James DeGale ’20 percent better’ since winning world title

IN the Diamond Suite at Emirates Stadium, where membership costs upwards of £30,000 a season to watch Arsenal, Gunners fan James DeGale confirmed his November 28 IBF super-middleweight title defence against Lucian Bute. The contest will take place at the Videotron Centre – a new arena – in Quebec City, where the former champion will enjoy home advantage. “You can see what kind of man I am I’m going to Canada to give Lucian Bute a chance to box for my world title,” said DeGale. “The way I’m feeling, I’m in top shape, it’s going to be hard to beat me. My journey is just starting, his is coming to an end.
