Cleverly, DeGale Could Spar For Their May 21 Battles
Nathan Cleverly and James DeGale could spar ahead of their respective fights on May 21 at the O2 Arena, London.
Cleverly challenges for the WBO light-heavyweight title against Jurgen Braehmer, while DeGale is involved in a British and Commonwealth super-middleweight title showdown with bitter rival George Groves.
After his last fight, Cleverly blamed a lack of quality sparring for a lacklustre performance.
He has even contemplated a switch to London - for training camps - to improve the preparation he gets.
DeGale is well used to moving around the country to get quality opposition, and has previously moved around with current Commonwealth light-heavyweight champion Tony Bellew.
If Cleverly and DeGale do meet, it could be a pre-cursor to a titantic showdown in a couple of years time.
Although a super-middleweight at the moment, DeGale looks big enough to shift up to light-heavyweight without losing any of his edge.
Degay can't bang. I guarantee he won't KO Groves.Comment by gingerbreadman on 03-19-2011
Nah mate, DeGale may fight small but he's 6 foot-odd. He can bang at super-middle too, but Clev is freakishly tall at 175, I'll give you thatComment by sam1990 on 03-19-2011
Nah, Degale is small and doesn't have the power to make up for it at Light Heavyweight.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (3)
