DeGale May Train in LA With Jacobs, Fight in October

James DeGale could head to LA for some quality sparring ahead of his European title fight with Piotr Wilczewski.

Former British champion DeGale is still waiting for a date for his challenge against the Polish champion.

Mid September had been pencilled in for the clash, but it may now take place in October.

And DeGale could prepare with a 10-day trip to America, with Daniel "The Golden Child" Jacobs a potential sparring partner.

"I was going to do some work with Darren Barker ahead of his fight with Sergio Martinez, but it looks like he's going to go away for a camp," said DeGale.

"I've got some options over here, and I could work with Tony Bellew and Nathan Cleverly, both of whom I have sparred before.

"But I could also go to the States as well, may be for a week or 10 days, and do some sparring out there."
