The 28-year-old super middleweight is excited to be a part of Mayweather's new promotional company, TMT (The Money Team) and the interesting opportunities that await.
Two opportunities in particular involve high-profile rematches for Dirrell (20-1, 14 KO) that could each earn him a world title.
IBF world champ Carl Froch (29-2, 21 KO) recently lost his planned fall opponent due to a financial disagreement, and Arthur Abraham (34-3, 27 KO) has a WBO championship match on Aug. 25.
The power of Abraham is expected to overcome the skill of current WBO champ Robert Stieglitz (42-2, 23 KO).
Both men could be available for the Nov. 17 date and both men have a history with Dirrell that could be used to sell a rematch.
Here's a look at which fighter presents the more meaningful fight for Mayweather and Dirrell to make.
