I've always liked the kids skill, but he's wasted almost 4 years of his prime.

Refelx fighters don't age well past 30, and as it stands he's basically a 30 year old prospect.

Andre Dirrell, albeit a good boxer, is an idiot. He faked a head injury, which was not beneficial to him because he wasted valuable prime months sitting on the sidelines when he was never really injured, he burned his bridges with Showtime and left a sour taste in the mouth of many fans such as myself who are condemning him for his cowardice.

I'm no manager but what he should have done was grew a pair, fought Ward (I know they're great friends but its the sport) and beat him like I predicted, then fought whoever else in the S6. Then chased Bute and cleaned out 168. He certainly has the tools to do it.

But now he's inactive, in the shadows, locked up in promotion issues and the rest of the fighters at 168 who years ago I said Andre would whoop has improved and would give him a much tougher fight.

Discuss.
He left Al Haymon, Gary Shaw an hasn't fought in over a year plus so yes...I think it safe to say we should forget about the Matrix.

Andre Dirrell is talked about a lot for an inactive fighter. Reminds me of Mayweather in 2008. 1,000 threads about why Mayweather isn't relevant and how he needs to fight again to be an ATG.
he isnt talked up that much nor is he anywhere near as accomplished as mayweather was < 2008 (???)

i used to defend him throughout the super six...i felt he was robbed against froch and abraham was scum for not acknowledging his foul but the truth is dirrell probably hasnt improved due to the long lay off while its been years when froch has been referred to as a brawler and he's improved immensely.

yet dirrell is still mentioning froch like he can still right that wrong while doing no more than hitting the mitts with floyd sr

Why isn't he fighting? Doesn't he need money?
I have no clue what he's up to, the last I read was an un-televised fight that doesn't look like is going to happen - annnd uh, news like that doesn't exactly help my argument lol.. you've got me on that one.

"A couple of months" they say now...

I'm just saying that at least he doesn't let himself go so if he gathers the heart to continue then at least he'd be ready physically. I guess the flip side of hearing he's "been in the gym" is that he might be figuring out he doesn't want to get back to the real fights. If that's the case then at least he's saving us the TV time.

It does seem like Dirrell is wasting his talent. Maybe his heart is not into it anymore. If so he should just retire.
