DeGale back with Euro title shot
Super middleweight prospect James DeGale looks to rebound from his decision loss to rival George Groves with a European title shot against Piotr Wilczewski in September.
British super middleweight prospect James DeGale gets the chance to put his career back on track in September with a European title shot at Polish holder Piotr Wilczewski.
The 25-year-old west Londoner has not fought since losing his unbeaten record and British belt on a contentious split decision to bitter local rival George Groves in May.
"Challenging for the European title is a fantastic opportunity to get myself back in the big picture," said former Olympic gold medallist DeGale. “The Groves fight is in the past, I still believe I beat him, but I'm a positive person.
“Now I'm focused on the future and a win will put me in a great position for a world title. My manager Frank Warren brought Amir Khan back from a devastating knockout loss to a world title in only three fights, so I know he can do it for me."
Southpaw DeGale (10-1, 8 knockouts) will be on home soil against 32-year-old Wilczewski (30-1, 10 KOs), ranked three by the WBO after claiming the European and Intercontinental title in March.
“This is a make or break fight for James,“ said Warren, close to signing up DeGale for another three years. “He's got a big opportunity in front of him against Wilczewski and now has to go out there a deliver the goods and show the fans what he can do."
