Anthony Dirrell: I'm Going After The Froch-Ward Winner
By Rick Reeno
Undefeated super middleweight contender Anthony Dirrell is planning to target the winner of the upcoming WBC/WBA unification between Carl Froch and Andre Ward, which takes place on December 17th at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. Dirrell (23-0, 20KOs) is the WBC's number one ranked contender to Froch's title. He plans to take a tuneup in November, but wants the Froch-Ward winner in 2012.
Anthony and his brother Andre Dirrell are close friends with Ward - but Anthony is not going to allow friendship to prevent a possible fight.
"I have a tuneup, I think I'll have one in November and then I'm going to go after the winner of Froch and Ward. [Me and Ward] are friends, but it's a business at the end of the day. He got to eat and I got to eat. We are just out there and doing what we love to do. I really think Ward is going to pull it off. Froch is going to bring his A-game, but Ward will come out victorious at the end," Dirrell told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=Trippy;11263230]He needs to get in line really. Kessler, Bute and Andre have more of a claim to fight the Super Six winner. I hope Andre comes back against Bute though, he'd clown him. Anthony needs to fight some Bika/Green type…Comment by Boxingtech718v2 on 10-07-2011
