By Nick Parkinson

JAMES DEGALE’S next defence of his newly-won European super-middleweight title is likely to be against Cristian Sanavia (45-5, 13KOs).

DeGale scraped through his first fight since losing his unbeaten record to George Groves in May.

He beat Pole Piotr Wilczewski by a majority decision of 115-113, 115-113 and 114-114 in Liverpool on Saturday.

DeGale’s leaky defence kept the fight a close-run thing, but he is now set to step up when he faces Italian former WBC world super-­middleweight champion Sanavia, 36, possibly in December.

DeGale said: “I’m pleased with it and I had to dig deep. Sometimes I make things a bit hard for myself and maybe I was a bit lazy.

“I was a bit eager to impress and the doubters were there. I was a bit nervous early on but I’m European champion.

“I looked good in parts and I thought I won by a couple of rounds, but I need to be out more often so hopefully I can defend this title in December.”

Huh, thought Sanavia had retired several years ago. I guess he might teach DeGale a few tricks before the eventual KO

DeGale needs a better coach, he has too many flaws that better boxers will expose. He has great talent, but doesn't seem to be able to change strategy when something isn't working.

you need 2 remember aswell guys he lost by what 1 point v grooves he really shudda won. just wish he was at it that night and he coulda went a long way undefeated until ward of course. but a degale v ward in 3 years time if degale progresses will be a great boxing match
