Most boxing fans in the United States, Germany, Denmark, Britian and other parts of the world are very excited about Showtime's Super Six tournament, that features six of the best super middleweights in the world, including Mikkel Kessler, Carl Froch, Andre Dirrell, Jermain Taylor, Andre Ward and Arthur Abraham - all facing off under round robin rules.

One man who is not exactly excited by the tournament is WBC/WBO middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik. He told Youngstown scribe Joe Scalzo that he never wanted to be a part of the tournament and the money is not worth it. He also took a shot at Showtime when he told Scalzo that nobody watches the network and all of the big-time fighters are on HBO. He says the winner will jump over to HBO.

“Why would I be in that tournament when I’m a middleweight?” Pavlik said. “They never asked me and I never wanted to join. Let them beat each other up. Let them ruin their careers for peanuts."

"Those guys are fighting for peanuts. They’re going to burn their whole career and for what? Nobody watches Showtime. Trust me, when the winner of that tournament fights his next fight, it’ll be on HBO. I like HBO. I will fight for HBO. All the big-time fighters like Floyd Mayweather, [Manny] Pacquiao, [Miguel] Cotto, Shane Mosley, the Klitschkos — they all fight on HBO.”

Whoever ends up being the tournament winner, Pavlik told Scalzo that he would be more than happy to move up to fight them.

“Whoever the winner is,” Pavlik said, “I’ll kick his [butt].”

Pavlik needs to shut the f#ck up and try to gain some credibility back. He gets nothing from me until he cancels this shit fight with Mora. Has he already done that? He needs to be calling out Paul Williams and Williams needs to do the same when it comes to trying to get a fight with Pavlik. ...

:liar:[QUOTE=ListenUpWell]I'm starting to take a dislike to Pavlik. These fights are just what boxing/the fans need. Great match-ups and not for stupidly large ppv prices to determine who the best is. Pavlik is clearly too worried about his chances against the likes of Abraham, why slate these gu...

Kelly: It may be peanuts but I'm signing up for Showtime right before this starts. That's how good this is. If you were the biggest star on HBO - while fighting the likes of Marco A. Rubio and Gary Lockett - I would've canceled my subscription a long time ago.

Yo it is a damn shame cause I watched all the televised Pavs fights before his demolition of Taylor and let me tell you the kid had so so much talent. i say had cause he is a ruined fighter, not only at the hands of the great popkins. but because of the leeches around him. Guys like Pavlik bla...

He says he wouldn't want to be in the tourney 'cause he's a middleweight, so it'd be stupid to enter a SMW tourney... yet he goes on to say he wants to fight the winner.... at SMW.... Right...
