DeGale: Froch Would Not Have Hit Me With KO Right!

By Chris McKenna, courtesy of The Daily Star

JAMES DEGALE has warned Carl Froch that there will be no repeat of his stunning KO of George Groves when he faces him. Froch, 37, flattened Groves with a huge right hand in the eighth round of their massive rematch at Wembley in May.

DeGale, 28, beat American Brandon Gonzales on the same bill to put him as mandatory challenger for Froch's IBF super-middleweight title.

Froch had initially said he would only fight Julio Cesar Chavez Jr in Las Vegas or retire.

But now DeGale looks set to get his dream shot at the Nottingham man with Eddie Hearn working on a deal for the pair to fight in London this November.

And the 2008 Olympic gold medallist fired off an early warning to the triple world champion saying: "I know the way Groves got knocked out, that right hand would not have hit me. I would love to fight Carl Froch, my style is all wrong for him."

Seriously, besides Froch and Hearn, who the f*ck was ever talking up a fight with Chavez? I haven't even seen Arum or Chavez himself talk about it. Nobody cares about it.

I like James but if that thing he does when he willingly puts himself on the ropes and tries to roll with punchesand counter. It is a bit haphazard. Suicide. Froch would smash him to pieces if he did that.

The punch did come from a long way and Groves was trying to land that ridiculous left hook because that was his prediction. What an idiot! :lol1:

[B]I like Degale but if Wilczewski could land a hard right & have you doing the samba, I'm pretty confident that Froch can land more then a few strong right hands.[/B]

[QUOTE=CLUNG3-TANK;14772858]if Degale is constantly rolling and countering like he usually does this'll be a fantastic clash, he showed some fantastic power against Gonzales. But [B]if he adds alot more clinching into his game plan a la Ward it'll mess up…
