DeGale-Sanavia To Denmark; DeGale To Join Sauerland?

By Per Ake Persson

According to sources in Italy, EBU super middleweight champion James DeGale will indeed defend his title in Denmark, against Italian mandatory challenger Cristian Sanavia. Sources in Italy state the location is a done deal.
 
However, while Round Zero of Italy won the purse bids, the promoter of the fight will be Sauerland Event.
 
As BoxingScene.com previously reported, the date of the fight is April 21 - at least according to the European Boxing Union - but that has yet to be confirmed.
 
Kalle Sauerland confirmed to Danish sources that Mikkel Kessler, as planned, will take on WBO super middleweight champ Robert Stieglitz on April 14 - which kills the rumor of Kessler facing Brian Magee for the WBA's interim-title with Sanavia-DeGale as the co-feature.

James DeGale - according to Italian sources - could be on his way to being signed to a promotional deal with Sauerland.
