Can we please have another Super 6 tournament?

By Dallan O’ Donnell: After the super-middleweight Super 6 came to an end, I was a little disappointed. Personally, I think that the idea was superb. The prospect of pitting the best fighters in the division against each other was great, making them fight each other in their prime.

Of course, Andre Ward won the tournament, beating Carl Froch in the final.

So, why not put another Super 6 tournament on in either the welterweight division or the middleweight division? Personally, I prefer the middleweight idea.

At the minute, the division is so tough with good fighters around every corner. The likes of Sergio Martinez, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., Felix Sturm, Martin Murray, Matthew Macklin, Darren Barker and former light middleweight king, Miguel Cotto who is tempted to step up to the middleweight division.

There are seven potential candidates for a possible tournament, all mouth-watering clashes and a huge potential to make millions of dollars.

The sport needs something like this after recent controversies have given the sport bad press and a negative image around the world. Of course, Martinez and Chavez have agreed to fight later this year but I’m sure they wouldn’t say no to a rematch.

Then, there is Felix Sturm. Both Martin Murray and Matthew Macklin would love rematches against him after both fighters had contentious decisions against him.

It is only an idea, but boxing needs the best to fight the best to remain ahead of the ever growing MMA and UFC franchise.

What Super 6 would you like to see in what division?
