Dirrell vs Cunningham and Taylor vs Nicklow 12 30 2011 (3 of 14)

Andre Dirrell (24-2, 16 KOs) returns to action on April 29 in Atlantic City, where he’ll take onBlake Caparello (22-1-1, 6 KOs) in a 10-round super middleweight clash on Premier Boxing Champions from the Taj Mahal Casino and Hotel.

“April 29 is going to be a fun night of boxing,” said Andre. “Caparello is hungry just like me and he’s fighting for his career so I know he’s a very dangerous man. Everything in camp has been perfect so far. I’m excited that both Anthony and I will get to showcase our skills and spread our family name even more on the same Spike show.”

The card, which will air on Spike, will also include brother Anthony Dirrell (28-1-1, 22 KOs), who will meet Caleb Truax (26-2-2, 16 KOs) in a 10-round super middleweight bout.  The card will air at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m.

“It’s an honor to be fighting on the same card as my brother,” said Anthony. “It’s going to be a great night of boxing. Truax is a good, rugged fighter who will bring out the best in me. I need someone to push me to the max. My prediction is always a knockout.”

Tickets for the event, which are on sale now, are priced at $100, $75 and $50.
