WARD-DIRRELL IN JEOPARDY? LOOKS HIGHLY UNLIKELY FOR SEPTEMBER 25
By Hector Linares
Boxingtalk has been hearing some serious rumblings that undefeated WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward and Andre Dirrell will not be fighting on September 25 in their stage 3 bout of the Super Six World Boxing. No venue has been announced, tickets are not on sale and we also understand that neither boxer is in training camp as this goes to print. Ward and Dirrell's friendship has been well documented and it should be most interesting to see if they ever fight each other. Dirrell's future in the tournament greatly depends on the result of his fight with Ward, which is as attractive a match-up that Showtime could have ever hoped for. Remember where you heard it first!
