Dabrowski Helped James DeGale, Feels He is Ready
By Luke Furman
This Saturday night in Denmark, EBU super middleweight champion James DeGale (11-1, 8 KOs) will make the first defense of his title against Italian veteran Cristian Sanavia (45-5-1, 13 KOs).
In preparation for this fight, the Briton received a lot of help from Polish prospect Norbert Dabrowski (7-0, 2 KOs), who revealed certain details about DeGale's training camp.
He says DeGale is throwing very fast punches, displaying good stamina and good technical boxing skills and moving very well.
"I had three sparring sessions with James. The first lasted 8 rounds, the second time we went 6 rounds. The last training session we had, we sparred for 7 rounds, but each round lasted four minutes," Dabrowski said.

Wouldn't it be ironic if the WBO offered DeGale the mandatory shot at Stieglitz?Comment by D-MiZe on 04-17-2012
I wouldn't consider this fight make or break. DeGale is going to win and look good against the Italian veteran. Hopefully he is put in with someone like Vera soon.Comment by P4P_No1 on 04-17-2012
C'mon Chunky. Don't become another failed British Gold medalist winner (ala Fraudley). Think the guy's got tremendous potential but I do think he needs a new trainer.Comment by Tyrone Biggums! on 04-17-2012
Make or break for Degale, i hope he produces the goodsComment by D-MiZe on 04-17-2012
Apparently DeGale has worked a lot on his defense, so I hope to see an improved version come Saturday.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (5)
