James DeGale Aims To Get Knockout Win on Davis

London - James DeGale MBE is out to send a big ‘statement’ to the super middleweight division on November 16th at Glow, Bluewater, live on Channel 5 from 10pm.

The WBC Silver champion hopes to give the fans an emphatic ‘stoppage’ win in defence of his title and show he is ready for anyone.

“It’s time now for me to make a statement because it’s not about treading water, trust me, I do want the big fights and I want the big names,” said the 2008 Olympic Gold medalist.

“I know they’re out there and big nights ahead, but now my only focus is on Davis, November 16th and delivering a big performance for the fans.”

DeGale takes on ‘Dangerous’ Dyah Davis, a former NABF champion who has faced and beaten undefeated fighters and shared the ring with the WBC world super middleweight champion Sakio Bika.

A tough American who boasts 22 wins and will provide a stern test as his namesake suggests.

But the man fondly known as ‘Chunky’ recognises the threat and is focussed on overcoming it in style.

“I’m going to be going in there switched on and full of confidence and try and get that stoppage win,” James said.

“It’s a great venue and I want to go in there and put on a performance for all the fans - I want the big names and the big nights and I know the first step to that is doing a good job on Davis.

“I'm not overlooking him, if anything I'm more focussed on him because I know where a good performance here can lead me."

DeGale has fallen off the radar a bit but is a solid contender and if his only (disputed decision) conqueror George Groves can shine against Froch - by winning or pressing him hard - Chunky will be right in the…

Chunky needs to step up opposition after this. Really disappointing run versus unexciting fighters. He's good enough to mix it with some of the better fighters in the division, but will have to travel to get the fights he wants.…
