Dirrell has the edge over DeGale, says Booth

_DM34444(Photo credit: Carly Gillis Photography) By Scott Gilfoid: Trainer Adam Booth believes that the talented Andre Dirrell (24-1, 16 KOs) should be considered the favorite for Saturday night against James DeGale (20-1, 14 KOs) in their fight for the vacant IBF super middleweight title at the Agganis Arena, in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

The fight, which will be televised on NBC on Premier Boxing Champions, pits two southpaws with slick fighting styles. The main difference between them, besides age, is Dirrell’s superior hand speed, mobility, defensive skills, power and experience. DeGale has youth on his side, as he’s two years younger than Dirrell. That obviously isn’t a huge gap in age, which is why I don’t see it as being an asset for DeGale.

Dirrell motivated by his brother’s loss to Badou Jack

_DM33182(Photo credit: Carly Gillis Photography) By Scott Gilfoid: In watching his brother Anthony Dirrell lose his WBC super middleweight title last month to Badou Jack, #2 IBF Andre Dirrell (24-1, 16 KOs) is now more motivated than ever to go out and whip James DeGale (20-1, 14 KOs) this Saturday night in Boston, Mass.

Dirrell and DeGale will be fighting for the vacant IBF super middleweight title that was recently abandoned by Carl Froch.

Dirrell: DeGale will pay if the fight goes 12 rounds

_DM33164(Photo credit: Carly Gillis Photography) By Scott Gilfoid: Andre Dirrell (24-1, 16 KOs) figures that it will be much easier for the visiting James DeGale (20-1, 14 KOs) if he’s knocked out quickly on Saturday night in their clash for the vacant IBF 168lb title rather than if the fight goes the full distance. If the fight goes the full 12, DeGale will take a lot of punishment and will have to pay, Dirrell says.

It’s hard to doubt a fighter like Dirrell because if you watched his last fight against Derek Edwards last December, you’ll have noticed how much awful punishment Edwards took in that fight.

Froch wants to see DeGale to take the fight to Dirrell

YouTube video

By Scott Gilfoid: In reviewing James DeGale’s opposition in his current 10-fight winning streak, there really isn’t much to see in the way of talent. He’s no faced anyone of quality during the last four years, and that’s why it’s almost impossible to tell whether he’s improved or not over the fighter that lost to George Groves in 2011.

DeGale: Dirrell doesn’t like it when it gets difficult in there

dirrell323By Scott Gilfoid: While super middleweight contender James DeGale (20-1, 14 KOs) has never fought #2 IBF Andre Dirrell (24-1, 16 KOs) before in order to give an accurate description of his talent and what he can or can’t do in the ring, DeGale is already dissecting him by saying that he sees him as someone who struggles when put under duress.

This Saturday night fans will get a chance to see if the 29-year-old DeGale knows what he’s talking about when he and Dirrell go head to head for the vacant IBF 168lb crown.
