I?m still perplexed!

What do you mean that?s not unusual?

I just can?t get my head around why Carl Froch isn?t prepared to give James DeGale a chance to fight him when DeGale is the mandatory challenger for Froch?s IBF belt.

DeGale?s camp have guaranteed the champ a mega-purse but still the Nottingham fighter isn?t that interested.

But is there a light at the end of the tunnel?

There could well be, with DeGale taking on Marco Antonio Periban, on the undercard of the Tony Bellew v Nathan Cleverly fight, Froch has reportedly remarked,

?If he produces a heck of a performance I?ll have a look again.?

Which, on the surface, gives DeGale hope until you remember that Periban has lost two out of his last three fights.

Therefore, if DeGale takes him out early Froch will say it was only to be expected and if DeGale is taken a few rounds his performance will be rubbished.

It really is a no-win situation if you ask me!
