Giving the recent rash of injuries and withdrawals, this episode was quite insightful regarding the latest information on tournament newcomer Glen Johnson, Andre Dirrell’s post-concussion issues, and Carl Froch vs. Arthur Abraham.

When you watch this, it becomes a wonder how these guys have been able to keep this tournament going. The contract issues and injuries have caused a strain on everyone from the promoters and network executives, to the fighters themselves.

Regarding its TV appeal, Showtime’s 360 Fight Camp holds a storyline advantage over HBO’s 24/7 by the fact they have so many fighters to advance storylines on. Other notable points of interest:
