The Super Six World Boxing Classic edition of Showtime's Fight Camp 360 returns tonight at 10pm EDT on Showtime Extreme, and after the 45-minute show ends, the channel will replay Andre Ward's coming out party from 2009, which was of course his dominant win over Mikkel Kessler in the first stage of the tournament.
Speaking of blasts from the past, let's look back at the original Super Six World Boxing Classic promo:
My, how the tournament would change. But despite my occasional protests that the tournament has, overall, been far from what was promised, yes, we have seen some good matchups and some good fights that otherwise we would not have seen. Maybe the biggest two things that have happened are, in fact, Andre Ward becoming a star-in-the-making and perhaps -- knock on wood -- the next great American name in boxing, and the exposure of Arthur Abraham as a one-dimensional, seemingly-protected fighter from his pre-tournament days in Germany. Those two, of course, meet on Saturday.
