Andre Dirrell Hopes Haymon Puts Him Back in The Mix

By Edward Chaykovsky

Super middleweight contender Andre Dirrell (21-1, 14 KOs), inactive since February 2013, has finally parted way with promoter/rapper 50 Cent and rejoined the most influential adviser in boxing, Al Haymon. Dirrell returns on Augusr 1 at Little Creek Casino Resort in Shelton, Washington on ESPN2's Friday Night Fights.

Dirrell, 30-years-old, had left Haymon in 2012 to join 50 Cent's SMS Promotions, which never took off.

"We didn't end on bad terms," Dirrell said to mlive.com. "I always kept a respectful tone with him but the main thing is that my situation was a little too unique with 50 Cent, especially the way he worked his way into the game he made it pretty much hard on himself. I believe he was pretty much being blackballed and the problems that 50 Cent is having trying to get in the game, I pretty much didn't have time for it," he added.

"I'm trying to get back on my feet as well, so I decided to part ways that way and I did it in a way to stay on good terms."

Before his prolonged absence Dirrell would have beaten Ward easy. He was no doubt the best fighter at 168lbs and made Froch look like a mug. Now with this absence we have to see if he still has those lighting…
