Default Showtime Cruiserweight Tourney?

Consider the following:

1. Cruiserweights are big enough to have some major battles.

2. Cruiserweight is a class that doesn't get much attention.

3. Showtime has been putting on some good tournaments, but they are about to close the last two.

4. Showtime will be looking for a new money making venture in boxing.

5. Showtime is affiliated with Antonio Tarver.

6. Tarver is looking pretty descent at the moment.

7. Tarver and Showtime could both make some serious cash on a tourney followed by a big fight, before Tarver retires...again.

Tarver
Huck
Cunningham
Lebedev
Wlodarczyk
Jones

That way we'd have an Undisputed CW champ and I get to see Huck/Cunningham II

I believe that the TS is trying to figure out why.

I thought there had been discussions about this. I guess they never got off the ground? Or still ongoing?

I don't think Tarver's name was mentioned, but this was also before he had jumped into the CW pool, if I recall.

I'm not sure the Super 6 format will ever be used again.

More likely to see a 4-man (Darch, Mares, Agbeko, Perez) sort of tournament.

Huck, Cunningham, Lebedev and Tarver for me.

I'd love to see this happen and I do believe theres been talks about it. I recall reading something on a polish site that Wlodarczyk was interested in a tourney. There's plenty of talent there and I think that on any good day, these guys can all beat each other!

They tried to put something like this together a while back, but it fell apart. With Sauerland promoting both Huck and Cunningham, they would need to be on board, and they really got burned by the Super 6.

I'd give Tarver a fair chance against Huck.

Huck
Cunningham
Hernandez
Lebedev
Frenkel
Tarver

I'd like to see that but you've got 5 of the 6 who fight exclusively in Europe so I doubt Showtime would really be interested. Get Adamek in there after he loses to Vitali and it could be a different story.
