Andre Dirrell wins ugly DQ over Jose Uzcategui
Super middleweight Andre Dirrell (25-2 16KOs) is one of the most unlucky fighters or he drives people crazy in the ring that they want to hit him after the bell, but it happened again as Jose Uzcategui (26-1 22KOs) was disqualified after knocking out Andre Dirrell with a left hook after the bell in the eighth round.
The bout which was very close and entertaining saw Dirrell hurt in the second round, but rebounded to see the fight even with Dirrell outboxing Uzcategui at times and Uzcategui landing large flurries.
The fight ended in the eighth round when Uzcategui landed a left hook after the bell that knocked out Andre Dirrell. This was eerily similar to when Andre Dirrell was hit by Arthur Abraham when he was on the ground, that punch kept Dirrell inactive for a long period of time.
After the fight members of Dirrell’s camp punched Uzcategui after the bell as a mess broke out in the ring.
At the time of the stoppage, Jose Uzcategui was ahead in the fight.
