Allan Green Replaces Jermain Taylor In Super Six

Things worked out pretty well for Allan Green. With Jermain Taylor announcing his departure from Showtime’s Super Six World Boxing Classic last week, a spot was suddenly open in the tournament. Allan Green was rumored to be in line for the opening, provided he defeat Sakio Bika in February. The Green-Bika fight is now scrapped and Allan Green has been announced as the sixth man in the Super Six tournament.

Allan Green not only gains entrance into the high-profile tournament, but his first fight will be for the WBA super middleweight title held by Andre Ward. The fight is scheduled for April 17 in Oakland, CA.
