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.

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.

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.

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.
