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?

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.

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.

Make or break for Degale, i hope he produces the goods

Apparently DeGale has worked a lot on his defense, so I hope to see an improved version come Saturday.
