This coming Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California - WBC super middleweight world champion Sakio "The Scorpion" Bika (32-5-3, 21 KOs), of Sydney, Australia, will risk his 168-pound belt in a rematch against unbeaten Anthony "The Dog'' Dirrell (26-0-1, 22 KOs), of Flint, Mich.
Bika intends to bring the fight to Dirrell from the opening bell of the first round. He wants to establish a fast, tough pace early on.
"The first fight with Dirrell, I started off a little too slow. For this fight I will try to show that I am the boss in the right from the beginning, and make him scared. I want to attack him relentlessly and prove to him that he doesn't belong in the ring with me," Bika said.
They fought to a twelve round draw last December. Bika feels confident he did enough to win.
"I definitely feel that I won the first fight and everyone saw that. The body shot that he got on me was a low blow, it was a lucky punch. I kept on hitting him so hard and he couldn't handle the pressure I was putting on him. I know that I won that fight," Bika said.
