James DeGale States: Cash Flow Has Been a Problem

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

JAMES DEGALE admits he has been a pain to live with recently – and that could be bad news for his opponent on Saturday.

The Londoner defends his European super-middleweight title against Frenchman Hadillah Mohoumadi in Kent after a frustrating year of inactivity.

DeGale, 26, says boxing – or a lack of it – left him depressed as a contract dispute with former promoter Frank Warren limited him to just one bout in 12 months.

The 2008 Olympic gold medallist, now with Mick Hennessy, admits he even considered other jobs while his boxing career was in limbo.

He said: “The last year has been miserable. My mum and dad got most of the grief.

“I can see how fighters go off the rails and go on the booze because it was so stressful.

“I was going to become a personal trainer in my gym, just to get a bit of money.

“A lot of people think I’m a multi-millionaire but that’s not the case. When you’re not fighting, you’re not earning. I’ve got a mortgage and cash flow has been a problem.”

DeGale v Mohoumadi, C5, Sat 10pm

It's sad that the guys who take all the punches and the long term damage, aren't the guys with the serious money like the promoters. Ass backwards if you ask me! :nonono:
