To be fair


Tony Dirrel suffered from a cancer, and came back strong from it. He was positioning himself to make a run at Ward, and he definitely wasn't turning coat form Ward, but got himself hurt in a bad bike wreck, but we he should/was supposed to been allowed to resume training last month.

There is some fair criticism concerning his career choices, and maybe his style of moving in the ring that isn't to people's liking.

But those who claim he faked the Abraham injury are merely conjecturing with no possible way of knowing what happened. They're making up their minds based on their feelings towards him and don't give him any respect, refusing to acknowledge it's possible that a kneeling man with his chin in the air can be adversely affected by another big, powerful man clocking him straight on the face.

It is not because Dirrell is being laughed at that he is being hated.

What do you mean maybe Andre Ward? Bute would beat him. Ward would beat him. Froch would beat him. His own brother would beat him. Taylor might be shot but I think Dirrell is currently on the same level.

Dirrell hasn't been fighting just like Taylor hasn't been fighting but Taylor is a former champ. Dirrell has never been champ and dropped out of the super 6. Maybe he should be fighting Allan Green.

Anthony Dirrell is the brother to watch. He's actually higher ranked and more skilled.

It was a questionable excuse.. And Dirrell haven't done that much in the ring, Abraham was dominated atleast as bad against Froch and Ward

2) We don't know if he faked when Arthur Abraham hit him when he was down. Maybe, maybe not. If he didn't fake, then **** all of you, but if he did, then forgive him? Both he and Arthur Abraham fought a good match, knocking each other down, and it was a sad ending, but it should definetely not take anything away from Dirrell. If you can fight a good fight against AA and even knock him down, then you deserve respect.

I agree with this, Dirrell does get unfair blame for faking.

3) Let me tell you all, I'm a huge fan of Carl Froch. The guy is a true warrior and I really think he would have a good chance at winning if he and Dirrell fought each other again. But fact is - he simply didn't win last time. Yes, Dirrell jumped around and dodged a lot, but since when has strategy become a crime in boxing? He outlanded Froch and Froch cheated a lot.

Dirrell wasn't robbed, I think Dirrell's fans are exaggerating this.. I had Dirrell winning 114-113 I believe, but he spoiled it too much and was inconsistent the entire night.

Andre Dirrell doesn't deserve the hatered he gets. He's one of the best boxers in the world and you all know it. Let's be fair, the guy may be kinda feminine, but he could kick all of our manly asses if he wanted.
He may be one of the most athletic boxers in the world, but not one the BEST boxers in the world, he is kind of annoying and he is inactive.. And overall he is just easy to make fun of.
And yes he could kick all of our asses, but so could janitor's with 30-25 records

Dirrell is only hated by Euros because they were shocked to find out that their fighters are slow and athletic and got completely schooled by 2 prospects.

Most Americans are eager for Dirrell to return to the ring and give Ward some competition that he will never get from the average unathletic slow plodding euros

Or maybe I just like fighters who are active and tries make a career out of their talents?
