DeGale-Periban WBC World Title Eliminator in Play

By Salvador Rodriguez

As ordered by the World Boxing Council at their most recent convention in Thailand, Golden Boy Promotions is negotiating a possible fight between the first-ranked super middleweight, Marco Antonio Peribán (20-1-1, 13KOs) and James DeGale (17-1, 11KOs), ranked at third. Golden Boy VP Eric Gomez confirmed they are in talks, although there is no date or venue.

The winner would fall in line to get a crack at the current WBC super middleweight champion Sakio Bika.

"That's the fight that is being pursued and the winner could go against Sakio Bika. That could be the comeback fight for Peribán, who has proven himself to be among the best in the division," Gomez said.

[QUOTE=londoner;14044828]Not many people seem to rate DeGale highly but, leaving Ward out of it, he's right in the mix with any of the super middles. He'll beat Periban - if the fight actually gets made.[/QUOTE] DeGale should outbox Periban.

Not many people seem to rate DeGale highly but, leaving Ward out of it, he's right in the mix with any of the super middles. He'll beat Periban - if the fight actually gets made.
