James DeGale is Champion Again - Reclaims The EBU Belt
By Per Ake Persson
On Tuesday, Hennessy Sports and the EBU announced that EBU super middleweight champion James DeGale had relinquished the title as it was not possible to both hold the EBU and the WBC Silver title at the same time.
However today, December 19th, the EBU Council have decided to modify its rules and decided that it is only "full" world champs that cannot hold both titles.
DeGale is therefor reinstated as the EBU champ and his mandatory defense against Mohammed Ali Ndiaye that was announced for January 26 in Bluewater, Kent, is according to the EBU still on.
Whether or not Hennessy Sports will comply with this or already made other plans remains to be an open question.
DeGale has skills, looking forward to watching him in 2013. Is he going to rematch ugly kid any time soon?Comment by flesym on 12-20-2012
degale is a paper champ, i kind of find him frustrating to watch, he needs to step it up in 2013Comment by wja1966 on 12-20-2012
[QUOTE=ScottyM;12836796]Degale is ranked #3 by wbo[/QUOTE] your right I havent seen the wbo rankings this month but he's 3 George Groves is 1st let them fight one more time for the final eliminator but i cant see that happening becuase…Comment by ScottyM on 12-20-2012
[QUOTE=wja1966;12834016]Its hard to see where Degale goes because at world level theres only Abraham he'd have a chance with. Also he's in the WBC ranking not WBO so thats out of the question. Id put him in with Brian Maghee[/QUOTE]…Comment by Camp Beast on 12-19-2012
