BoxingScene.com recently spoke with super middleweight contender Anthony Dirrell (24-0, 21KOs) who was recently ordered to face Nikola Sjekloca for the vacant WBC 168 pound title. Andre Ward was recently stripped by the WBC and made the champion in recess.

When the name of WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (45-0-1, 31KOs) came up, Dirrell held nothing back, advising the son of the legend to stay put at 160 pounds.

"I would kill him. He's nothing like his pops. No disrespect. I'd kill him. He likes to fight on the inside. I would tear him up," stated a confident Dirrell. "I think he would do alright but really he should stay at middleweight. He don't want to come up here with the big dogs. He don't want to come up here and get some L's."

The Flint, Michigan native does however think that Sergio Martinez would be successful in the super middleweight division. He thinks that Martinez would be able to bring up his speed and boxing ability that have allowed him to dominate the middleweight division.

"Martinez is very fast. He's a hell of a boxer. I think he would do good. He comes to win every time and that's what I like about him," Dirrell concluded.

I love hoe Anthony said I would kill him, no disrespect, he(Chavez jr.) is nothing like his father. Dirrell would be too talented, too strong, and just plain bust through Chavez's leaky defense.

[QUOTE=Check]Okay, but what about Anthony?[/QUOTE] Anthony, Andre. Do you think JCC JR gives a damn? He could beat them both on the same night without breaking a sweat.

Yawn. This is all pointless talk. Chavez isn't even going to get past Lee :popcorn:
