Flint’s Anthony Dirrell Regains WBC Super Middleweight Championship
Anthony "The Dog" Dirrell is on top of the boxing again after winning the WBC World Super Middleweight belt Saturday night.
This is the title that Dirrell held five years ago, and now he is the champ once again.
The fight was scheduled for 12 rounds but was stopped in the 10th after a bad cut was opened up over Dirrell's left eye. The cut was the result of two unintentional headbutts during the fight, and did not count as points against Dirrell.
Check out the video below to see the full highlights including the explanation of how the fight was decided by the judges, despite being stopped early.
It's clear that Dirrell was in control of the fight, even though his opponent was not happy with the decision. Dirrell is 34 years old, but still managed to set personal records with 863 punches thrown, and 317 punches landed.
Dirrell has said that 2019 will be his last year in the ring, but he hopes to have one more fight to unify belts before he is done.
If this was the last time we see Anthony in the ring, at least we can say, "THE CHAMP IS HERE!"
