Grazing punch to the jaw, not thrown with full force & leverage. Head injury is possible, taking it ok is also possible. Who are you, some kind of x-ray vision doctor that telepathically measures newtons on punches thrown you see on tv, with Dirrell's cranium specifics in a file in front of you? STFU.
Dirrell is extremely talented. Had he shown up to exchange with Froch instead of maintaining a low workrate while on his bike, the judges would have given it to him. This wasn't an Alexander-Kotelnik type of robbery, this was a close fight where the hometown aggressor was outlanded by a slickster who refused to engage most of the time. The judges' cards were understandable to an extent.
It seems Dirrell still believes Fort Knox should be handed it him. Instead of re-climbing up the ranks by beating gatekeepers and aiming to school a few top 10's in undercard fights, his ass stays home. He says he "trains", yeah for what?! Same fool who thought he could be Mayweather and promote himself at this stage of his career.
