Anthony Dirrell in Number One Spot To Froch's WBC Belt

By Pawel Pronishev

In the latest WBC ratings, undefeated super middleweight contender Anthony Dirrell (23-0, 20KOs) has grabbed the number one spot in the WBC's rankings. The current champion, Carl Froch, will return on October 29th in a unification bout with WBA champion Andre Ward. Dirrell's brother, Andre Dirrell, lost a close twelve round split decision to Froch in the first stage of the Super Six tournament in 2009. Andre has been inactive since suffering an injury during his 2010 disqualification win over Arthur Abraham. Mikkel Kessler is still listed as the WBC's Emeritus champion and gets the first shot at the WBC title. Noe Gonzalez, the WBC's silver champion at the weight, may also be ahead of the line.Tags: Carl Froch , Anthony Dirrell
