Super middleweight Andre Dirrell (19-1, 13KOs) makes his return on Friday night against Darryl Cunningham (24-2, 10KOs) at the Morongo Casino Resort and Spa in Cabazon, California.

[QUOTE=BoxingGenius27]1. AA looked like a bum at super middleweight because he lost to the top in the division? 2. How can you advocate Bute fighting Glenn Johnson the slightest bit, whom he admitted to being his top opponent at the time?[/QUOTE] Johnson is a tough fight to anyone in the di...
