Andre Dirrell suffers injury, fight against Arthur Abraham pushed back

Super middleweight Andre Dirrell injured his back while training in Las Vegas for his fight against Arthur Abraham in the Super Six World Boxing Classic.

The fight, which was originally set for March 6, has been rescheduled to March 27 and will be broadcast on SHOWTIME AT 10:30.

Andre saw a specialist and he is going to be ready to fight on March 27," Dirrell's promoter Gary Shaw said. "I know Andre is deeply disappointed about rescheduling but he is determined to resume training for the super middleweight division's most compelling fight."

Abraham didn't see a major problem with the rescheduling.

"Of course I was disappointed when I first heard of the postponement, but I am happy to take on Dirrell on March 27," Abraham said. "I want him to be in top shape so that he has no excuses once I am done with him."
