Boxing: Ward vs Froch, Bute vs Johnson, Kessler vs Stieglitz, Super Six 2?

On October 29 and November 5, all four major world championship belts from the super middleweight (168 lbs) division will be on the line.

The Showtime Super Six Tournament concludes on October 29 with WBA world champion Andre Ward (24-0, 13 knockouts) facing WBC world champion Carl Froch (27-1, 20 knockouts) at the Boardwalk Hall in New Jersey.

Undefeated knockout artist Lucian Bute (29-0, 24 knockouts) was noticeably missing from the Super Six and has brutalized good, but not elite competition until now.

November 5, Bute puts his IBF world title on the line against former world champion, Glen Johnson (51-15-2, 35 knockouts) in the second of a three-fight deal with Showtime.

Showtime is likely to televise WBO world champion Robert Stieglitz's November 5 title defense against Mikkel Kessler (44-2, 33 knockouts) according to ESPN.

Kessler was an original member of the Super Six, but dropped out after two rounds of combat with an eye injury, losing to Ward by unanimous decision and then defeating Froch by unanimous decision.

Three championship fights within a week of one another with six world class boxing talents? Hmm, sounds like a Super Six reboot to me.

The winners of these three championship matches will likely be offered an attractive mult-million dollar package for two to three more fights with Showtime.
