Just imagine that amongst the weight classes that make up professional boxing that one stood out the most due to the fact that in it were an elite group of fighters that are top-notch well rounded super contenders that have endured pain, hard-work, dedication, commitment and criticism from peers just to enter into a class of fighters chosen from the far reaches of the globe just to fight in a premiere weight class known of the best six fighters in the world.

Well Showtime has come up with this idea and right now the first stage has taken place and the feuding has begun.

These are the current six fighters that make up the Super Six and they are considered to be in an elite class of fighters, fighters that make up a new class of fighters with hearts of Lions and the courage of Warriors, a class that never existed before until these six were found and the Super-Middle Heavy Weights were made. The class ranges in weight from 158 to 170 lbs and the requirements are that as a fighter you must be up for what ever amongst these fierce fighters.


All fighters that are participating are accredited in the fighting realm as some are Olympic medalist, current title holders, contenders, or just down right the best possible subject to consider a boxing career. There are now light-weights here, or for that matter, losers that have been placed in this once in a life time position to proclaim and elevate their boxing career or path. In fact for some, this is just to be considered as a off-season warm-up to start the venture to meet some of the other top rated fighters in the world.
