    Super 6 is suddenly becoming less than super. Excellent premise but too many fighters hurt and dropping out.

    If he is faking Showtime should sue him for every cent he's got.

    sucks big time, unless they somehow get Bute involved.

    I think the tournament is insignificant compared to the news that he might have a neurological problem... the tournament was a good idea in theory.. but in practice, it is kind of turning out to be shit.

    Showtime kept postponing the fucking fight and this is what happens. I've been looking foward to Dirrell-Ward for what seems like countless months, and once they announced it wouldnt take place at the end of September and moved it to November, I knew it was going to be doomed. Showtime fucked themselves and boxing fans over by delaying events in hope of all the marketable fighters being healthy enough to compete on the same card.

    I have to agree with the poster above, they are spreading these fight out so damn long that someone is going to get hurt at some point, even K1 only wait a couple months after their first tournament for the finals. They should consider this if they ever do it again, make the tournament in a span of one year and have them fight round robins every 2 months.

    they will never do anything like this again except maybe with young no-name up-n-comers. But even that won't happen because that could derail the can crushing hype trains.

    I said when it started it would be a miracle if they got through all the fights, they should just have Froch v AA fight let the winner fight Ward and be done with it.
