On Saturday, James DeGale makes his long-awaited return to action in the UK.

After winning the IBF super-middleweight title, 31-year-old DeGale has been fighting in the US.

This Saturday, DeGale will be returning to action at the Copper Box Arena, in East London.

DeGale will be making a defence of his title against the number 15 contender Caleb Truax.

The contest for DeGale, who has a professional record that reads 23-1-1 with 14 wins coming by way of knockout, should be a little easier than his last contest, although we should never take for granted a fighter like Truax that has a record that reads 28-3-1 with 18 wins coming by knockout.

Last time out DeGale fought a brutal war with Badou Jack, a fight that ended in a majority draw decision.

The fight saw DeGale require surgery on his nose and shoulder as well as having his front teeth put back in place after his bridge was knocked out.

It?ll be good to see DeGale back in action in the UK once again.
