I found this fight on youtube. Dirrell looked good especially being laid off for a long time. He fought light heavy with heavy hands. He took his punches pretty well. It looks like he can make some noise in the division if he can stay active

Dirrell really needed those rounds, but its hard to gushes where he is at against a guy like that. At this point I wouldn't be in a hurry to match him against Froch or ward.

He looked good. especially with a guy that was pretty active but like you said time will tell. I think his skill set is top two in division, behind ward. It was good to see him put that work in.

I think he is one of the best in the division. I think if he can stay active he should be straight.

So do I, just off pure talent alone he is no easy match for any fighter across from his in the ring. He just haves to get off this inactive bullshit and puts some fights together

The Dirrell brothers' relevance is dropping like shit after a chili cook-off. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/no2.gif)

These dudes went from top contenders in line for a title shot, to fighting on Hispanic networks against no-hopers. I believe Anthony got into a motorcycle accident last January, but hell, before that, he had got caught up in that robbery crap, then that illness kept him out of the ring for a couple of years.

That "injury" at the end of the Abraham fight, along with refusing to fight his friend Ward, pretty much sealed the deal for Andre. Dude needs to make some moves quickly.
