|James 'Chunky' DeGale.|
This Saturday night Britain’s Southpaw Promoted by Hennessey Sports James ‘Chunky’ Degale (27) who is 16-1 10Ko’s makes a quick return to the ring Vs orthodox Slovenian Stjepan Bozic (38) who is 32-6 17Ko’s, this fight is the 4th consecutive fight in 8 months for the 2008 British Beijing Gold Medalist. Since losing his British Title Vs rival George Groves in 2011 James Degale has been a man on a mission he won, defended than vacated his European 168lb title breaking his way into the World Rankings and Winning the Vacant WBC Silver 168lb Super Middleweight Title in late 2012 Vs Fulgencio Zuniga.
Chunky is making the 1st Defence against Former WBF Champion Stjepan Bozic, his opponent is Slovenian born residing in Croatia who’s most notable fights to date are defeats Vs Dmitiri Sartison TKO in Round 6 (2009) and Arthur Abrahams TKO in Round 2 (2011) with Stejpan injuring his hand. Very experienced and coming off 2 consecutive Knockout Victories in 2012, Bozic seems to be competitive and suitable opponent for Degale.
James Degale seems to have built up some great Momentum going into Saturdays fight keeping busy and winning in style leading to some including himself and his Promoter publicly saying they hope Degale to be fighting against one of the elite 168lb Super Middleweight Champions Carl Froch or America’s Andre Ward very soon, most likely early-middle 2014. Expect to see a very sharp Degale on Saturday night who will try to look very impressive vs Bozic who at 38 isn’t exactly a spring chicken in the sport, regardless of age he still brings experience and durability to the table making for a watchable fight James Degale is extremely talented who seems too have matured drastically in recent months leading a few to believe he is capable of big things in his career. If bozic can survive the early round james could well be in for some rounds but if 100%, I would expect a victory for Chunky.
