DeGale: Fighting Froch Next Year Would Be Fantastic!

European super middleweight champion James DeGale told Sky Sports Punchlines that he would love to position himself for a 2013 summer showdown with countryman Carl Froch. The 2008 Olympic gold medal, 26-years-old, is looking to put his career back on track after sitting out due to a contractual dispute with former promoter Frank Warren.

He recently signed with a new promoter, Mick Hennessy, and is due to make a defense of his European belt in Kent on October 13. DeGale wants to get active enough to prepare himself for a battle with Froch.

He told Punchlines: "I have to be more active and I'll be fighting twice before Christmas. I'm happy to be on terrestrial TV and it will help get my career to where I want it to be. I'm ranked in the world's top ten with three of the governing bodies and Mick Hennessy has got a plan for me that by next year I will be boxing for a world title."

"Carl Froch is a great fighter and a road warrior who I really like watching. Fighting him next year for a world title would be a fantastic fight for Britain. I would box anyone at four weeks' notice for the world title if I was given the chance but really I need a few more fights to get back into the swing of it before I take on the likes of Carl Froch."

Neither Degale or Groves are ready for Froch. And I highly doubt either will have the career he's had.

[QUOTE=DonCarlos83;12568712][B]This article was published in January of this year[/B] so isn't really relevant anymore. More people watched Froch beat the hell out of Bute than watched Groves vs Degale. After that win it is clear that Froch might not be…
