Groves: How Many Times Do I Have To Beat DeGale?

Frank Warren has called on the BBBofC to grant James DeGale an immediate rematch against George Groves. DeGale lost his British super-middleweight title to Commonwealth champion Groves on Saturday night. But the fight ended controversially with Groves winning a contentious majority decision. The two judges who gave Groves the fight did so by a single round.

A despondent DeGale - who slumped to his first professional defeat - also called for a return against his bitter London rival.

"How can a challenger nick a fight on the back foot like that?" said DeGale. "I thought I hit him with the cleaner shots, I hurt him in the ninth round, and the last four rounds I won easy. He can't be proud of that win. He beat me, but he nicked it. I want a rematch as soon as, but we'll have to see what Frank and the Board do."

But Groves insisted that he was under no obligation to give DeGale a rematch.

"How many times do I have to beat this man? After this fight I'll go on to bigger and better things," he said. "He has no titles, he's just come off a loss, I'm pretty sure I can find a better opponent than James DeGale. I've always said, once I've finished with James DeGale I've cleared up the domestic scene and I'm looking at bigger and better things.

"Possibly I can see it happening a few years down the line, when we've both got different versions of the world title. He's got a good promoter, I'm sure he can get there, he'll just have to take a different route from me. I'm taking a more direct one."

[QUOTE=Phatfarm1980]I feel De Gale is going to have his change his attitude towards his opponents if he's going to go far in this game. He's not good enough to act cocky![/QUOTE] This is what it boils down to. Another young guy believing in all the hype that others have created regarding him....

I think two times should be enough. Remember in both fights amatuer & pro, not ONE judge actually had Degale winning. The best he got was a DRAW from one of the 3 judges. The other two had Groves winning.
