As previously reported on BoxingScene.com, the next opponent for EBU super middleweight champion James DeGale will be Frenchman Hadillah Mohoumadi, 13-2-1, who is reigning French champion but comes in off a loss to Nikola Sjekloca (EBU # 3). The fight takes place on October 13 at the Glow, Bluewater in the UK.
DeGale's new promoter, Hennessy Sports, first tried to get the EBU to recognize Finland´s Niko Jokinen, unbeaten in 18 but untested, as the opponent but he was turned down as he is not yet ranked in the EBU ratings. Tags: James DeGale , DeGale-Mohoumadi , DeGale vs Mohoumadi
