According to the article, Dirrell has been hurt in a motorcycle accident and has broken a leg and an arm. It looks that he will be out for about 6 months, and that's unfortunate, being the fact that he missed 2 years due to a serious illness.

Anyway, it looks that he is okay after his surgery...

Thoughts?

The Dirrell brothers have had the worst of luck lately. Well, let me rephrase that...Anthony Dirrell has had the worst of luck lately. As I mentioned, his illness kept him out of the ring about 2 years, then this shit happens. His brother pretty much made his own bed by faking an injury to avoid fighting his friend (Andre Ward).

Yeah those motorcycles are no jokes. I bought a mountain bike last weekend, and almost took myself out while trying to change a song on my iPod in mid motion...

Hell, who knows. I believe Chico had been drinking, if Im not mistaken. I remember them mentioning his blood alcohol level, and I dont know if it was over the limit or what. I guess the whole excitement of an adrenaline rush that comes with riding, usually exceeds a rider's sense of caution. Surely that's not the case with every rider, but damn...
