Primetime Wish Carl Froch Good Luck For the ‘Super Six’Final


Recommended Posts

On 17th October 2009 Primetime launched in the UK as an independent Pay Per View broadcaster with the first night of Showtime’s innovative Super Six Tournament.


Six of the world’s finest Super Middleweight pugilists would embark on a course to determine the true Super Middleweight champion of the World which would take 2 years to complete. Over the course of the tournament we would see 2 fighters replaced through injury and a series of brutal KO’s building up to the career defining fight we will see this weekend.


On that first night of Primetime Carl Froch would defend his WBC crown in front of a home town audience in Nottingham with a split decision victory. Later that night Arthur Abraham would give Primetime it’s first KO as he defeated Jermaine Taylor in Germany.


Primetime were fortunate enough to broadcast the Super Six series through to the end of the group stages, bring you unforgettable moments such as Andre Dirrell’s controversial DQ victory over Arthur Abraham, Carl Froch losing his WBC title on points to Mikkel Kessler. Kessler would later be forced to withdraw through injury allowing Carl to recapture the strap after defeating Arthur Abraham in Helsinki for the vacant title.


This spectacular series of fights allowed Primetime to enter the British broadcasting landscape with a significant impact, as well as proving the demand from British consumers for top quality Pay-Per-View Boxing events.
