James DeGale said “Hadillah Mohoumadi is ranked in the top 15 of the European ratings.  He has mixed with some world class fighters and has never been stopped, so it will be a good test for my first fight back."

“I’m really looking forward to the 13th October.

Promoter Mick Hennessy said "Mohoumadi is a big, strong, in shape super-middleweight who is very aggressive and comes to fight, this promises to be an explosive fight and one not to be missed.

"James is going to have to be smart and use his god given talent to impress in this fight."

Clearly, this is some usage of the phrase "Middleweight Sensation" I was previously unaware of?
