Can DeGale Realize World Title Ambitions With Matchroom Sport?

By Iain Langmaid April 16th, 2014 All Boxing Articles

Recently, it was announced that Olympic Gold Medallist of the Beijing Olympics and former European and British Super-Middleweight James DeGale has joined Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Sport Organisation and will also feature on the Carl Froch vs. George Groves rematch at Wembley Stadium on the 31st May.

Matchroom Sport is the third major British boxing promoter that DeGale has signed with since turning professional back in Feburary, 2009 with Frank Warren after capturing the Olympic Gold Medal as a Middleweight.

DeGale turned professional with Team GB team mates Frankie Gavin and Billy Joe Saunders, who would emerge victorious on their debuts and would also capture British and Commonwealth titles.

However, unlike Gavin and Saunders, DeGale parted ways with Frank Warren nor succeeded in winning the prestigious Lonsdale belt outright, as DeGale would first lose his unbeaten record and British title to George Groves, who he wishes to rematch against in the future should the opportunity present itself.

In 2012, DeGale signed with Mick Hennessy’s stable where he would fight four times and clinch the World Boxing Council’s “Silver” 12 stone title and defend it twice in front of the Channel 5 cameras to help increase his exposure after seeing his stock fall follow his loss to Groves, even though he would capture the European 12 stone title and win it twice.

DeGale’s debut on a Matchroom bill will be against the American Brandon Gonzales in a 12 round final eliminator for the International Boxing Federation’s portion of the World Super-Middleweight crown, which is to be contested by Froch and Groves.

The winner of the DeGale vs. Gonzales eliminator gets the mandatory position of fighting the winner of Froch and Groves highly anticipated rematch, unless Groves defeats Froch to set up a most financially alluring trilogy to settle the argument over who is the best Super-Middleweight in Britain.

Regardless of the outcome, the British boxing public will be the winner.

Pacquaio Defeats Bradley In Rematch, Regains WBO Welter Title

By Danny Wilson April 14th, 2014 All Boxing Results

Manny Pacquiao took back the WBO welterweight title last night at MGM Grand's Garden Arena in Las Vegas, gaining a measure of revenge upon Timothy Bradley, who unseated Pacquiao in June, 2012 at the same venue.

After a feeling out period, southpaw Pacquiao was the first to hit the target, rocking the iron-chinned champion in the second round with the first of what was to be many straight left hands.

The third saw good exchanges but Pacquiao's big edge in punching power made a difference until Bradley began timing the challenger effectively in the fourth round, scoring well and even hurting Pacquiao with flush right hands.

Pacquiao seemed to tire in the fifth and Bradley took advantage of the slowdown to find a home for some nice rights. Pacquiao stemmed Bradley's momentum with tight defense until going into blitzkrieg mode and shelling the champion in the corner late in the sixth and seventh frames.

The eighth was a slower round with Pacquiao edging it by landing the harder punches. The ninth and tenth frames heated back up with Bradley trying to turn things around but a motivated Pacquiao threw punches in bunches, putting the champ on the ropes.

Bradley looked for the KO in the final two rounds but just doesn't have the concussive force to prevent the more mobile Pacquiao from posting the higher workrate at a greater accuracy.

Pacquiao suffered a cut from an accidental headclash with Bradley in the 12th but swept the three score cards by margins of 116-112, 116-112 and 118-110. More...
