Andre Dirrell May Face Rowland Bryant in March

By Edward Chaykovsky

According to Mlive, Super middleweight Andre Dirrell may return to action in the month of March against Rowland Bryant. Dirrell returns tomorrow night in McAllen, Texas after 13 months of inactivity. He faces Milton Nunez (25-6-1, 23 KOs) in a fight that may get some minor coverage on the UniMas network if time permits. Dirrell (20-1, 14 KO's) wants to stay busy and get in as many fights as possible in 2013.

Dirrell says his next return, depending on Saturday's night result, will take place on March 1 or March 16. Dirrell's camp was in discussions to face Bryant, who cited a back injury for being unable to go forward.

"If I can get this guy out of here maybe in the first couple of rounds we're looking to come back with a March 1st or March 16th date," Dirrell said. "I want to fight as much as possible for these years to come, so I will be a very busy man these coming years."

He's going to the Spadafora route with his career, fight nobodies, while getting his bills paid.

This guy needs to get his act together, he looked promising in the Super six, but he hasn't done anything since then.

What a waste of talent

He's fighting Milton "Ko'd in 1" Nunez? Isn't that the guy they fed to GGG a few years back to give him a belt? If it goes beyond 2, Dirrell needs to retire
