Recap To Date Of The Super Six World Boxing Classic

If you're not a big boxing fan, the Super Six World Boxing Classic is a tournament featuring six of the top super middleweight (168lbs) boxers in the world. They each have three fights in a round robin style set of three group stages, and then the top four advance to a semifinal and final to declare the top super middleweight in the world.

I mention this at our Bay Area site because the leader after the first two fights is Oakland's own Andre Ward. Ward shocked the boxing world in his opening fight by winning a technical decision over Mikkel Kessler, arguably the favorite coming into the Super Six tournament. Ward followed that up with an easy unanimous decision over Allan Green. His next fight will be against fellow American prospect Andre Dirrell at a time and location still to be determined.

After the jump, I've posted a video that recaps the rules of the tournament, and then provides a recap of the fights to date.
