Weekend action: Five storylines and preview of Dirrell-DeGale

I've come to be a bit leery when approached with fights like those taking place this weekend.

Nothing particularly stands out about any of these match-ups. Most are good enough to watch on paper, but could just as easily be 36-minute snoozers. In one receiving more than it's share of press coverage, British star James DeGale crosses the pond for an unlikely clash with Andre Dirrell, an American fighter whose only just certainty is his ability to cloud the résumé of Carl Froch with a very curious result. His only defeat was very questionable, and his greatest victory, over Arthur Abraham, came by DQ.
