DeGale: With or Without a Groves Rematch, I'll Succeed
James DeGale insists his world title dream is still alive regardless of whether George Groves agrees to a rematch following Saturday's contentious majority-decision defeat. The outspoken 2008 Olympic champion was beaten for the second time by his former amateur stablemate following Groves' win in the unpaid ranks.
Groves' hand was raised again at the O2 Arena, with bitter rival DeGale left questioning judges' decisions for a second time. On this occasion it was certainly tight, one judge scoring it even and two choosing Groves by a single point, and it could easily have gone the other way.
"To me it feels like I didn't lose properly. It feels like he's nicked the title off me," DeGale said. "Hopefully we can get the rematch. I don't know. But that's what I want, straight away. He can't be too proud of that win - he nicked it. I'm going to move on to bigger and better things, with or without him."
"i didnt really feel like he won" cunt. it was the judges fault. cunt. im moving on to bigger and better things. cunt. if it were him and georgey groves, he would have to win three fights in a row…Comment by *OG Wenger* on 05-23-2011
Anybody can win a world title nowadays, especially with Frank Warren backing you. He got Kahn a world title only 2-3 fights after he got ktfo by Prescott. Cleverly is now full champion aswell without fighting anybody of note.Comment by SpitBalla on 05-23-2011
Well Dirk is definitely right that Groves did not school DeGale. I think DeGale was getting frustrated by Groves ONLY countering. I still think DeGale is better than Groves, but he did lose, no matter bow close. I can't wait…Comment by TaurusJ27 on 05-23-2011

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK;10588852]Again you are talkin about what he said. Groves also said he'd knock him out in 4 rounds. Hes now saying he "schooled" him. Neither are true. Groves didnt back up anything. Except his scared body all night.[/QUOTE]…Post a Comment/View More User Comments (36)
