First super middleweight James DeGale relinquished the EBU title to concentrate on defending the WBC Silver championship as he, according to the EBU rules, couldn't hold the two belts at the same time.
 
Then the EBU Council looked into the matter and by a large majority voted for a more liberal interpretation of the rules and DeGale was reinstated as EBU super middleweight champ.

It will now be George Groves and Mohamed Ali N'diaye, already mandatory challenger, that fight for the EBU title with and the EBU have set January 4 at noon as the deadline for purse bids.
