Default Andre Dirrell is Vastly Overrated

He's an average fighter. That is all. When up against real competition he shows his true colors and gets scared. It's perfectly fine to be scared, but boxing isn't the right sport for a scared fighter.

Despite Froch's girly lowblows and cheapshots on Dirrell, I still gave the fight to Froch as he was visibly trying to fight and Dirrell was content on landing a jab and literally running or holding. Dirrell has zero pop in his punches and a very questionable chin with a very obvious ****-poor heart. It's hard to support him, honestly.

For the fanboys out there: Ward kills Dirrell

Oh so Froch gets points for trying to fight now, doesn't matter that he was getting beaten in a boxing match.
Dirrell clearly hurt dirty Froch as well and I believe that Dirrell is the only fighter who has the potential to beat Ward around the weight.

How was a guy with "zero pop in his punches" able to have Froch (a guy with a pretty good chin) doing the chicken dance, and able to have Abraham (the guy with the best chin in the sport IMO) on his ass (even if he was off balance it was a legitimate knockdown)?

I suppose you don't think Khan did the chicken dance against Maidana, either.

Nah, Direll is a good fighter, he shouldve got the decision against Froch, despite his in ring antics. But the fact that he loss a SD, should show that he is not overrated... the same with dominating Abraham. He isn't overrated in terms of physical ability and skill. No one makes him out to be a god, it makes perfect sense why some say he could give Ward fits, based on his physical ability and skill - but of course he punked out of that.

His style is not pleasant but his skills are phenomenal. He is not easy to root for and his inactivity and fighting lower ranked opponents now is hurting him but how can one say he is overrated? Its not like he is ranked p4p top 10 even though his skills are p4p.

I don't see these "phenominal skills"

I do see Phenominal athleticism, but that's about it
