James DeGale: Back in action

James DeGale is set for his first appearance of 2011 when he takes on Frenchmen Alpay Kobal on Ricky Burns undercard on Saturday night. (12 March)

DeGale, whose next opponent is strongly rumoured to be long time rival George Groves, has not boxed since beating Paul Smith to win the British title last December.

The British super-middleweight champion will take on the 34-year-old Kobal, who has won only seven of his previous 21 professional fights (five by way of KO) and has failed to win in his last five fights.

With George Groves impressive in his win just last week, DeGale will be looking to impress and send a message to his bitter rival as talks of a fight between the two Londoners hot up.
