DeGale: I'd Fancy The Winner of Kessler vs Stieglitz

James DeGale is refreshed and ready to go this Saturday night at the Liverpool Echo Arena in his European Super-Middleweight title challenge.

The former British Champion takes on the tough title-holder from Poland Piotr Wilczewski who's only lost once in 30 fights and is ranked number two by the WBO.

He features as chief support to the big showdown between WBO World Light-Heavyweight Champion Nathan Cleverly and Tony Bellew, LIVE on BoxNation (Sky Platform Ch. 456)

DeGale put on a blistering display in his media work-out today at his Loughton gym with trainer Jim McDonnell.

He said, "I've had a good rest and returned back stronger than ever and I'm just looking forward to getting in the ring again and winning the European title,"

"I'm still on track to fight for a world title next year which was always the plan when I turned professional after winning gold at the Beijing Olympics,"

"Wilczewski is a good strong fighter and he's ranked number two in the world, I'd be a stupid to just look past him so everything is about Saturday night and making sure I win,"

"It could be explosive and I'm sure the crowd and viewers on BoxNation are going to be in for special night with my fight plus a potential thriller between Cleverly and Bellew."

This will be his first fight since his close and controversial fight with George Groves in May that he lost on points to his rival.

He added, "One loss isn't going to break me, if fact, this is going to be the making of me and I'll go on to bigger and better things,"

"Groves is defending the British and Commonwealth titles against Paul Smith next, who I've already beat, but I'm going for the European title which is a bigger fight and a win will get me back in the rankings,"

"There's a great world title fight next month between Mikkel Kessler and Robert Stieglitz and I'd fancy the winner of that."

[QUOTE=belna;11278489]No. Degale has one big problem: a ****ed ego. He can't evaluate himself properly. More, he doesn't know what it takes to become a world champion. I thought his defeat could have helped him but he still talks as stupidly…

[QUOTE=Jakutindi Wauya;11274752]I wanted to say DeGale's still green but sadly that's not the case.He's been a professional for a long time now but he's not world class therefore he's a bum.No way he beats any of these guys,they will knock…

Providing De Gale wins, his next opponent will probably be Brian Magee.
