    Yeah, and I'm thinking Badou Jack should probably be thinking the same thing.

    Nothing out there once you hit your mid '30s unless you're a transcendent talent (Floyd, Hopkins) or a big heavyweight.

    Thanks for the memories DeGale, we won’t remember your worst days but your best days! That fight with Jack was amazing, you and him both left it out on the line.

    Rest easy champ.

    Nah.

    That's what people liked to say but I've never seen it.

    He's not very skilled or talented. Also as dumb as an iron post.

    He did extremely well to win a paper title twice.

    He then kept working and winning at small venues, by the time Groves fought Froch at Wembley, Degale was on the undercard and on a good run. He earned his title shot.
    Yeah definitely earned it but I really liked Groves and thought he had a harder career path than Degale. Mainly because he won their fight but took longer to get a title.

    Yeah but I was just thinking more about how he looked with the teeth and the pose at the end. I actually had him in with a shout of winning the fight at the end but the draw was fair too.

    Good luck to him in his retirement.

    His cockiness kind of rubbed me up the wrong way at first, but I got to end up enjoying watching him fight in the end, and went to see him live a few times.

    Gold medal and a World champ, he's had a solid career. Fair play to him.
