Super Middleweight 19 1 (13)
Last Year s Ranking: 68
Status Report: There was only one thing Dirrell could do to negate all the good will he earned with his upset win over Arthur Abraham (W DQ 11): quit the Super Six tournament. And that s what he did. Maybe the claims about his neurological problems are true; it remains that the match against Andre Ward was troubled from the very start and those who said it wouldn t happen were proved correct.
Future: Dirrell will fight again but not at the level he would have if he d stayed in the tournament. A bummer for everyone
