What does the super middleweight division look like after the crazy ending of the Arthur Abraham vs. Andre Dirrell Match?
Finally the Super Six Stage 2 matches have begun, and Dirrell vs. Abraham proved to be worth the wait. Of course Dirrell was using his superior boxing to put rounds in the bag and he even had Abraham injured, down and frustrated. King Arthur was coming on late, but then the punch heard round all of Detroit was landed, and Dirrell lay unconcious on the canvas. The result, a DQ win for Dirrell, the first career loss for Arthur Abraham and a shake-up in the super middleweight division and the Super Six World Boxing Classic standings as well.

King Arthur had been atop the division standings following his devastating win over Jermain Taylor. Of course he has to be dropped down now, but how far has he fallen, and does Dirrell deserve to be ahead of him in the top 10? Also, that makes room for Lucian Bute to move up in the division even though he’s not in the Super Six. Did he vault into the top position, or is it tournament favorite Andre Ward that moved into the number 1 perch?
