We get one of those all in 1 night competitions this Wednesday in Australia as we get the "Super 8".
This competition, just like the international "Prizefighter" competitions features fighters from around the world and at various stages in their career.
The most well known of the fighters on the show is former world champion Hasim Rahman (50-8-2-1, 41) who will begin his efforts by fighting against the little known Kiwi Anthony Nansen (3-2, 1). Rahman might be shot to pieces and no where near the fighter he once was but he should get past Nansen and into the Semi-Final.
Nansen isn't the only novice Kiwi on the show and the other is Brice Ritani-Coe (3-2-1, 3) who will be fighting American veteran Alonzo Butler (30-2-1, 22) in what should be another mismatch in favour of the man with more experience. In theory a win for Butler would set up a contest with Rahman in the semi.
The second half of the draw should, from what we are aware, see an all "down under" rivalry as veteran puncher Kali Meehan (38-5, 31) takes on the very under-rated Hunter Sam (10-2-2, 4). This looks like another mismatch on paper though we actually view this as the best of the quarter finals and, having followed Sam for a while, we'd actually be very tempted to back him to score the upset here.
The final quarter final will see former "Prizefighter" champions facing off as boxer-turn-taxi driver Martin Rogan (16-5, 8) takes on the under-rated Michael Sprott (40-21, 17). We've got to back Sprott here, despite the extra miles on the the clock.
We're guessing we'll see Sprott fighting Butler in the final but there is no sure thing in these competitions and anything really can happen.
On the same show there will also be a none competition bout as unbeaten under-card fighters battle each other. This bout will see Hemi Ahio (2-0, 2) fighting against William Quarrie (4-0, 1) in what could be a very interesting low profile bout wth 2 men who will be fighting to win.
