Dirks To Face Barney on Abraham Bill, Ulrich Withdraws
By Luke Furman
Light heavyweight veteran Thomas Ulrich will not face unbeaten Dustin Dirks (22-0, 16 KOs) on Saturday night in Offenburg. While the exact reason is unknown at the moment, the former two-time European champion has withdrawn from the fight. Matthew Barney (26-9-1, 6 KOs) will replace Ulrich against the 22-year-old Dirks. In the main event, former middleweight champion Arthur Abraham will make his return against the durable Pablo Farias.
