But the result left some questions unanswered.

Earlier this week, the realisation that the path to a world title bid, for James DeGale, had got decidedly harder, with two huge fights to accommodate before he steps in the ring to bid for a belt, the fighter was back in action last night.

Down in Kent, DeGale took on the hugely durable American, Dyah Davis, in a twelve round contest.

Whilst taking the verdict on all three of the judge?s scorecards, all by the same score of 118-110, DeGale didn?t look as impressive as many thought he should have.

In his post-fight interview DeGale went some way to accepting that, remarking,

‘I’m not fully pleased. I was a bit lazy and switched off a couple of times.’

?I maybe switched off a bit and got hit by a stupid shot.’

‘It’s another 12 rounds under my belt; I’m still learning. He’s an awkward opponent.’


He might have been and perhaps DeGale will look at a re-run of the fight and admire how he had his man in trouble in the second, fourth and fifth rounds but, somehow, got caught by a punch in the eighth round that saw him end up with a bloodied nose and then cruising to the victory.

The win leaves DeGale with a record of 18 wins from 17 fights with that only defeat coming at the hands of his arch-rival George Groves.

  • he looked comfortable, but he always seems to switch off and look lazy and that attitude/fitness/concentration or whatever will see him fail should he ever het a crack at a world title
