The single most overrated fighter in American history.

His opponent was TERRIBLE yet still went the distance.

The change in career, becoming 50's number 1 groupie was always going to affect his boxing ability so you cant be too hard on the guy.

MCALLEN, TEXAS – Flint boxer Andre Dirrell returned to the ring after a 13-month layoff to win in dominating fashion.

Dirrell won a lopsided 10-round unanimous decision over Michael Gbenga at the Convention Center in McAllen, Texas on Saturday, Feb. 2. The final judges' scores were: 100-87, 100-87, and 100-88.

"The ring rust is gone," Dirrell said after the win. "I'm feeling great; I'm in tip top shape."

Dirrell (21-1, 14 KO's) was originally scheduled to face Milton Nunez but things changed at the last minute.

According to boxingnews24.com, Dirrell knocked Gbenga down with a beautiful right uppercut in the 9th, and had him staggering around.

"I could hit him flush at any one point so that kind of steered me away from using my jab and it was a brawl," Dirrell explained. "I was letting loose on him and trying to get him out of there but I just couldn't. I switched up on him, showed out and it went 10 rounds."

Floyd Mayweather Sr. worked closely with Dirrell for the full camp leading up to the bout but didn't appear in his corner for the actual fight. Dirrell confirmed that he and Mayweather Sr. decided to end their working relationship after the legendary trainer decided to work with another fighter on the same date. Dirrell's grandfather and head coach Leon "Bumper" Lawson in addition to Rodney Crisler assisted him in his corner.

Dirrell, 29, is currently in negotiations to fight again in March. Rowland Bryant will likely be his next opponent.

"We're going to get it done," Dirrell said. "We're aiming for a championship this year and I believe we can do it."

It went 10 rounds because Dirrell couldn't punch his way out of a paper bag.
