DeGale: I Want a World Title Fight By The Olympics

On Saturday night. James DeGale became European super middleweight champion as he secured a twelve round majority decision against Piotr Wilczewski in Liverpool. DeGale bounced back from his points defeat by George Groves in May, the first loss of his professional career.

"It's about time, I'm back on top. Hopefully some doors will open," said DeGale. "I showed some grit and had to dig deep. His [Wilczewski's] record speaks for himself. He's a good seasoned pro. I got caught in the [fifth] round and then couldn't hear and my legs went a bit after I lost balance. But I got through it.

"I've got a world ranking now - I'm ranked number two in WBO. I've won the British and European titles in 12 fights and the Olympic gold. I want to fight for the world title by the time of the next Olympics. The loss against Groves was a blessing in disguise," said DeGale."

His win over Paul Smith flattered him. Paul Smith had a 29-1 record but he was **** in my opinion. He lost to Quigley and only ever proved himslef as champion of liverpool, not Britain.

I had DeGale by 2/3 rounds max, he won, but not as wide as it was scored..
