    I hope that between all the bitching and moaning and complaining these guys have found time to train for this fight.

    So the fight is in 2 weeks? I have heard that neither were in serious training. This could be farcical, I think Ward is the more cerebral fighter though and this could have been some gamesmanship.

    Where did you read this Skel? Haven't seen anything on the internet. What's the venue?

    Yea im curious to see where the venue is going to be too. I can't see the tickets sale doing well at all if this holds true. I would love to go if it was local, but like most people i've made other plans since i haven't heard anything.

    I don't see how it could be in so short of time, they have no time to promote the fight, sell tickets or even train. I hear neither of them was in serious training.

    If both are in shape....No one in the SS really nhas time to get out of shape if they do they are idiots considering they know how often they will have to fight and that no fights are going to be walkovers....This should be a great fight....I think Dirrell can win....He has the speed and movement to give anyone fits...If he stands his ground at the right times he will catch Ward solidly...He actually has a higher KO% then Ward.....Or Ward could outmuscle him on the inside if Dirrell is not careful....Yes this fight has all the makings of a Fight of the Year canidate

    Dan Rafael doesn't think so.

    @danrafaelespn What's with the Showtime fraud of advertising Ward-Dirrell as still being on Sept. 25 during tonight's ShoBox telecast? NOT HAPPENING

    Yeah this fight isn't happening on the 25th. Both guys aren't training, there's not even any location or tickets sold. Showtime also just sent legal documents to both promoters telling them to get there sh*t toghter or there getting there butt sued.

    I was surprised it was biiled as goin on the 25th but still when it happens it will be a great fight...Though I was thinking it was going to be more towards the end of October or start of november

    I read somewhere these two are friends, and that means it may be a crap fight.

    They came up in the amateurs together on a national level and higher...I think Ward was telling a story once where when he met Dirrell he was a 125lbr with an afro so they have known each other a while for sure

    Staying in shape and full intensity training are two very different things. For these guys to be as sharp as they can be generally even if they come into camp in good shape they need at least 6 weeks to maximize their reflexes and stamina to peak conditions. Especially for a fight like this where we have the two fastest guys in the tournament, and so much they do relies on reflexes and staying sharp.

    I dont know about that. Both guys have abit of a rep for fighting ugly. Theyve been in their share of stinkers so I dont think their styles will compliment each other. I just hope its not a really bad fight cuz it could be.
