Johnson joins Super Six, to fight Nov. 6 in Vegas
Former light heavyweight champion Glen Johnson has been added to the Super Six World Boxing Classic after Mikkel Kessler withdrew due to injury.
Johnson will meet Allan Green in the third round of the modified round-robin tournament on Nov. 6 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The fight has been added to a Showtime doubleheader that will feature Juan Manuel Lopez against Rafael Marquez in the main event.
The other two Super Six matchups will be Nov. 27, when Andre Ward faces Andre Dirrell at a venue in the United States and Arthur Abraham faces Carl Froch in Helsinki, Finland.
The four fighters with the most points, earned based on the outcome of three group stage fights, will meet in seeded semifinals early next year.
