WBC super middleweight champ Carl Froch scored a majority decision over 42-year-old Glen Johnson to advance to the finals of Showtime's Super Six World Boxing Classic. Both men showed great determination - and solid chins - through all 12 rounds but Froch was slightly more effective. One judge had it a draw at 114-114 but was overruled by scores of 117-111 and 116-112. Froch will face undefeated WBA champ Andre Ward in the Super Six final this fall in what should be a great fight. Johnson showed no signs of slowing down and remains a top contender at either 168 or 175.
Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. passed the biggest test of his pro career - and captured hs first title belt - with a majority decision over WBC middleweight champ Sebastian Zbik. Zbik threw and landed more punches in nearly every round but the judges favored the relentless body attack of Chavez. Scores were 116-112, 115-113 and 114-114. At 25, Chavez is still a work in progess but he showed he's a determined fighter and not just the son of a legend running up an inflated record against hand-picked opposition. Nevertheless, this decision could have easily gone the other way if Chavez was not the son of a legend fighting in front of a wildly supportive crowd in Los Angeles.
Other big names in action included Mikkel Kessler, Zsolt Erdei, Edison Miranda, Vanes Martirosyan, Mikey Garcia and - in the "yes, they're still fighting" category - Christy Martin, Frans Botha and Johnny Tapia.
