50 put him in his clip because he knows Andre is a good actor, that's it.

A focused non-sissy version of Dirrell gives Ward hell.

Lol one judge had it right.

Went overseas and basically did the old money style,

Froch got a gift that night, he was lucky it was in his hometown.

I respect bradley and dirrell, came england, bradley got his title, ashame dirrell got robbed

I believe Dirrell won the fight, but he has no one to blame but himself for not making sure he won it.

He is a fighter, so crying, whinging, turning your back, and falling over constantly will not impress judges or anyone else bar a few fanboys

If it wasnt for all that bullsh*t more people would be shouting for a rematch

Why dont you post the clip when he disgracefully feigned injury to get the fight stopped? The guy is talented but a joke im afraid.

Andre has great talent and tremendous skills but he's not going to be a cross over talent by making guest appearances in 50's music videos. It can't hurt! But the only way Dirrell crosses over is to fight, dominate and stay active. Half of the responsibility lies with Curtis...to keep him active and to get the fights Andre needs....the other half is all on Andre...to train, win and dominate. Easier said than done.

Nothing wrong with scoring Froch vs Dirrell for Dirrell but how is it even remotely surprising that the judges awarded close rounds to Froch on aggression.

For me Dirrell did enough but got on his bike far too much for anything to be decisive.

A 12 rnd SD is hardly a "slaying" for either fighter.

I'm not a fan of Froch but I admit it looks like he's peeking right now while rust is starting to cover Dirrell.

If a rematch were to happen I'd bet on Froch by late rnd TKO

Anyone that believed Dirrell faked getting knocked out is an abject buffoon.


However there is no doubt he pulled out of the Ward fight for more money an it cost him.

Dirrell would beat Froch easier than he did the first time. Dont be fooled by slow footed no head movement Bute's performance.

I hope you're right man. I agree about Bute

Dirrell has talent and skill, and he was outboxing Froch, but for some reason his performance felt very negative. It was quite a strange fight, because even though Dirrell looked more polished and showed off better boxing technique, it also felt like he was mentally crumbling at the same time. He seemed really uncomfortable with Froch's pressure and rough tactics, and as the fight went on it felt like Froch was winning even though he wasn't landing many punches. Odd fight.
