World Boxing Council super middleweight champion Anthony “The Dog” Dirrell (33-1-1, 24 KOs) is readying to defend his Green and Gold Belt against undefeated former champion, David “Red Flag” Benavidez (21-0, 18 KOs), on September 28 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
Anthony is walking his talk, doing a great preparation, as he wants to take the lead, by proving his quality when he faces Benavidez, who has himself already held the WBC crown and reappeared after more than a year of inactivity to knock out the tough fighter J’Leon Love.
Dirrell comes from winning the supermiddle title by defeating Turkish contender Avni Yildirim by a technical decision, in a fight in Minnesota, United States.
“I will defend what is mine. I feel very motivated and very hungry for triumph. I’m going to get in the ring to do my job and the title will stay with me, promised ”Dirrell.
The match will be broadcast on FOX Sports PBC Pay-Per-View and tickets are on sale at AXS.com.
