There was a full house at the Hilton Oakland Airport for Friday’s Super Six World Boxing Classic weigh in, just one day before hometown and tournament favorite Andre Ward defends his WBA belt against fellow American Allan Green on Saturday, June 19 live on Showtime at 10 p.m., ET/PT, delayed on the west coast.

Ward weighed in at 167.75 pounds, can lock up a semifinal berth in the tournament via decision (two points) or knockout (three points) over Green.

Green scaled 166 pounds and is making his debut in the tournament replacing Jermain Taylor and enters the Super Six World Boxing Classic with zero points.

The underdog Green could shock most fans and experts and tie for first place in the tournament with a KO victory over Ward heading into the final Group Stage bouts before the semifinals.

Ward, the 2004 U.S. Olympic Gold Medalist, is hoping to extend the victory streak of hometown fighters in the Super Six World Boxing Classic at Oakland’s Oracle Arena on Saturday. So far, no fighter has lost a bout on his home turf.

The inaugural Super Six World Boxing Classic is a ground-breaking, six-fighter tournament from Showtime Sports featuring the class of the super middleweight division.

The field is comprised of world renowned fighters competing in a points-based round-robin tournament for the inaugural Super Six World Boxing Classic Cup.
