Bika: I Hope I Don't Have To Chase Dirrell Down

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBC super middleweight champion Sakio Bika (32-5-3, 21KOs) is hoping that his mandatory challenger, Anthony Dirrell (26-0-1, 22KOs), decides to stand and trade on Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

The fight will be a rematch of last December's contest, where the two boxers went to a twelve round draw. The fight, which took place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, left both fighters with the belief of victory.

Im not going to change too much. Im coming out to fight. I dont want to run around and chase him. Im going to show Anthony that Im ready to do exactly what Ive always done: to make people happy to see me fight. If he wants to take my belt off of me he better come prepared, Bika said.

Bika has not switched around much of anything in training camp. He plans to stick to his game plan and believes that above everything else will bring home the victory.

"The main thing I have to do is keep working hard every day and getting my rest when I can. Ill be ready for Anthony. I always come to fight. Im sure that Im doing everything the way that Im supposed to. And Im training hard with my team so that I can defend and retain my belt, Bika said.

Kevin [Cunningham] and I always do the same thing. He keeps me positive, focused and working very hard to get ready for Aug.16.

I hate when fighters make these statements. You don't get to choose how you want your opponent to fight. Boxing is about making adjustments and executing.

can't c dirrell in a slugfest w/Bika so it probably will be a sleeper...I hope Bika wins as he tries, in any way, to make it a fight...

man, i hope dirrell is the one to finally put this guy to sleep. cant stand him and his ugly cheating style. he should have been DQ'ed three times over and lost the decision and he still left with his belt. so he really shouldnt be running his mouth right now, especially considering the beating d...
