Dirrell Vows To Make Things Right in Bika Rematch

Anthony Dirrell (26-0) says he is ready to make things right when he faces WBC super middleweight champion Sakio Bika (32-5) in a rematch next Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. The first fight ended with a draw (Bika 114-112, Dirrell 116-110 and 113-113) and although the bout was explosive and exciting, Dirrell says he should have won it.

"This fight has been on my mind since I first heard the result was a draw. I am excited and inspired to be crowned the WBC super middleweight champion. I know I can win, I know I have what it takes and I'll prove it. I could have done better in our first fight, and although I think I won that bout thats in the past now. This time I will convince the judges, and if I get the chance I will get the knockout," Dirrell said.
