Huck-Arslan: Dirks To Face Conceicao For WBA Belt

By Per Ake Persson

Hardpunching German light heavyweight Dustin Dirks, 25-0 (19), goes for his first title November 3 in Halle / Westfalen when he face Brazilian Cleiton Conceicao for the vacant WBA I/C title in a supporting bout to Marco Huck vs. Firat Arslan.
 
Dirks is indeed unbeaten and has knocked out most of his opponents in impressive fashion, but on August 25th in Berlin against Czech journeyman Sandro Siproshvili he had an off-night altogether and was badly stunned in the fifth and on the verge of being stopped but somehow he came through it - and it was Sandro who punched himself out and finally told his corner to retire him - with the referee telling him to shut up - but then the cornermen got the message and the towel came in.

"It was a good experience for me, says Dirks in a press release from Sauerland, but I showed strong character and at the end I won clearly. And I´m sure it was an exciting fight for the audience."
