Super middleweight contender Anthony Dirrell (26-0-1, 22KOs) is ready to make good on his second opportunity to capture a championship. Last December he challenged WBC champion Sakio Bika (32-5-3) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The fight went to a majority draw and the experts were split on who actually won the contest.

Bika and Dirrell are going to fight for a second time on August 16th at a location to be determined.

"This fight has been on my mind since I heard the decision and I'm just real excited to get it," Dirrell said to The Grand Rapids Press. "I know I can beat him, I know I have what it takes and that's what it is. It just takes hard work and dedication to stay focused on the game plan."

"I could have done better the first fight, but I still think I won, it but this time it will convincible. I don't feel like he was hitting me with more shots than I was hitting him with."

Why is this bum being rewarded for such a pathetic effort with another title shot? He sh*t the bed last time out and was very lucky to get a draw. Degale's probably feeling like a pleb now.

I'm more concerned with Andre. His big time fights happened in 2009-2010. That was 3-4 years ago when he was a young 26 years old. Now he's 30 and has been quite inactive due to "undisclosed reasons". I wonder if his neurological issues have been creeping back up again or if he's simply lost a...

Where is Andre Dirrel??? I heard he signed with 50 cent but hasn't fought in 18 months...

Bika always brings it and Dirrell is a hell of a boxer/puncher. I like there first fight, so we hope we can get the same excitment for their rematch
