Andre Dirrell vs Arthur Abraham: rumoured to be delayed


Froch vs Dirrell fight in the first round

The second round of the Showtime Super Six tournament was reported to kick off at the Madison Square Garden in late January between Michigan's Andre 'the Matrix' Dirrell and unbeaten, former IBF middleweight boss, Arthur Abraham.

However the German-based Abraham is reported suffering with the flu and the fight is now being lined up to possibly occur in early March.

Froch vs Kessler is also lined up for early March, but that may also be put back on account of the cuts which the former WBA champion suffered whilst losing his last fight and title to Oakland's Andre Ward.

Saulerland Event promote both Kessler & Abraham and who knows, should Kessler be healed in time the fight could be a double bill - but the liklihood is the Dirrell vs Abraham fight will still take place Stateside whilst the Froch vs Kessler fight will proceed as planned in Denmark somewhere, possibly Copenhagen.
