Dirrell Ready For Stevenson's Power, Froch Rematch

By Edward Chaykovsky

Super middleweight contender Andre Dirrell (20-1, 14KOs) is ready and willing to face Adonis Stevenson (18-1, 15KOs) in an IBF final eliminator. Stevenson returns in the Showtime co-feature on August 11th at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.

Dirrell is not intimidated with Stevenson's power and doesn't have a problem with the fight taking place in Montreal, as long as the terms are on point.

"His one-punch knockout is all he has. I'm too hungry, first and foremost, and I'm really just ready to get in there. So, if the terms are right and everything goes smoothly, then I hope this fight is made," Dirrell said to The Flint Journal.

Dirrell wants to beat Stevenson in order to secure a big rematch with IBF champion Carl Froch. In 2009, Froch, then the WBC champion, won a close twelve round split decision over Dirrell in Nottingham.

"It's a big fight and it's really the Froch factor," said Dirrell. "It's not me overlooking Adonis to get to Froch, but the fight isn't locked in yet. All I know is, under the right circumstances, that me and Adonis will be the right situation because I really want to get back to Froch."

[QUOTE=damned1974;12302352]Personally,I felt Dirrell's best work was in the later rounds against Froch...he stunned and hurt Froch in those late rounds.[/QUOTE] Froch was tiring from chasing him round the ring for 9 rounds. Dirrell should have fought him from the start,…

Dirrell wins this fight easily. I can see a wide UD or a TKO win. Stevenson is a limited fighter with power that's it. Dirrell has all the tools he just needs to stay focused and it will be easy…
