Dirrell: If Froch fights me again, he loses hands down! He don’t want it!
By Scott Gilfoid: Unhappy with some of the comments that WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch (27-1, 20 KO’s) recently made about him being “easy work,” Dirrell fired back on his twitter page saying Froch is haunted about their previous fight. Froch won a very questionable 12 round split decision over Dirrell back in 2009. The fight took place in Froch’s home city of Nottingham, England, and to put it mildly, Froch looked wretched. It a terrible performance from him, as he was barely able to land a glove on Dirrell the entire fight.
Recently, Froch said this about the Dirrell fight: “I made easy work of Andre Dirrell. I’ve done more damage shaving than what Andre Dirrell did.”
This didn’t escape the talented Dirrell’s attention, however, because he fired back at Froch on his twitter page, saying “Yeah, the fight was easy work four Carl Froch. The judges told him if he gets to a decision with me, no work required. LOL. I’m not surprised at the statement he made. He’s a cocky fighter who has to live up to his rep, but it obviously haunts him [his previous fight with Dirrell] everyday. Carl Froch fights me again, he loses hands down! He don’t want it with the Matrix no more. I’m the last fight he’ll want to meet. LOL!”
I totally agree with Mr. Dirrell. Froch doesn’t want any part of this talented, un-hittable star in the making. Froch was throwing and missing all night long against Dirrell, and looking totally clueless. In the 10th, Dirrell turned up the heat and staggered Froch with a beautiful left to the head.
I just wonder why Froch is saying the Dirrell fight was easy work when he was totally getting dominated by Dirrell. I guess it really bugs him how easily Dirrell was handling him.
