Anthony Dirrell Eyes Andre Ward Showdown In '12

By Ryan Burton

Boxingscene recently caught up with undefeated super middleweight Anthony Dirrell. The Flint, Michigan native takes on Renan St. Juste on December 2nd on the latest edition of ShoBox. 

The fight is a WBC eliminator to determine Carl Froch's mandatory challenger. Ward of course has his WBA title on the line when he faces Carl Froch on December 17th in the Super Six finals. 

Dirrell hopes to make the jump from prospect status to contender status after his upcoming fight. He told Boxingscene that regardless of the outcome of the Ward-Froch fight that he hopes to enjoy a big 2012 campaign. 

"2012 is going to be my year. In 2012 I will be fighting for a world title." 

Dirrell's trainer Leon Lawson shares his fighter's sentiments and believes that a fight against Ward is imminent. 

"Its an eliminator to face Ward [should he beat Froch] so we expect to fight him.  Anthony is ready for a title shot," said Lawson.

2012 will be a great year for both Andre and Anthony Dirrell. It's not too late to jump on the bandwagon.
