Dirrell: I’ll be smarter

By Rob Hough

Andre Dirrell (18-1, 13 KOs) admitted that Carl Froch’s tactics affected him in their fight, which Froch won by split-decision, and promised to be more disciplined against Arthur Abraham (31-0, 25 KOs) on March 27 in their Super Six World Boxing Classic Stage 2 match-up.

“Froch using dirty tactics, that threw me off my game plan,” Dirrell said Thursday on a teleconference to discuss the fight, which was moved from March 6, and from Palm Springs, Calif., to Detroit, Mich., because Dirrell tweaked his back. “I clinched too much. I could have fought more inside and not complained to the referee. I’ll be more focused and more determined this time. I’m training a lot smarter.” (more…)

More on Sturm vs. Universum

By Wolfgang Schiffbauer

Today, WBA middleweight champion Felix Sturm and his lawyers declared that a bout with mandatory challenger Gennady Golovkin will not happen under any possible circumstances. As a result, Universum withdraw their request for a restraining order against any Sturm-Golovkin fight without Universum’s involvement. According to Sturm’s management and lawyer Sebastian Cording, who successfully got the Klitschko brothers out of a Universum contract, those proceedings are a partial win for Sturm in his legal battle with Universum because Universum withdrew their motion instead of having the court discharge it after Sturm testified. “If you withdraw”, Cording said in a press release, “it is the same as a loss in court. This is a partial victory for Sturm.”

“Their [Universum’s] press release was just a try to make things look good for them”, Sturm said to Fightnews.com over the phone. “However, it was a successful day for us. Now I can start to prepare for my next fight without worrying. I am excited about my upcoming title defense.” No date or an opponent has been set for Sturm’s return to ring as of now.

So later this year, UFC President Dana White is prepared to give Toney his shot, signing the boxing superstar to a multi-fight contract this week to compete in the UFC.

Now he’s got every intention of matching that success in MMA, and I think he’s got the right attitude – let’s see if he can do it.” (more…)
