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."
