DeGale: With a Gun To My Head, I'd Pick Groves To Win
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

"Forgotten man" James DeGale is ready to launch himself back into the big time when he auditions for the right to fight the winner of Saturday's rematch between Carl Froch and George Groves.

The 2008 Olympic gold medalist has found himself in the wilderness for much of the past two years as promotional changes and lacklustre matchmaking impacted on his career.

However, the likeable Harlesden motor-mouth has managed to work his way towards a final eliminator for the IBF super-middleweight title against Brandon Gonzales on Saturday, knowing victory will secure him a shot at the winner of the Wembley main event.

"You could say I've become the forgotten man in the last couple of years but I'm in a fantastic position now, boxing a final eliminator in front of 80,000 at Wembley Stadium," he told Press Association Sport.

"I win this and I'm back in the big time."

The 28-year-old added: "It could be a win-win night for me because obviously if I win this fight then I box the winner of Froch v Groves.

"The winner has to meet me within 120 days but I've got my own fight to deal with before that on Saturday. Brandon Gonzales is a good fighter, an unbeaten, confident American who is coming here thinking he's going to win.

"I'm in for a hard night's work but I'm feeling confident and just can't wait to do the business."

DeGale's only professional defeat came against long-time rival Groves in 2011 and, should his fellow Londoner beat Froch on Saturday, the pair will clash again.

"Froch v Groves will be a close one," he said. "I'm sitting on the fence but with a gun to my head I'd probably go with Groves.

"You never know, because there are so many ifs and buts. That's why the fight is so intriguing: no-one knows."
