DeGale to fight Nathan King on December 5th!!

18 11 2009

Olympic Gold medal winning Super-middleweight prospect James DeGale is set to fight former WBU world title challenger Nathan King over 6 rounds on December 5th in Newcastle.
Fighting on the undercard of Amir Khan’s first World title defense, DeGale should face a stern test from Welshman King.

Whilst not the fiercest puncher, King has 12 wins under his belt with 14 losses, though he has only ever been stopped twice. The 28 year-old has been in with some of Britain’s top operators too, including Tony Dodson, Tony Oakey, Kenny Anderson, and more recently former British super middleweight champion Tony Quigley and French no.1 Jean Paul Mendy. King should represent a big step up for DeGale after his victory over 3 fight novice Ally Morrison in his last outing.

“He’s going to be dangerous because he’s fought for titles before,” said DeGale.

“The only people who have stopped him are [former British champion] Tony Quigley and [world-rated Frenchman] Jean Paul Mendy so that tells you that he’s going to be tough.

“If I can do a number on him then it is going to send out a big statement to the domestic division.

“Back in March he fought Kenny Anderson up in Scotland for the Celtic title and I thought he won that fight quite easily, but he lost it on the scorecards.

“This is the kind of fight I need though right now in my career.

“I’m really buzzing in the gym at the moment and I want a challenge because I feel like I’m getting better every day.

“People have only seen about 10% of what I can do at the moment.”
