    Default James DeGale To Trigger Rematch Clause With Caleb Truax

    Degale took a real beating but judging from his latest picture he has recovered well from the cuts and bruises.

    De Gale needs to make sure he has recovered from his injuries otherwise he will lose again.

    I am glad he is staying with Jim McDonald who is a good trainer.

    At the start of last year De Gale was saying he would make millions by beating Jack, Groves and Smith in the year but because of injuries and circumstances his career could be over. How things change so quickly.

    I think the rematch will be the same outcome.
    I reckon Degale might be finished mentally, the Badou Jack fight might have knocked it all out of him.

    DeGale should take a confidence builder first.

    His last fight was supposed to be that, if he goes any lower he may as well stop.

    True, I was thinking a Paul Smith type.

    If De gale loses to him he would retire but if he wins then he may think should have gone for the title fight and I do not know if the new champ would wait that long anyway.

    I think De Gale should have a closed fight, possibly with Paul Smith to see if he has anything left at the top level. If he does he would carry on if he loses/takes a beating, he should announce his retirement.

    DeGale in truth looked shopworn he was terrible he got beat by nothing more than above average club fighter,! I could not believe how bad James performed lucky it was not Eubank or Groves he was facing that night he would have been KO simple.

    DeGale did look shopworn , but we shouldn't take away from Truax's performance, I think the guy deserves a bit of respect. DeGale couldn't really wait , I don't think it's his choice when he re-activates his rematch clause , it's either "do you want it or not?" he had no choice really. Either he's at the level or not and there's only one way to find out .
    Also , i don't like tearing into people for the sake of it , but I don't think he gets anything whatsoever from his trainer. It wouldn't hurt him to go with a strict disciplinarian who fucking tells him exactly how it is . Somebody who can stand up to his ego.
    He could come back and be a force, but it'll take a lot of humility, hard work and soul searching. without knowing the guy personally, i don't know if he's capable of that.

    Jim McDonald is a tough trainer who may actually over work his boxers. I think it is more the wear and tear of his body that is the question.

    I don't really want to slag him off because he seems like an OK guy and I loved him as a Boxer.
    But as a trainer, I think he's a bit clueless and lost at the top level. I also think that maybe DeGale gets his way a bit too much with him.
    If DeGale has any designs on being a top level , he needs a top level trainer. Too easy to say Ingle because of what he's done with BJS, and McCracken probably wouldn't work with his history with Froch although it shouldn't really be a barrier. I dunno, Virgil Hunter maybe?

    Thinking about what I just wrote, I reckon McCracken would be a great move.

    Hunter would mould Degale to perfection.

    He should consider trying something else as he's trainer was not giving him the right advice in this particular fight.

    DeGale has never impressed me. He could have arguably lost to Dirrell, Medina and Jack. Although I had him winning the first 2, struggling with Medina was not a good look. 2 fights later and Truax got it done.
