Default Re: Where are the idiots who said Dirrell doen't deserve a shot at Froch???

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 should get 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...

Froch knows Dirrel beat him and he won't fight him again.

Dirrell who ran from froch for 12 rounds, embarrassed himself against AA, then clearly ducked Stevenson. He doesn't deserve a shot at anybody. He is a joke.

i like froch too, but this is a sham of a fight, the guy isnt even a super middleweight....i guess he will be for one fight and somehow be ranked high enough to warrant a world title shot. i dont mind shit fights, but but there is plenty of shit in frochs own weight division should he had wanted a gimmie....you also havent heard anyone saying how mack with "be drained" like Dawson , thats all these ****s talked about when Ward beat him

God I love the Dirrell fanboys!!! Even though he hasn't been relevant for 2 1/2 years......

"He should be super-middleweight lineal champion cause he has the best boxing skills EVER!!!"

Dirrell has fought fought like 1 1/2 ROUNDS in 2 1/2 years.

He doesn't deserve a championship fight, he was lucky that no one ahead of him was available/wanted to fight Stevenson for the #1 contender spot for Froch's belt....to which he accepted....and then promptly backed out of.

Dirrell hasn't actually been making much of a case for himself. Pretty much not fighting at all for 2 years is not going to put you i the drivers seat or let you make any demands. Now it may not be his fault he is in that position, but it certainly isn't Froch's fault.

As for Mack getting the chance, it is simply a stay busy fight for Froch, make some money while Bute tries to reset for the rematch. I don't see much of a problem with it. Or any at all for that matter.

Didnt Dirrell hurt froch in the 11th?, had froch take a few steps back if i remember correctly.

froch didnt hurt him once.

Mayweather would have a loss on his resume if he decided to travel to a champions back yard when he use to be on his bike.

dirrell outboxed Froch, won atleast 6 round, Froch couldnt land shit.

Dirrels a good fighter but he really doesnt have a fighter disposition and for that reason he probably shouldnt really fight at all....

Froch SD12 Dirrell.

You can say Dirrell deserved to win as much as you want, but the fact remains Froch got the nod and Dirrell has done nothing since.

Erm froch did hurt Dirrell, he knocked him into the ropes and flattened dirrells nose and gave him fat, blow job lips

Dirrell was bruised and bleeding while froch had nary a scratch (and froch always marks up, dirrells punches were not hitting and had no effect)
