IBF Super Middleweight Championship
Last night James DeGale (24-2-1, 14 Kos) redeemed himself at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. DeGale regained his IBF Super Middleweight Title that he lost last December to Caleb Truax (29-4-2, 18 Kos) by winning a 12 round unanimous decision.
Sh*t wasn’t pretty but his performance was much improved from his previous outing. Caleb pretty much stuck to the same game plan as the last time, aggressive pressure at all time but the difference this time is that DeGale defended in the pocket much better with better movement.
This was a do or die bout for DeGale. Win or retire. He had no other option but to come out on top on this night. He again took some heavy shots but this time he didn’t fold he kept his work rate up just enough to seal the deal.
With this win and IBF Title back in his possession, DeGale is back “On Top” but to hold on to his belt my Dude is gonna have to step his game up and sharpen up his skills on his next Title defense cause them Dudes next in line in the Division are real hungry to snatch that belt from his hands. Real Talk!
Until then congratulations on your win Champ, now stay working.
