James DeGale (14-1, 9KOs) will defend his WBC Silver super middleweight championship on March 23rd against Pablo Farias (24-2, 16KOs) at Glow, Bluewater in Kent. The fight will be televised by WealthTV and streamed on Faraias has won five in a row since being stopped by Arthur Abraham in five rounds last January in Germany.

DeGale's promoter Mick Hennessy wants to get his boxer in line for a shot at WBC full champion Andre Ward (26-0, 14KOs) by the end of the year. DeGale will likely have to wait his turn, with Sakio Bika winning a WBC final eliminator on Saturday night to climb up the ladder for a mandatory fight with Ward.

“By the end of this year, we are looking to become the mandatory challenger for WBC world champion Andre Ward," Hennessy told The Sun.

JAMES is not big enough name to attract Ward - who is the best fighter his beaten - he has lost to Groves never fought in the States in this game the Tv Companies have to be interested don't think anyone in the States even knows who he is. His best bet is to go after Abrahams or winner of Kessle...

Financially, a Froch fight is the best option for DeGale. Even if he loses v Kessler, his standing and popularity will be through the roof.
