Super Six undergoes more re-shuffling

Showtime's Super Six World Boxing Classic, which has been beset by injuries, is being shuffled around once again.

ESPN reported Tuesday that Sakio Bika (28-4-2, 19 KOs) is likely to take on Andre Ward (22-0, 13 KOs)November 27. Ward was set to take on Andre Dirrell, but Dirrell put out of the fight last week citing neurological problems he said he developed after his fight with Arthur Abraham.

Dirrell was the third fighter to pull out of the tourament. Jermain Taylor and Mikkel Kessler both pulled out. No venue has been set, but it's likely to be somewhere in the vicinity of Ward's hometown in Oakland, Ca.

It also hasn't been determined if the fight will be a tournament bout. Fighters are allowed to fight outside of tournament as long as Showtime signs off on it.
