JAMES DeGALE is back on track for a world title tilt this year – thanks to England football physio Gary Lewin.

Lewin, who previously worked for Arsenal, has helped the WBC silver super-middleweight champ overcome an irritating injury called Gilmore’s Groin which has hampered him in recent years.

Now DeGale, who will be back in the ring in Bristol on March 1 against an opponent yet to be named, can fight without any ­worries after finally delivering a KO to the fear factor.

His trainer Jim McDonnell said: “He has been fighting with ­handcuffs on because he was ­unable to twist quickly and bend.

“People were complaining that he was leaning on the ropes too much, but there was a reason for that.

“The injury was a baffling one, but, after tests by Gary, it was ­diagnosed as Gilmore’s Groin – similar to an injury that Arsenal player Theo Walcott once had.

“Gary has been great. He used to work at Arsenal and I’m a great Gunners fan like him, so it was marvellous to have him sorting things out.

“James is now looking better than ever and he sparred really well this week to make me think that ­everything is now okay.”

After his March bout, DeGale has been ordered to face Swedish-­Gambian fighter Badou Jack in a WBC title eliminator, with the ­winner taking on champion Sakio Bika in a mandatory ­challenge.

The 27-year-old Brit said: “I am feeling absolutely great, because before I was getting into the ring knowing I wasn’t 100 percent fit.

“Believe me, it was quite a ­distraction, but now that kind of worry has gone.

“I’m going to show that, once and for all, my problem is behind me. It’s great that I am no longer having to worry about it.

“So now, knowing that I’m fully fit, I’m back to my old self and full of confidence.”

DeGale, whose fight will be shown live on Channel 5, added: “This will definitely be my year, this is my time and I want to make the most of it.

“I know I am on track for that world title chance and I aim to make the most of it. I am on course for the top and I mean to get there.”
