DeGale: Froch is an Easier Fight For Me Than Groves

James DeGale will fight Brandon Gonzales on the Carl Froch v George Groves undercard - with the two winners to meet for the world title later in the year.

The Londoner announced his split from promoter Mick Hennessy last week and has joined Eddie Hearn's growing stable of Matchroom Sport fighters.

DeGale edged closer to a WBC super-middleweight title shot with a stoppage win over Gevorg Khatchikian last month and Hearn confirmed at a media conference to announce the deal that DeGale will fight Gonzales at Wembley on May 31.

DeGale's fight with the unbeaten Gonzales will act as a title eliminator, with the winner going on to face either Groves or Froch for the IBF and WBA titles.

"I'm back, I'm back big," said DeGale, who lost to Groves back in 2011. "The last year or so has been very frustrating for me. If I'm brutally honest, I've been depressed but that's the past and I am looking forward to the future.

"In the short space of time we have announced this I feel energised, I feel like I've got a new lease of life. So you are definitely going to see the best James DeGale.

"What makes me excited is the winner of Froch-Groves; Who do I want to win? I'm not fussed to be honest. I think Froch is an easier fight, he's made for me and I've said that for ages.

"Me and George Groves? It's personal. I get uptight and angry even talking about him. I'm ready - whoever is there I'm ready to do it and deal with them."

The former Olympic champion added: "Potentially the fights out there for me are crazy, crazy but I can't look past Gonzales. This guy is unbeaten, he trained with Andre Ward and Amir Khan so that must inspire him.

"He is a good fighter I've seen clips of him. I can't overlook this guy so all my focus is on Gonzales. After I have dealt with him then the big fights are there and that's what I need to motivate me and to get me boxing the best I can.

"The future is looking extremely bright so fasten your seatbelts. Enjoy the ride with me because it should be exciting and I'm looking forward to it."

Chunky has not been given a chance to shine in last few years. He won vs Groves arguably and has never been beaten up in any of his wins nor awarded a gift decision. Whenever Degale has stepped up he has proven he belongs when he smashed Paul Smith for the British title and beat a respectable fel...

[QUOTE=springfiels]I think Brandon Gonzales might be surprised at the amount of support he has inside Wembley on 31 May! Chunky is such a donut.[/QUOTE] Not nice to hear but true! Another delusional fighter.

[QUOTE=TGD]I can just imagine what Froch would do to this clown when he does his usual rolling about on the ropes![/QUOTE] I was thinking this too. It would get messy quickly. It is also the reason I sort of suspect Bika would make a mess of him. I know he says he had bad knees but I ...

this could be a potential banana skin opponent seeing as one thing is for sure this opponent has decent technique and degale throws those slapping type punches not the kovalev/pacquio type ones.
