Even if the winner doesn't get to fight Floyd the event would be amazing. The Super Six did take time but the 147 division is in the same predicament the 168 division was pre the Super Six. You had a bunch of solid fighters with no clear cut number 1 guy. Bute, Abraham, Froch, Dirrell, Ward, etc were all solid fighters with each claiming the alpha dog status in the division. The tournament fixed all those problems. Assuming Floyd retires in September you have the same problem the 168 division had. Khan, Thurman, Porter, Brook, Broner, Bradley, Garcia, Provonokov, Lucas, etc are all interchangeable with none of those guys really setting themselves apart not to mention the mutual ducking going on by most of the aforementioned fighters in an attempt to get a Mayweather fight.
