Dirrell vs Abraham postponed



Andre Dirrell has revealed that a back injury is likely to put his scheduled fight back with Arthur Abraham back a few weeks.

Speaking to 'On the ropes' radio, he revealed that he'd previously had the same injury and had taken between one to two weeks to heal. Dirrell is due to see a specialist, but in the meantime, today's media conference had allegedly been cancelled.

Abraham meanwhile is already based in Palm Springs ahead of his fight and has been sparring furiously at Lee Espinoza's Coachella Boxing Club. Word from the gym is that Abraham has left several sparring partners battered, bruised and mightily impressed.

The re-scheduled date has been confirmed as March 27th.
