Default Andre Dirrell = 168 lb Zab Judah

Great physical gifts, mentally weak.

it's too early to tell, he arguably beat Froch & would've UD'd Abraham before the dirty punch. His inactivity is the worst part. I know he's a better boxer than an actor

he'll never be on Zab's level or accomplish what Zab has. people like to focus too much on the negative side of Zab's career. Zab is a legend.

Zab has had some semblance of success in his career. Much moreso than Dirrell has and will ever have, to be honest.

Fair points, perhaps I should say he's a poor man's version of a 168 lb Zab Judah.

It boggles my mind how a guy this talented is wasting his prime years away doing nothing. He could be literally throwing away millions of dollars. Where is the urge to get that money and help out his family? He's the direct opposite of a Ward or Bradley.

Unfair IMO. He only "panicked" once when slipping against Abraham, and there's no reason for people to suspect Dirrell of faking it unless they find satisfaction in believing he is. You can knock him for his inactivity, but that's not any sort of Judah-esque lack of resolve in the heat of battle.

I'm a big time Zab critic on here, but at least Zab Judah fights the best and gets in there.

Andre Dirrell is someone I've been admiring, but I've found his mental foundation is not there, I really don't think he's a fighter at heart.

i have a hunch that Andre Dirrell will become a factor at 168 once Ward moves up

Andre is much more skilled than Judah, IMO.

Weird that he ended up much less accomplished. Ah well, weird sport as it is.
