Boxing Star Andre Dirrell Getting Married!
By Media Report on Doghouse Boxing (April 23, 2010)    
(FLINT, MICH.) – While his fellow Super Six competitors Carl Froch (Nottingham, England) and Mikkel Kessler (Copenhagen, Denmark) face off on the opposite side of the globe, Andre Dirrell (Flint, Mich.) will be attending to important business of his own in his hometown of Flint, Michigan. Dirrell will wed his high school sweetheart, Alaia Zamora in a family affair at a local church on Saturday afternoon.

The pair met a decade ago when she shared a school bus with Dirrell and his brother, Anthony. The groom remembers Zamora sitting in the front of the bus while he and his brother caused trouble in the back, often getting kicked off for their antics. Yet it wasn’t until two years later in 2002 that the two officially met at a high school football game, and he turned on the charm. They have been together since that time and Zamora has experienced many ups and downs with her fiancée, including the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece and more recently his controversial loss to Carl Froch and disqualification victory over the previously unbeaten Arthur Abraham.

After several years together, Dirrell popped the question in 2008 and the pair will seal the deal on Saturday. The two have two children together, three-year-old Anaijah and two-year-old Andre, Jr., and share a home in Flint.

Several members of Dirrell’s boxing family will be on hand at the event, including long-time friend and former amateur standout Lorenzo Reynolds and WBC Welterweight World Champion Andre Berto.
