DeGale Heads To Canada; Could Return Again in July

By Terence Dooley

London's James "Chunky" DeGale has flown out to Canada to acclimatise ahead of his May 17th fight at Quebec's Hilton Lac Leamy.  The 14-1 (9) southpaw's opponent has yet to be named, but the 27-year-old will be confident of netting his fifth consecutive win since dropping a tight majority decision to London rival George Groves in May 2011.

"Team Chunky" have stated that they hope to squeeze in a fight in July, should the 2008 Olympic gold medalist prevail in Canada, as part of an active schedule since moving over to Mick Hennessy in September.  DeGale has defeated Hadillah Mohoumadi and Fulgencio Zuniga — both on points and for the EBU and WBC Silver Super middleweight titles respectively — since joining Hennessy Sports and has spoken about his desire to net himself a world title fight a few bouts down the line.

The trip to Canada,  DeGale's first professional outing in North America, will also present the 2005 and 2006 ABA title winner with a chance to win over some new fans as he continues his journey into world title contention.

So he's fighting an unknown opponent (tomato can) in an unknown place. Will anyone see this amazing fight? He should be screaming for a Stieglitz fight.
