DeGale's Return: Eyes Brian Magee and Kenny Anderson

James DeGale says if he doesn't get a rematch with George Groves he wants an American - or Brian Magee.

DeGale lost his British super-middleweight title to Groves last weekend at the 02 Arena.

The majority decision was a controversial one, and DeGale demanded an immediate return.

But Groves has so far been reluctant to grant him his wish.

"It was a close fight, a controversial fight, and I thought I won it," said DeGale.

"But there's no point crying over spilt milk, you have to get up, dust yourself off and keep going. Whatever isn't the breaking of me is the making of me.

"I don't think he wants a rematch, because he knows what will happen. If I started faster I'd have probably had him (knocked) out.

"I want an American name that someone knows, or Brian Magee who fought for a world title and is European champion, or Kenny Anderson, who had Groves out and only has himself to blame for losing."

Meanwhile Groves has hinted that he could meet DeGale again - but when they have both had more fights.

es predict a rematch in the future, where he plans to put a serious hurt on DeGale.

"To use DeGale's own words, now I'm moving on to bigger and better things," he told The Times.

"At the moment the general feedback I'm getting from people is that I shouldn't give him a rematch.

"But certainly he'll make a return, our paths will cross again – and next time I'll ruin him."
