You can’t beat a good domestic fight and tonight two of Britain’s finest meet in the highly anticipated super middleweight bout with a lot of pride on the line as well as the IBO championship.
James DeGale has billed this as The Retirement Fight alluding to the fact that him or his counterpart Chris Eubank Jr should “knock it on the head” should they lose. In truth, neither fighter is likely to retire after this fight, especially Eubank Jr who is not going to stop any time soon.
For DeGale, it is slightly different as he had a very difficult 2017. He went without a win in two gruelling fights – first against Badou Jack in which he drew and then suffered the second loss of his career in another 12 rounder against Caleb Truax, surrendering the IBF belt.
It is a tough fight to call, and should be a cracking event, a decent ring walk time also helps (10pm), here is the tale of the tape and a tonights betting odds via Paddy Power.
