Dirrell Wants a Rematch, Bika Wants Bigger Fights

Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York - A thrilling slugfest, had the excitable Barclays Center crowd on its feet at times. Sakio Bika (32-5-3, 21 KO's) and Anthony Dirrell (26-0-1, 22 KO's) went toe-to-toe from the first bell and battled to a split draw. Dirrell floored Bika early in the fight, and Bika later lost a point for a low-blow. In the end, the final tally was a split draw: 114-112 (Bika), 116-110 (Dirrell), 113-113. After the scores were announced, Dirrell immediately left the ring without commenting on his performance. Ringside reporter Jim Gray was able to catch up with Dirrell in his locker room shortly after.

"I want to apologize to the fans for leaving the ring like that but I was just disappointed," said a frustrated Dirrell. "He hit low and head butted. I definitely want a rematch."

Bika felt differently. "I feel like I was fighting the referee as well. The body shot was a legitimate body shot. Not below the belt line. I got him on the belt line, Dirrell just wanted to milk it. I was the busier fighter and now I just want to fight the best ahead of me."

I had it a draw ( don't c how NJ judge Pasquale had Direll up 4 rounds, AFTER the knockdown & point deduction), but Direll could have been far more aggressive if he wanted 2 win...Bika comes back, probably in March/April vs a credible guy...I loved Bika's body punches...

[QUOTE=handsome1-1]Dirrell should have won that fight. He did far more to win. Wild shot Bika, it won't be long before he loses that belt in any case[/QUOTE] He should and could have won the fight, but has no-one but himself to blame for throwing it away. The thing is that he didn't do far mor...

The Dirrell Brothers are a pair of straight up bitches. He could have finished Bika early, had they an ounce of killer instinct between them. Back of the line you go.

[QUOTE=Frank Ducketts]Both Groves and Dirrell deserve rematches. They scared the life out of Bika and Froch. Their fans want to move on from these two.[/QUOTE] Bika has fans? :wtf1:
