Review: 2014-12-19, some good exchanges between Andre Dirrell and Derek Edwards: but it is not enough to get three stars: it gets two. Andre Dirrell entered this fight with a boxing record of 23-1-0 (16 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.11 super middleweight in the world, he suffered his only defeat in 2009 when he faced Carl Froch (via split decision – fight valid for the Wbc world title); since then he has won five consecutive bouts, the last one against Nick Brinson (=Dirrell vs Brinson).
His opponent, Derek Edwards, has an official record of 27-3-1 (14 knockouts) and he entered as the No.33 in the same weight class, the last time he lost was at the end of 2013 when he faced Matt Korobov but after this fight he came back to win beating Badou Jack. Dirrell vs Edwards is on the undercard of Adonis Stevenson vs Dmitry Sukhotsky. Watch the video and rate this fight!
