James DeGale is Confident: I Can Beat Carl Froch!

By Luke Furman

WBC silver super middleweight champion James DeGale (14-1, 9KOs) believes he has what it takes to defeat IBF beltholder Carl Froch (30-2, 22KOs). DeGale has closely followed the career of Froch, and has a lot of respect for the Nottingham star, but also sees exposable flaws.

DeGale wants to stay busy in 2013, with at least four to five fights against good opponents. Once that stretch of activity takes place, he wouldn't pass up the opportunity to fight Froch if the chance came around.

"Carl Froch is a great fighter but I see things where I think that I will give him a hard night's work and I feel that I can beat him. But like I said, he's got stuff to do and I've got stuff to do," DeGale told Sky Sports Ringside.

"If I can stay busy for the next nine months, have four or five fights with some good names and keep on performing - then why not? It's a natural fight to make."

"He's been beat. He struggles with movement, he struggles with hand speed, and I think I've got that. Give me a couple of more fights and I think it would be a great fight."

[QUOTE=D-MiZe;12858015]DeGale's ceiling isn't as high as we once thought... I think he peaks as a contender and that won't be for a few more years, Froch stops him early at this point. [B]Can't see DeGale vs Froch happening until Groves…

DeGale's ceiling isn't as high as we once thought... I think he peaks as a contender and that won't be for a few more years, Froch stops him early at this point. Can't see DeGale vs Froch happening until Groves…

[QUOTE=The Weebler II;12856187]Not going to criticise DeGale for wanting to fight the best or believing in himself but he might be better picking another champion for his title shot e.g. Abraham.[/QUOTE] i doubt he beats him either.

Not going to criticise DeGale for wanting to fight the best or believing in himself but he might be better picking another champion for his title shot e.g. Abraham.
