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?

It wasn't a televised fight but I'm just happy to see him fighting again. He's wasting his prime and his career with this inactive crap, and I really doubt he'd still be with 50 if he and Gamboa hadn't of took money upfront.

I don't feel sorry for Dirrell, he can do that all by himself when he looks back at his career and sees that he wasted big opportunities. I think he beat Froch and I think Abraham knew he had no way to win and HE found a way out of the fight. Like someone said, he aint beating down Direll's door for a rematch. If they were to rematch I say Andre whoops him even worse the 2nd time. Dirrell is just better then him.

I said long ago that if anyone could and would beat Ward, it would be Andre. He has the physical gifts to offset the craftiness of Ward, but at this point I hope they never fight because Andre only fights once every 2 yrs. At this point, I'd just be happy to see him win a title
