Fight Camp 360: Inside The Super Six World Boxing Classic – Episode 10

The episode starts with green screen footage from the day before the tournament was announced, over two years ago. Hey, Jermain!

The show flashes back to the May fight between Arthur Abraham and Andre Ward. At the press conference, Virgil Hunter, Ward’s trainer was picking on Abraham by saying that his promoter didn’t have confidence in him anymore. He stayed on him when Abraham was trying on his gloves, saying that he didn’t hit hard. It was pretty disrespectful.

With the production of the fight, they made Abraham into a pretty compelling character. I actually care more about Abraham now than I did before this tournament started. Arthur is now portrayed as a fighter who doesn’t follow his game plan for whatever reason.

Before Carl Froch’s fight with Glen Johnson, Ward says that he thinks it should be he and Froch in the final because they were there from the start.

And yes, we get to see Carl’s girlfriend for a bit. During the fight, Glen got a lot more of Carl than I remember.

It looks like there will be one last Fight Camp 360 before the Super Six Final previewing the big fight between Andre Ward and Carl Froch.

Edit: Duan found the video on YouTube.


Super Six World Boxing Classic – Arthur Abraham Vs. Andre Ward Play By Play

It’s been a little while since the last Super Six fight, but after the latest Fight Camp 360, I’m pretty excited for this one, even though Abraham has struggled lately.

You would think that Ward should dominate, but Abraham’s back is against the wall and he needs to come out swinging.

R1
Abraham started out on the offensive and Ward on the defensive. Abraham landed a nice jab that caused Ward to slip. Nothing much more happened, though Ward was cautious.

R2
This thing may get dirty. Ward picked up his pace and slipped a few shots underneath Abraham’s peek-a-boo defense. Abraham looks a little frustrated and maybe a bit picked on by the referee.

R3
Abraham’s roughness seems to be affecting Ward, which some will say is a bit of his own medicine. He looked good in the round and currently has landed more punches. I have him up 2-1.

Fight Camp 360: Inside The Super Six World Boxing Classic – Episode 9

I believe this is the first episode in six months. And follows the terrible Pacquiao/Mosley Fight Camp 360 series. Let’s hope the stench of that series doesn’t carry back over to this one, which has been very well done so far.

The show starts with a minute from every camp of the remaining four fighters in the Super Six (Carl Froch, Glen Johnson, Arthur Abraham, and Andre Ward). Abraham knows it’s his last chance in the tournament and he’s been somewhat of a disappointment. Ward talks about being a little overlooked.

The Allan Green vs. Glen Johnson fight is recapped. Gary Shaw told Johnson that he has to be his fighter now that Andre Dirrell is out of the tournament. I’m sure that went over well with Johnson’s promoter. Johnson’s trainer says they’ll get out of him before the 9th round.

Green’s story is that Johnson continued to hit him in the back of the head, including the knockout punch. Green complained to the referee while he was on the ground. Green was turning away from shots, which partially seemed to be the reason why he was getting hit there.

Next is the Carl Froch vs. Arthur Abraham fight and like usual, Froch’s girl is the star. She’s near ringside, right behind the announce team and her foul language can be heard over the broadcast. Someone tells her to step back and she says no, until she’s told that she doesn’t have to stop shouting. Froch completely out-classed him and maybe even more so than I remember.

There’s a great moment when Abraham and Froch meet each other after the fight and awkwardly have small talk. They take a photo together and Abraham looks a little beaten.

Boxing 2011 – Video Preview

We are now only a matter of days away from the first big fight of the year where undefeated champions Timothy Bradley and Devon Alexander will face off in a light welterweight title unification match.

The folks at Gorilla Productions have put together another incredible video package highlighting some of the big fights in store for us in 2011. I’m sure I have said it before, but GP are the very best at this.
