Abraham vs Dirrell: Andre Says Arthur 'Will Be Confused'

By Mark Vester

Super middleweight Andre Dirrell plans to confuse Arthur Abraham this Saturday night with a combination of switch-hit boxing and constant movement. Dirrell will have thousands of fans on his side at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan as he tries to beat the undefeated Super Six tournament leader.

Dirrell doesn't think Abraham will be able to reach him with power shots.

"Abraham's arms are too short. He can't box. I going to give him his first defeat. The 20,000 fans at Joe Louis Arena will be pushing me, my 30-member family will be there. And there will be millions who are going to watch me win on TV," Dirrell told BILD. "I am lightning quick, I dance like Muhammad Ali and change my looks constantly. So I'm going to confuse Abraham."

Dirrell lost a close points decision to WBC champion Carl Froch in the first stage of fights in the Super Six. He doesn't see it as a loss.

"Anyone who saw the fight knows that I had won. I was cheated from the rewards of my work. This time it will be different. 20,000 boxing fans and millions of TV sets will see me win," Dirrell said.

[QUOTE=Decypher;7878681]But Taylor NEVER really troubled Abraham at all in that time. Taylor gave problems to both Froch and Pavlik which he couldn't do to Abraham. Taylor only ever threatened to outbox Abraham in terms of work-rate maybe. I agree that…
