Yet Khan's resume and legacy shits all over Dirrell's.

In fact most fighters do on the World stage.

Dirrell is a ***** ass mental midget. He quit and that's evident, besides if you are continously ducking that low, it's your own damn fault if you get clipped with some shots in the back of the head. With that being said, he did not get hit hard enough to act like such a bitch.

Talent only gets you so far though and I see 50 and his "promoting" as a ****ing side show. Kind of like if Bob Arum started making mixtapes. Dirrell has signed up to be part of the show so let's see what happens....
That's important. I see what you mean. Andre has to keep active in order to make the most out of his talents. He's at this time in his physical prime but he's had only a taste of ELITE level experience that he needs to progress to that next level.

I would agree with you on your assertion about Dirrell having more talent, athletic ability and skills than Ward. The difference is Ward is mentally strong and operates with a higher ring IQ. Dirrell could be every bit as good as Ward, if not better if he can mature as a boxer and apply his craft consistently. He's been shelved for a while and needs to knock some of that rust off.

I disagree with how you view 50 as a promoter. He's got the business savvy and experience to adapt, adjust and conform in order to make his business ventures successful. His drama with Floyd and how it's been plastered all over the web definitely made it a circus....but the things he's done in the short amount of time as a "Boxing Promoter" is incredible.

Look...he's signed 3 or 4 blue chip fighters...he's gotten a couple of his fighters on high profile PPV events...he's attained one of the best boxing trainers in the game and has a world class gym operating in boxing's main town, Las Vegas. He's done all this in UNDER 6 months. 50's serious about this boxing promoting thing. If he fails....it won't be from a lack of effort that's for sure.

If he succeeds.......A lot of boxing promoters are going to be on notice because Fif is young blood in a world of Old money. We could see Golden Boy, 50, PAC, Cotto and Floyd as the new boxing promoters for the future.

Most ppl have lives to lead rather than spending an hour on gif soup uploading half a dozen GIFS! How racist is michigan warrior man! Im guesing he's on welfare though...

Try this:

I like how Froch eventually gets so annoyed by the clinching that he just starts fighting in the clinch, during round 7. When he does that Dirrell doesn't seem to know what to do, and can't really protect himself on the inside. While he's complaining to the referee Froch is roughing him up and scoring. I actually like that -- most fighters get clinched and just stop fighting, waiting for the referee to break them up. Froch is one of the few I've seen that just got fed up and started throwing any short, scrappy punches he could from that position, just to warn Dirrell away from holding him. He should have done that from the beginning of the fight, because it works better for him than trying to box on the outside with Dirrell. He shouldn't have hit him behind the head, though -- that's a dangerous foul.
