I know they were suppose to have some type of tournament but I don't know where that stands right now.


What do you guys think?

Tim Bradley
Devon Alexander
Amir Khan
Marcos Maidana
Zab Judah
Nate Campbell/Victor Ortiz winner



I would be hyped for this... Now the downside, obviously, would mean that these fighters would be tied up for the next two years and wouldn't have a shot at Mayweather or Pacquiao.

I think SOMEONE should make this happen.

Truth be told I wouldn't mind seeing Manny in that tournament. Of course I know it would never happen but that would make it very interesting. Hell go a Super 8 and throw Marquez and Paulie in there.

Manny and Floyd would never do anything like this. Not enough money involved.

I would prefer super 4 or super 8, single elimination, with a losers bracket.

Now thats a damn good idea.

It's a great idea. All the super 6 guys at 168 have raised their profile and even the losers are probably going to end up richer as a result of it.

With the exception of Zab and maybe Khan, all of the 140 guys could use the publicity. And obviously there's some really interesting matchups in there.

It would be interesting to see HBO following SHOWTIME for a change.

There SHOULD be no need for a tournament. But we all know just make the damn fights aint how it goes, more's the pity. As of the way boxing is right now, I tip my hat to showtime and the 168 lb'ers to commiting to a couple of years of quality fights against the top opposition and would be happy to see HBO follow suit. Maybe they can look at the super six as a blueprint but try to improve on it somehow. Make it more inclusive, as in the door not being closed to the rest of the division for 2 whole years while the top 6 scrap it out. Not sure how it could work, but hey, thats what those cunts get paid for.

End of the day these cunts should all be fighting each other anyway....regardless....

Too many pussies wanting to protect their phony fabricated records these days.

Boxers make the belts, its not the other way around. So lets get it on.

I WISH it would be easy to just make the damn fight BUT for some odd reason it just doesn't work out that way. I think the "Super 6" as been a success over on Showtime and just thought that HBO would follow up. 140 is loaded and I would love to see all of the different match ups.

I like the idea of an eight man single elimination tourney.
