DeGale Can Get New Promotional, Must Pay Warren 25%

By Terence Dooley

Frank Warren’s office has told BoxingScene that James DeGale remains under contract with Warren until April 2013 and that the super middleweight prospect will have to pay Warren 25 percent of his purses until that date if he fights under a new promotional outfit.  It means that, the remuneration issue aside, DeGale, 12-1 (9), is now effectively in control of his own destiny; he can surge forward with his career after an anxious seven-month wait and can take on new promotional representation.

The 26-year-old fighter declared his intention to split with his manager when issuing a statement via his solicitors, Blick and Co., in January.  “Chunky” has since fought and defeated Cristian Sanavia in defence of his EBU super middleweight title after Italy’s Round Zero won the right to stage the bout via purse bids.

The Londoner, who won gold at the Beijing Olympics, lost his undefeated record to George Groves in May of last year when dropping a majority decision at the O2 Arena only to bounce back with a narrow points win over Piotr Wilczewski in October of the same year.

With the 2012 London Games looming large, DeGale needs to get himself back in action as soon as possible to remind people why there was so much buzz around the talented southpaw when he turned professional after netting middleweight gold.

If DeGale were spiteful he'd fight a couple of bums in Harlesden community center. Just for banter. 'Here you Frank, 25%? I make that £64.80'

DeFail is going nowhere slow, but at least he's done more than Groves. Don't mind this move for him, these guys need to man the **** up and get some real fights, the era of protected fighters is coming to…

Agree with the Matchroom statement. Bite the bullet, have a couple of low level keep busy fights, let Frank have his pound of flesh then move on in 9 months. But stay busy. No matter what people think of DeGale…
