Universal Boxing Organization™ Inter-Continental Super Middleweight Champion Anthony Dirrell (23-0, 20 KOs) continues his road towards a world championship when he takes on Canadian Renan St. Juste (23-2-1, 15 KOs) on December 2 at the Chumash Casino in Santa Ynez, California.

The scheduled twelve-rounder is headlining a show promoted by Gary Shaw Productions, and will be televised in the United States by Showtime. Dirrell is coming off a second round knockout victory over Kevin Engel on ESPN, and in his bout before that he won the UBO title by stopping former Olympian Dante Craig in five.

If successful against St. Juste, Team Dirrell is hoping to get a shot at the winner of the Super Six tournament, Carl Froch or Andre Ward.

“We'll take either one of them. Whoever wins will have the WBC belt and the WBA belt. And Team Dirrell encourages them to take the Super Six trophy off the shelf and bring that too", Leon Lawson Jr., Dirrell’s uncle told ringtv.com recently.

“Anthony is already right there with the best in the division, and we feel that he's only scratching the surface. He's ready to prove himself. We believe that this fight will show to the world that Anthony belongs with the elite of the weight class.”

Renan St. Juste scored the biggest win of his career last year when he knocked out countryman Sebastian Demers in the second round to lift a WBO regional championship. The 39-year-old has won several titles as a professional, and will almost certainly present a big challenge for Dirrell.

“He’s a good fighter. He’s an older fighter, a real experienced fighter. A nice little snap in his punch. But I’m young and undefeated and ready to go. And he just happens to be the guy who’s standing in the way. I want to get my name out there. I want to keep my name buzzing in the boxing world”, said Dirrell in an interview with Boxingtalk.com.
