On This Day: Carl Froch edges Andre Dirrell and Arthur Abraham ices Jermain Taylor as Super Six tournament begins

The wonderful Super Six began with wins for Carl Froch and Arthur Abraham, writes Matt Bevan

BACK in 2009, the super-middleweight Super Six tournament got underway, as four of the fighters in the mix went head-to-head in Berlin and Nottingham.

IN Nottingham, Carl Froch took a close split decision victory over Andre Dirrell to retain the WBC title, while over in Berlin, Arthur Abraham produced a stunning final round knockout to get the better of Jermain Taylor.

THE Super Six was an incredible concept when it was announced by Showtime, however with fighters pulling out and being replaced by inferior men and the fact it took two years to complete, means there hasn’t really been a similar tournament since its inception.
