Anthony Dirrell-Renan St-Juste, Dec. 2 on Showtime

by Richard Cloutier

A lot of fans were disappointed when Renan St-Juste (23-2-1) wasn't booked for the big InterBox show scheduled for November 5th at the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec, which features a main event clash between Lucian Bute and Glen Johnson. But, another challenge looms on the horizon. InterBox confirmed to BoxingScene.com the buzz that's been circulating for the last few weeks. Renan St-Juste will have the opportunity to face undefeated Anthony Dirrell (23-0-0) on 2nd of December at the Chumash Casino in Santa Ynez, California.
 
The fight will be televised by Showtime as part of their ShoBox series. Dirrell vs St. Juste is also a WBC eliminator with the winner landing a shot at the title currently held by Carl Froch. Anthony Dirrell is the brother of Andre Dirrell.

Ranked in the top five by both the WBC and the WBO, St-Juste, 39-years-old and a former NABO, NABA and WBC Continental Americas - has been waiting for his big chance for the last few months. Earlier this year, St-Juste was being mentioned as a possible comeback opponent for Mikkel Kessler, but Danish star selected a different opponent for his June return.

"The Dog" is about to punish this guy. Another easy knockout for Dirrell. Flynttown Beatdown!

Leave get out of Michigan if you think the grass is greener on the other side. I left almost 3 years ago and can't wait to get back. If you were on the East Coast you wouldn't think Michigan was…

Bye bye Anthony...

A decent step up for Dirrell from who he has been fighting but that really speaks to the level of soft comp he has been fighting.

I like Anthony, he might turn out to be something if they don't start making up brain injuries and wanting to get paid Mayweather money.
