Abraham KO victims Taylor and Dirrell return
Two Arthur Abraham knockout-victims return to action on December 30th at Palm Springs. Both Jermain Taylor and Andre Dirrell were clubbed unconcious by Abraham during the Super Six tournament.
Taylor, who suffered a devastating loss to Abraham during the opening round back in October 2009 has been retired ever since. Also Dirrell, who controversially was knocked out by Abraham in the 11th round back in March 2010.
Jermain Taylor's opponent has now been verified and will face Baltimore man Jessie Nicklow (22-2, 8ko) over 10 rounds in his much-publicised return to middleweight.
Andre Dirrell (19-1) vs Darryl Cunningham (24-2) is also slated for the undercard over 10 rounds. Cunnigham was originally down to fight Pavlik until the 'Ghost' withdrew following money and personal problems.
Cunningham, also a southpaw like Dirrell, has remained undefeated in his last 17 fights and will be a decent test for the super-fast Dirrell.
