DeGale: Give Me Eight Weeks, I'll Be On Another Level

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of Nick Parkinson

JAMES DEGALE has promised to do better after shaking off the ring rust when he makes a swift return on December 8.

The Londoner is looking forward to boxing more often after a unanimous points win over Frenchman Hadillah Mohoumadi in the second defence of his European super-middleweight title.

But DeGale, 26, admitted his performance at the Bluewater shopping centre in Kent was not as sharp as it could have been after boxing just four rounds in the last year.

The 2008 Olympic gold medallist blew away the cobwebs since his last brief bout in April and spent spells on the ropes absorbing punches.

DeGale said: “You can expect me to be better, crisper and a lot more neat when I box next.

“But people have to remember I’ve only had 14 fights, I’m still learning.

“Give me another eight weeks and I will be on another level.”

DeGale’s promoter Mick Hennessy is confident the fighter will benefit from a busy schedule – with the target being a world title shot next year.

He said: “Considering James has had only one fight in the last year I thought he did incredible.”

Jim McDonnell is an absolute bum who talks like Pat Butcher All he knows how to train is "fitness". DeGale is wasting his talent with that buffoon.
