The dates for the next round of bouts in Showtime’s Super 6 Boxing Classic are going to be released after Mikkel Kessler defends his WBA super middleweight belt against unbeaten American Andre Ward next month.
With some inside news, The Boxing Tribune has found out that the fight between Arthur Abraham and Andre Dirrell will be on the 23rd of January, in an unnamed venue in the US.
In the first round fights, Arthur Abraham (31-0, 25 KOs) scored a spectacular last round kayo over former middleweight Jermain Taylor (28-4-1, 17 KOs). Andre Dirrell (18-1, 13 KOs) lost a controversial split decision to WBC champion Carl Froch (26-0, 20 KOs) in a scrappy bout.
The bout is a must win for Dirrell if he wants to qualify for the tournament semi-finals. Abraham currently tops the round robin stage by gaining a bonus point with a stoppage of Taylor.
