2 KINGS: KING J on the left and King Arthur Abraham
After several, let's say, umm, months since the Showtime Super Middleweight Super Six Classic Tournament began, Showtime is realizing the mistakes that they have made with this tournament and they are once again promoting it as best as they can despite all the errors they made.
The injuries (whether they were indeed legitimate) and other drawbacks cannot stop us the fight fans from wanting to see one clear champion with his hands raised to be the man at 168 pounds.
Before it all began, many were favoring this man standing with me in the photo, Arthur Abraham, to dominate most of the opponents in the tournament just by his superior power alone knocking out his opponents late in the fight.
Abraham knocked out Jermain Taylor causing him to withdraw from the tournament. Then he got disqualified and lost for the first time of his career against Andre Dirrell with a highly controversial knockdown punch landed on Direll while he was already down on the canvas in the 11th round.
Abraham then went on to the second loss of his career in a one-sided clinic loss to Carl Froch.
Now this Saturday, Abraham takes on the current favorite front runner to win the tournament, undefeated American Andre Ward at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., on Showtime.
Showtime was smart enough to invite all the media to a press conference for this fight the day of the biggest fight of the year. Very wisely, all of the media got an email with capital letters stating: "LUNCH WILL BE SERVED".
So to all the promoters, networks, etc. Always send out a press release or invite with the words: "LUNCH WILL BE SERVED" and I assure you it will be a great success.
We will be ringside at the Home Depot Center covering this fight Saturday and we will be doing an interview with Andre Ward, so send in your questions if you have any.
P.S.: Literally as I'm writing this, I just received another media press conference invite for this fight at Morton's Steakhouse! Now that's what I'm talking about! (Sorry, Media Only, not open to public)
