Dirrel is decent and would give anyone problems but he does not stand out as the best fighter in the division.He is in with a chance against the top guys but he has been inactive and needs to have some fights before he makes a title challenge.

i dont know why people give Dirrell so much shit for the Abraham fight. that was an extreme foul blow and no question Abraham deserved to lose by dq.
i do think Direll may have shown a lack of desire against Froch, ran a bit too much but i still thought he outboxed Froch.
Direll is very good

Ok. What about him making up an injury not to fight Ward?

Dirrell would cause him a few problems in spots with his athleticism and because he's faster (not quicker btw and there IS a difference). But Ward would adjust to his speed of foot and hand and fold him up and bully him. Dirrell is the type who doesn't finish off his meal. I do think he has the potential to give Ward more puzzles then anyone at 168, apart from the Canadian Muffin though. Fighters like Ward you need a serious alround fight game or incredible twitch fibres to beat. Dirrell has very fast twitch fibres and his athleticism would make this VERY intriguing. Plus they know eachother really well (that would probabily end up helping Ward though).

Dirrell really is sitting down on his punches now a lot more than he did two years ago last time he fought. It could be that heís now matured fully and has gotten his man strength and is just now starting to show it.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Dirrell knocked Cunningham down with a heat seeking left hand in the 2nd after having hurt him with the biggest left hand Iíve seen someone throw before moments earlier. To Cunninghamís credit, he took the first left hand, but he was in bad shape and was holding on. The referee was so concerned with Cunninghamís plight after getting hit that he stopped the action and asked him if he was okay. I canít see Froch, Bute or Kessler taking the big left hand that Dirrell landed on Cunninghamís chin early in the 2nd without dropping for the 10 count. Cunningham had a better chin than those guys and he needs to be complimented for some of the shots he took from Dirrell.

NO WAY! That bellend Guilford is still posting on that site? hahah what a joke. He's the reason why I refuse to read that sight. The guys a windup merchant. No way he believes some of the sh*t he spouts is true. All his posts are purely for a reaction! JOKE SITE

Gilfoid loves to ride Dirrel's black c_ _ K and this thread starter loves trolling . Happy New Year !!!!!!!!!

Speed is in the body. Quickness is in the mind. Dirrell is faster in the body, but Ward is quicker in the mind.
