Weekend action: Five storylines and preview of Dirrell-DeGale

I’ve come to be a bit leery when approached with fights like those taking place this weekend.

Nothing particularly stands out about any of these match-ups. Most are good enough to watch on paper, but could just as easily be 36-minute snoozers. In one receiving more than it’s share of press coverage, British star James DeGale crosses the pond for an unlikely clash with Andre Dirrell, an American fighter whose only just certainty is his ability to cloud the résumé of Carl Froch with a very curious result. His only defeat was very questionable, and his greatest victory, over Arthur Abraham, came by DQ.

Fighters took part in a media workout at The Ring Boxing Club in Boston Wednesday to kick off fight week for this Saturday’s Premier Boxing Champions on NBC card at Agganis Arena that is headlined by Andre Dirrell vs. James DeGale with coverage starting at 4:30 p.m. ET/1:30 p.m. PT.

James Degale obsessed with making history on Saturday

James DeGale MBE says his “obsession” to create history as the first Birtish Olympic gold medallist to win a World title will drive him on to victory when he faces Andre Dirrell for the vacant IBF World Super Middleweight title in Boston on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports.

James DeGale left with options for vacant IBF title fight

Yesterday, Matchroom Sport announced that Carl Froch had vacated his IBF 168-lb title belt.

The tough, strong-willed English fighter has been sidelined due to injuries and stagnant negotiations with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. He hasn’t been able to secure the big-money match-up that would get him back to the ring after scoring back-to-back knockout victories over domestic rival George Groves.
