But then again, he was supposed to fight in December. Never got an opponent though and of course major networks didn't want him.

So he's saying January 19th...but there's no opponent named yet. And obviously, HBO is running there triple header on that date. So, maybe he fights an unknown again on Wealth TV? Who knows.

Inactivity is the greatest sin in boxing

Very much so. If he doesn't pick up that January fight it will be basically 1.5 rounds in 3 years.

And I'm not sure how the feelings were on the split with Haymon.

That's 2 different forms of career suicide in one career.

Dirrel obviously knows he has all the leverage to negotiate with anybody at 168. I can't believe he still refusing fight. Keep on refusing them, you might wake up and be 40 eventually.

Seriously, Dirrell is just stupid. Let say Ward would like to fight him, listened to me Dirrell, to negotiate, you should say : well, I would like to fight against those euro champion instead. Then you have some leverage.
