Bika: I Have To Knock Dirrell Out, No Judges Needed

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBC super middleweight world champion Sakio "The Scorpion" Bika (32-5-3, 21 KOs) is taking no chances in his grudge rematch against unbeaten Anthony "The Dog'' Dirrell (26-0-1, 22 KOs). Last December they fought to a twelve round draw. Bika believes he did more than enough to win the fight, but Dirrell does as well.

"He ran around the first fight and I should have won. It's nothing new for me to fight in the States and I just have to go there and knock him out so there's no need for a judges' decision. I don't need to sit here and talk much. He's doing enough of that for the both of us. We'll see who's doing the talking after I get through with him on Saturday night," Bika said.

The Showtime televised rematch takes place on Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.
