Everytime i come across Andre Dirrell i often find myself feeling sorry. Dirrell is one of the most gifted and athletic boxers i have ever seen inside that squared circle. I mean his skills, reflexes, agility, accuracy, stamina, POWER, speed (ESPECIALLY for a super middle weight). Dirrell has the ENTIRE package. And to see Carl Froch in the position he is in now in big money fights as a current IBF world champion. Crowned with the honor of testing his skills against Andre Ward, exposing Lucian Bute, being a 2x world champion, and now having a big money fight with Mikkel Kessler. I just think to myself imagine if there was never a robbery in Nottingham in that Froch -Dirrell fight. Dirrell could've been in the position that Froch is in now, or better yet the position that Ward is in right now as the #2 P4P figther in the world. To see Dirrell now with no big money fights- actually no fights AT ALL is disheartening. All that talent, all those skills, all that potential not given the opportunity to be showcased to the fans. All that hardwork, those late nights and early mornings putting in work, and nothing to show for it...
What do you guys think of Andre Dirrell and his situation?

I hear you, but he apparently got a lucrative deal from SMS (or should I say Mini-TR ). He was in the ring two weekends ago and won nicely.
Hopefully that's the beginning of more activity for him.

I like Dirrell and expect more from him as long as SMS don't flop.

Who did he fight and where? It must have been a non televised fight.
