DeGale: Put Up or Shut Up time

15 10 2011

James DeGale is ready to “win in style” as he looks to claim the European super-middleweight title from Piotr Wilczewski tonight.

DeGale: Back in action

DeGale, fighting for the first time since his controversial defeat to bitter rival George Groves, believes he will rise to the occasion and silence his critics.

DeGale told “I’ll win it style, just to shut the doubters up.”

Despite the loss to Groves, it’s DeGale who has landed the shot for the European title.

This is a massive chance for DeGale, with a win putting him in the frame for a potential world title fight at some stage next year; not to mention the eagerly anticipated rematch with Groves.

Sweet Science UK prediction

It will be a tough fight for DeGale as his opponent has only lost one of his 30 fights but I expect DeGale to really put on a show and earn a stoppage victory, somewhere between the 7th and 9th round.

DeGale will have to put any talk or a rematch with Groves out of his mind during tonight’s bout and concentrate on the task ahead of him and let his boxing skills do the talking.

If he does that; he wins this fight and the rematch with Groves will come.
