Warren Responds: DeGale Under Contract Until 2013

In an earlier report on BoxingScene.com, Olympic gold medallist James DeGale (11-1, 8KOs) announced his split from manager/promoter Frank Warren. The 24-year-old shot to prominence four years ago by winning middleweight gold at the Beijing Games.

DeGale turned pro later that year and joined Warren's promotional stable along with fellow Olympians Billy Joe Saunders and Frankie Gavin. He suffered his first loss as a pro last May, when rival George Groves won a majority decision. Groves later signed with Warren.

DeGale confirmed his split from Warren on Friday in a statement released to Press Association Sport by the boxer's solicitors, Blick & Co.

The European super-middleweight champion from Harlesden, London, said in the short statement: "I think it is time for both of us to move on."

However, BoxingScene has been advised by Frank Warren Promotions that DeGale signed a contract extension in 2011, which retains him until April 14, 2013.

BoxingScene has obtained a copy of a letter from the British Boxing Board of Control dated November 23, 2011 - and the letter confirms that Warren has a contract extension with DeGale until April of 2013.

I get the feeling that Warren hasn't lived up to his side of the deal, which Degale is only trying to highlight via the publicity machine. James should be careful though, you mess with Warren and you don't get paid,…

A contract has to be honoured by both parties. If he signed that contract, which was part of securing another fight - and was not paid for that fight, then it's null and void. You can't cherry pick which bits…

If the rumours are true and fish eyes isn't paying his fighters, I can't blame Chunky to look after his buture and fright with a promoter that pays him whats in his contract

im guessing gay boy doesnt like the opponents fish eyes is setting him up with. the gay one probably wants big names like bute, ward, stieglitz and not the 5ft 7 italian frank has lined up.
