Showtime's Super Six World Boxing Classic In Detroit
This Saturday Detroit is hosting Showtime's Super Six Boxing Classic at Joe Louis Arena. Showtime took the six best super middleweights and created a tournament (to obviously compete with HBO boxing). The tournament is in its second phase and this is the first bout. The main event includes Andre "The Matrix" Dirrell (18-1, 13 KOs) vs "King" Arthur Abraham (31-0, 25 KOs). The Flint, Michigan native Dirrell won a bronze medal in the 2004 Olympics and has super speed. Abraham is the current leader in the tournament with a knockout win over Jermain Taylor. We will see if the speed of Dirrell can out match the power of Abraham. This is the biggest boxing event to come to Detroit in many years. The event will be shown live on Showtime and if you are in the Detroit are the ticket prices range from $25-$175.
