It's a beautiful thing to see people finally receive their roses and the Dirrell brothers have been holding down boxing for the Flint area since I was a kid. So to see such a dope mural is like fitting the final piece to the puzzle.

The mural is located on the side of Julie's Pawn & Jewelry on Saginaw Street in downtown Flint if you wanna check it out for yourself. Anthony who last fought in February holds an impressive record of 33 wins and 2 losses Anthony is still very much a top-level competitor. Let's hope that we see him in the ring soon, but with COVID-19 still being a huge issue, boxing events are getting harder and harder to organize.

Until the next time we see Anthony in the ring, let's let him know that he's inspired a whole generation of upcoming fighters. Anthony is the shining example of what can happen if you follow your dreams even if you are from the small city of Flint.
