We have the first winner in SHOWTIMES’s groundbreaking SUPER SIX Tournament. The bout took place at Berlin’s O2 World before a sold-out crowd of 14,000+.

In a clash of former middleweight world champions, unbeaten Arthur Abraham (31-0, 25 KOs) scored a spectacular late knockout over Jermain Taylor (28-4, 17 KOs) before 14,000+ at the sold out O2 World in Berlin, Germany in the first round of SHOWTIME’s “Super Six World Boxing Classic” super middleweight tournament. A huge right hand put Taylor down and out with just 16 seconds left in the fight.

Round Seven: Taylor’s jab still working well, but when the fight opens up, it’s Abraham doing more damage.
