Fightwriter on Abraham-Taylor

By Graham Houston

So near to victory yet so far away against Carl Froch in April, Jermain Taylor faces another strong European fighter on Saturday when he meets Germany’s Arthur Abraham in the first of the eagerly awaited “Super Six” contests in Berlin. The 12-rounder will be shown on tape-delay on the Showtime network, followed by live coverage of Carl Froch’s fight with Andre Dirrell. These 12-rounders are what boxing should be all about: the best fighters fighting the best, and fans debating the outcome. For those unfamiliar with the format, six of the world’s top fighters in the super middleweight division are meeting in a round-robin tournament, each boxer guaranteed three fights. Mikkel Kessler will meet Andre Ward in the third of the opening bouts in the tournament. First up, though, is Abraham against Taylor, which is expected to get the tournament off to a thrilling and dramatic start. (More)
