Andre Dirrell returns to the ring this Friday on FNF


Former title challenger Andre Dirrell, best known for his participation in the Super Six World Boxing Classic, will be returning to the ring for the first time in 18 months, as he’ll take on Vladine Biosse in the co-feature of this week’s ESPN Friday Night Fights card in Shelton, Wash.

“Andre was an outstanding amateur and one of the top super middleweights in the world picked to be part of Showtime’s innovative Super Six Tournament. His win over former world champion Arthur Abraham and highly controversial loss to Carl Froch during the tournament opened a lot of eyes on his tremendous athletic abilities and talent,” said Dan Goossen.

Added Dirrell, “I’m too excited on my return to the ring to make any predictions on the fight. I just want to hear the bell ring and get back to what I do best against a very tough Biosse.”

Dirrell, 21-1-0 (14 KOs) was last in action in February 2013, when he decisioned Michael Gbenga in McAllen, Texas.
