World Weekend Boxing Roundup: DeGale, Drozd, Povetkin, Victorious

James DeGale Wins World Weekend Boxing Roundup: DeGale, Drozd, Povetkin, Victorious

There were two interesting fight cards this weekend, each featuring a world title contest as the IBF super middle and WBC cruiserweight belts were on the line in America and Russia, respectively.

On Saturday, the action took place at the Agganis Arena in Boston, MA as super middle southpaws James DeGale and Andre Dirrell clashed during an enthralling contest for the vacant IBF strap.

31 year old American Dirrell came into the bout the more experienced boxer, having faced Carl Froch and Arthur Abraham during the Super Six tournament in 2009 and 2010.

The Michigan man generally fights in a very negative style off the back foot but once the bell rang against the 29 year old DeGale, Dirrell was aggressively offensive, going forward with sharp jabs and left crosses.

The strategy backfired in the second round however, as DeGale, already bleeding from the right eye, detonated an overhand left that Dirrell never saw coming. The Flint native was floored but rose quickly on very shaky legs. More...
