Dirrell Vs Hernandez Fight Background
Two time WBC 168 Pound world Champion Anthony Dirrell will look to work himself back into title contention when he takes on Marcus Hernandez in the co main event of Canelo Alvarez Vs Caleb Plant fight card on November 6th.
Dirrell is looking for just another run for a world title before calling his career, which spans 17 years to an end. At 37 years, it’s understandable that He feels his career is running to a close.
“I’m getting up there for boxing, especially with these young boys coming in, and you know, taking over the sport,” Dirrell told FanSided. “I’m not gonna be that old guy that sit there and take punishment and be messed up afterwards.”
Dirrell (32-2-2, 24 KOs) has been involved in wars and has taken a lot of damage in his 17 years as a professional and age has gradually had his toll on him but he doesn’t plan to slow down and looks to put in more work to upset limitations that nature might be bringing his way.
Hernandez (15-4-2, 3 KOs) comes into the fight in the back of a stoppage win over Jose Resendiz but hasn’t fought at Dirrell’s level in his life. However, he is 9 years younger and will be a lot more athletic. Dirrell on the other hand, will look to use his experience.
Dirrell is planning for just another run for the title before hanging his gloves by that depends how many fighters will be lining up and the preference, Canelo or Plant will place on the fighters lining up for the undisputed crown after this night.
“I want to win this fight and hopefully get the winner of the main event,” said Dirrell. “If not, then it’s a high possibility that I’ll hang it up. Just because I’m 37 years old, man. I got kids at home that I’ve been going from, you know, sacrifice. You got to make sacrifices to get to where you want to be. And I made them sacrifices already. So I’m just looking forward to the opportunity to get the winner.”
