ANDRE DIRRELL-DARRYL CUNNINGHAM ON SHOWTIME DEC. 30
Showtime announced on Monday in accordance with an earlier report by RingTV.com that switch-hitting super middleweight contender, Andre Dirrell (19-1, 13 KOs) will return to the ring against southpaw Darryl Cunningham (24-2, 10 KOs) on the Showtime-televised Dec. 30 card that also features the comeback of former undisputed middleweight beltholder Jermain Taylor (28-4-1, 17 KOs) against Jessie Nicklow (22-2-3, 8 KOs) of Baltimore from the Morongo Resort and Spa in Cabazon, Calif.
Cunningham was scheduled to fight former undisputed middleweight titleholder Kelly Pavlik (37-2, 32 KOs) in August before Pavlik cited issues over money for pulling out of the bout.
Taylor will facee Nicklow, who is 3-0-1, with one knockout since being stopped in the fourth round by Fernando Guerrereo (22-1, 17 KOs) December of 2009.
A former Olympic bronze medalist, Dirrell was last in the ring against Abraham in March of last year. That bout ended in controversy when Abraham punched Dirrell -- who was far ahead on the cards -- while he was down in the 11th round and was disqualified.
