Degale is too big for Eubank jr.
Eubank jr should stay at middleweight.

“degale is boring, and vey lazy, expect far more from him,he has also gone imo to the worst promoter in british boxing” – I don’t see how his promoter is responsible for making DeGale lazy and boring. If he was hard working and exciting he’d hvae a title and a big fanbase. He’s not, yet his promoter has him active and in the spotlight somehow.

DeGale has been facing no-hopers ever since Groves schooled him. He’s mostly irrelevant until he gets the balls to face someone in the top 10.

degale is finished move on.

degale is boring, and vey lazy, expect far more from him,he has also gone imo to the worst promoter in british boxing,I think saunders would beat Degale.froch would KO DeGale,Groves would KO DeGale, and we all know what happened to froch v Groves.

These guys seem happy to fight in their chosen weight class, I too would rather see a Groves rematch,the first fight could have been given to Degale it was that close.

How bout groves degale rematch

A lot of hate going on DeGale here. I know he isnt the most likeable of fellows regarding his attitude but he is arguably a stylistic nightmare for pretty much every fighter in his weight division. Although he doesnt have the best offensive arsenal, his defence and wily, evasve movements are the type other fighters dont really want to be a part of.

Fight will never happen. Why would degale risk his high ranking with the sanctioning bodies for a domestic fight with someone not in his weight class? Degale would win anyhow, Saunders just doesn’t hit hard enough.

Mr gav

If Saunders loses it’s not so bad he is taking on a more established fighter at a higher weight for de gale who is chasing the WBO title he is taking on a domestic fighter from a lower weight so frank will have to pay James good money to take this risk. It’s an easy fight to sell but both fighters lack serious power and both are south paws so I’m not betting this will be a fan friendly fight. De gale will have enough to win with his size advantage and will just coast and hug the later rounds winning by UD, I will watch the fight out of interest but won’t pay ppv for it, and undercard will have to be good for fans to get moneys worth

Saunders will used eagle as a stepping stone like groves did. Of course he needs to follow that up will a credible top 10 middleweight.

On paper good fight but will be a snoozer as both lose consentration after round 7…..god knows what the ref does to make them FIGHT!!! Lots of movement by both ,in first half of fight…then movement WITH NO PUNCHING TILL ROUND 12.Fans start boooing from lack of fighting action.Both skillfull boxers,hardcore fans will appricieate the skill on display.Quality fight,but only for connesuers of boxing.

Saunders is still a British level fighter, albeit one with potential. De Gale is Euro level, potential world level if he knuckles down and a higher weight division. This is a mismatch and just Frank talking up 2 fighters.

Posted December 28, 2013 3:45 pm 

Mr gav

I think de gale suffers from knee problems and he has not looked good in a long time but he can do enough to best Saunders. Expect fireworks ( dud ones that don’t go off fight will be zzzzzzz)

DeGale was never a level above Groves … Groves proved that in both the amatuers and in the pro-game. Still DeGale is still a god talent but is a level above Sanders. DeGale and Groves will always be a competative matchup

Posted December 28, 2013 3:27 pm 


De Gale is an Olympic gold medalist and IMO a talent level above Groves. Yet laziness is holding De Gale back. He won’t work hard enough. He was bossing Groves around till he took his foot off the peddle. Let’s see if De Gale can get to the top.

Posted December 28, 2013 3:20 pm 

Mr gav

Fight sounds good on paper but this will be a 12 round snooze fest with both fighters looking awfull. James de gale will get the UD.
