JAMES DEGALE-CHRIS EUBANK JR. SET FOR FEBRUARY 23 IN LONDON

 

The very definition of a crossroads fight. :yess 

Former two-time IBF super middleweight titleholder James DeGale will take on Chris Eubank Jr. in a 12-round non-title bout at the O2 Arena in London on February 23.

DeGale, who is rated No. 6 by The Ring at 168 pounds, lost his title to Caleb Truax in December 2017 and won it back in a direct rematch four months later.

Shortly thereafter, the former Olympic champion relinquished his title before knocking off the cobwebs with a third-round knockout in a stay-busy bout.

“After (Eubank) has lost to me I am not sure where he is going to go,” said DeGale (25-2-1, 15 knockouts) at an official press conference on Thursday. “Call this a retirement fight. Whoever loses can knock it on the head. Whoever loses, game over.

“A lot of people think I am in decline but they’re in for a shock.”

Both these guys have looked pretty lackluster lately, not sure who wins.
