2006 CJ SuperFight 1
(≃ $18,291 USD)
The 2006-2007 CJ SuperFight was created by CJ Media (the sponsor behind CJ Entus) as a series of show matches. The series were broadcast live over a number of their channels: XTM (action movie channel), Xsports (sports), Mnet (music MTV-style); and internet streams: GOMTV (online streaming broadcasting) and Naver (internet portal broadcasting). CJ Media created elaborate introductions for players and featured lucrative prize pools, among the highest for a one-day event. Each broadcast also included First Person views of each participant and some matches branched into popular games aside from StarCraft.
The SuperFight show matches were held once approximately every month from October 2006 to May 2007. These show matches featured invited progamer with themes, such as New & Old and the Race Wars.
With BoxeR departing for military service, CJ Media organized the first SuperFight to provide the fans an opportunity to bid him farewell. The show-match pitted the Emperor of Terran against two prominent Zerg players: sAviOr, the strongest Zerg player of that era in 2006, and YellOw, BoxeR's long-time rival.
