Yes, and Froch won more rounds (well, i had it 6-6 and the point deduction gave it to Froch).

I respect Froch but he did not win that fight, did Dirrell fight ugly? Yes but he landed better shots and more shots and had Froch hurt in 10th round...

So, a fight on neutral turf is more than in order for a rematch.

Why? Since then Froch has gone on to great things whilst Dirrell has done **** all. He needs to earn a rematch by beating Kessler/Bute/Ward.

Froch is at the point in his career where he's chasing money fights. Dirrell is completely unknown.

Disgusting robbery. What did Froch do? I don't think he landed a punch that wasn't illegal.

Dirrell's been out of the ring too long to suggest he should be next in line for Frich. Whether one thinks he beat Froch or not, there's as many who think he lost. So, until he gets back in the ring, and makes himself a top contender, living on a 'loss' doesn't make one entirely deserving while these others face top guy after top guy. He's done entirely too little to suggest he belongs in the mix.

Wait for Dirrell to actually fight and beat a top 10 fighter again before making claims that Froch should rematch him outside of England.

Dirrell wanted to play around with Floyd and 50 and now his already stalling career is at a stand still. He needs to do ANYTHING before trying to come at Froch or even Abraham for that matter.

And I'm a Dirrell fan and believe that the only person from 160-175 that could beat Ward is him.

Dirrell earned a rematch when he fought Froch in Nottingham. Period. Now he has to beat Kessler or Ward for a Froch rematch when Froch didn't beat these guys? REALLY?

How long ago was that now? He can't live off a loss that occurred years ago, expecting to get handed a big fight after major inactivity. And Froch raised his stock since that fight, immensely. There are a ton of fighters closer to his level he can fight to seperate himself from the pack and MAKE himself a top player.

The fight was over 3 years ago.

Since then Froch has been in with Ward, Bute, Kessler, Abraham, Johnson and a fight around the corner with Mack.

In the same 3 years Dirrell has faced Abraham and Cunningham and doesn't even have an opponent lined up despite his last fight being nearly a year ago, just face it the guy is irrelevant and is wasting what should be his prime years.

If we'd only base our judgment on skills alone, Dirrell would be the first one in line to face any champ at 168.

But after 1 fight against an ordinary journeyman in 2 1/2 years, I don't think Dirrell deserves any favors coming his way.

He was given the chance to face Bute but wouldn't do it if he didn't have home advantage...

He was given the chance to face Stevenson for the mandatory spot within the IBF rankings, but refused for lack of time to prepare...

He didn't necessarily deserve these chances but he bluntly disregarded them. Froch doesn't owe him shit after all the tough fights he's been in.

Dirrell is easily the worst managed talent in boxing and they certainly don't deserve any freebies following the extremely poor judgment they've shown in the last 30 months or so...
