Sad, cuz he seemed like he had a lot of potential. I was really looking forward to a fight between him and Ward in the Super Six tournament.

That's one of the most blatant ducks in recent memory. Dirrell wanted nothing to do with Ward.

I don't approve of fouling, but I have to admit that this was funny. Froch was so fed up in this fight that he just started getting rough, punching Dirrell in the clinch and pushing him around.

Yep that 4th round Dirrell was making a fool of him. Punching him, Froch was whiffing punches, and Dirrell was laughing at him.



Then Froch thought what would Benn and Hatton do?

Dirrell's best win is by getting KTFO! He kept holding Froch, except from that four seconds clip.

Dirrell is all talk no action now. Let's call it quit and have a thread about when he actually fight.

He is waisting his carreer, not by lack of talent, but by lack of a brain.

Says it all when the best 'win' of Dirrell's career (of almost a decade) is a DQ against Abraham when Abraham was about two minutes from taking Dirrell's head clean off (legitimately). Man's a fraud.

Seriously speaking, Dirrel's main problem is that he doesn't have gas for 12 rounds on the highest level. He is top for 6 rounds at the beginning or towards the end of the fight, for the rest of the time things go downhill for him. In that time he clinches, slips all the time, playacts and cries foul all the time.

That cost him the Froch fight. In the Abraham fight he dominated 7 rounds and than things went downhill again. Without his "slips" and his ref he would have eventually been knocked out in the 9th round. Abraham's foul was the result of frustration because he realized he was about to get shafted and it presented an easy way out for Dirrell.

The guy won't make it to the top in boxing. He lacks stamina and "heart".

So Abraham fouled Dirrell because he was gonna get robbed.


You're a moron. And from Germany which makes it ironic that you would talk about shafts.

Abraham was way down on the cards, true, but how the ref could've justified disallowing the clear KD AA scored is a mystery. Dirrell's eyes were glassy when he rose and from that point he was desperate for the final bell. No heart, no chin, and now it seems no career.

I believe I had Dirrell winning 114-113 or something.. But honestly I wasn't surprised, Dirrell was far from convincing, it was an overall sloppy performance by Froch, but Dirrell gave away rounds by holding and not fighting.. Ugly fight where neither man was really dominant.
