Andre Dirrell was clearly one of the best super middleweights in the world when he fought Carl Froch and Arthur Abraham in the Super Six Tournament.

He lost to Froch by split decision in England, and was ahead on all scorecards when Abraham got DQ'd for throwing a sucker punch while Dirrell was already down.

 That shot from Abraham rendered Dirrell unconscious and left him with neurological damage that put him on the sidelines for almost three years.

At long last, "The Matrix" is back and looking to finish what he started with the best super middleweights in the world. He says he used his time off wisely -- not only staying in shape, but learning new techniques in the gym -- and is happier today than he's ever been.

This is a terrific interview with a fighter who (like his cancer-surviving world champion brother) is very easy to root for..

The Dirrell interview is preceded by analysis by Travis Hartman and John J. Raspanti of Showtime's tripleheader, including evaluations of Omar Figueroa Jr, Anthony Dirrell, and the Brook-Porter main event.

Boxing trainer Sam Garcia also joins us during the first half of the show to discuss his middleweight, Paul Mendez.

We then talk to Max and Sam Garcia, the father-son trainers whose hot prospect, Preston Freeman, was murdered four days earlier in St. Louis.

This fascinating 30 minutes is the first half of our March 10, 2013 show featuring Ruslan Provodnikov and boxing writer John J. Raspanti of doghousboxing.com after the commercial break.
