Froch: Dirrell looks gaunt

Carl “The Cobra” Froch and Andre “The Matrix” Dirrell will weigh in ahead of this Saturday’s Super Six World Boxing Classic showdown in the historic setting of Nottingham’s famous Old Market Square at 5pm on Friday. As always, Froch is confident that he will make the weight without any difficulty but he believes his Dirrell may be struggling to shift those last few pounds. “My weights down, I was already a pound inside the 12 stone limit when I woke up yesterday morning so that won’t be a problem,” said the WBC super middleweight champion. “I’m eating good food and I’m feeling very strong. Dirrell’s quite tall for a super middle at 6 foot 1 so I think he probably struggles a bit to get down to 12 stone. From what I’ve seen of him since he arrived in the U.K. he looks a bit like a boiled chicken the way his cheeks are sucked in. He looks quite gaunt so maybe he’s struggling with the weight because when I met him in New York a few months back to launch the Super Six tournament he looked a lot fuller and healthier. He looks a lot different now so I think he has to work very, very hard to get that weight down and I’m sure travelling from the States at the weekend won’t have helped either.”
