Korobov Credits Sparring With Andre Dirrell For Win
By Ryan Burton
Shortly after his unanimous decision victory over Jose Uzcategui, Matt Korobov (24-0) revealed that he had sparred with super middleweight contender Andre Dirrell throughout much of his training camp.
Korobov credited the former Super Six participant for playing a key role in his dominate win over over the previously unbeaten Uzcategui.
"The key to the fight was the body shots. I broke him down to the body early in the fight," Korobov told BoxingScene.com. "Dirrell was the difference. Having quality sparring for this fight was the key."
With the victory Korobov picked up the WBO International title and moved a step closer to becoming the mandatory contender for the WBO champion Peter Quillin.

Dirrell will never be in a meaningful fight again. He has no balls whatsoever.Comment by Hook-Right on 06-30-2014

Dirrell vs froch rematch! Book it.Comment by Freedom2016 on 06-30-2014
Andre Dirrell needs to make a return to the top scene of 168, he is wasted talent atm. He should of beat Carl Froch but he got a rather shoddy decision loss instead.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (18)
