board. 140 is pretty much doing it anyway with single fights, Welter has everyone chasing one guy, lightweight is proving the best tonight. Featherweight could do with something like this, as could middleweight (to create a perfect no.2 to fight Martinez) and Cruiser is doing it.

I think 4/8-man elimination is more feasible though. This tournament has really put it's fighters through the grinder, Froch has shown himself to have immense grit throughout.
Middleweight desperately needs sorting out..... both domestically and on the world stage.

Too many fighters just biding their time fighting bums..... you aren't even getting the lower half top 10 fighters facing each other either. Just shite.

A good champion in Martinez is having to call people out, as was his #1 contender in Williams.... before they fought each other again.

Bloody joke

Domestically there's Macklin, Barker, Murray..... then the two Irish lads and McEwan... all fighting bums.... why exactly?

Can't be money..... can't be waiting for a chance.... puzzling

a knockout round is more practical. or 4 fighters with a round robin. this is too vast to make sense.

and 3 fights a year maybe a possabilty.
