DeGale to fight on September 18th

6 07 2010

James DeGale will return to action on September 18th as part of the “Magnificent Seven” mega bill in Birmingham. Defending his WBA International super-middleweight title, the former Olympic Gold medallist is likely to be fighting a “Top Five” ranked British opponent, according to

That would mean his opponent is likely to be one of experienced Tony’s Quigley or Dodson, who both recently withdrew from the Prizefighter tournament. Speaking to, DeGale said:

“To be honest, I am the best domestically already. Me and Frank have had a chat and some names have been mentioned, a few of which are from the North West without giving too much away!! But I know I can beat anyone out there at the minute domestically, and I will prove that by taking out who ever is put in front of me.

“It’s great to have stepped up to championship level, but this fight isn’t going the distance.

“I don’t care who I fight next because they are getting knocked out.”
