Jesse Hart Breaks Down DeGale vs. Periban Clash

By Ben Jacobs

Philadelphia's talented super middleweight, Jesse Hart (15-0, 12 KOs), is preparing for his own fight on December 13 against Samuel Miller (28-9, 25 KOs).  Nevertheless, he is keeping an eye on activity in his division on the other side of the pond, particularly with James DeGale versus Marco Antonio Peribán looming tonight.

Hart will be looking to move from prospect to contender over the next year and believes he will face a British fighter at some point, given the abundance of British talent at 168lbs.

"That will be a good fight.  James DeGale has phenomenal skills," Hart told BoxingScene.  

"He's a very, very slick talented fighter, he's a southpaw, that's dangerous, plus he has speed. Peribán comes to knock you out and he can punch.  So you have one good fighter in James DeGale and one fighter who can punch in Peribán, so that always makes for an exciting match up. 

"One wrong move for DeGale and it could be all over but if Peribán comes too relaxed, DeGale is going to beat him every round and stop him in the later rounds."

Hart travels to California on Sunday to train at Freddy Roach's gym for two weeks before closing camp back in Philadelphia.  A full interview will follow.
