James DeGale suffers perforated eardrum, loses teeth against Jack

16 January, 2017, 01:01 | Author: Felix Jensen

The thrilling, high-intensity bout ended in a majority draw.

In what was supposed to be a unification fight, the two best Super Middleweights in the world engaged in a veritable slugfest to determine the very best at 168-pounds.

"I thought I'd done enough, but it was the knockdown", he added.

"We had plans after this fight to move up to Light Heavyweight", said Floyd Mayweather, Jack's promoter. The fights are set to air on Showtime in the United States, check your local listings for start times.

Mayweather said: "Do I want to sign James DeGale?".

"Listen, let's do it again".

Since watching that interview yesterday I think he's seasoned. Look at his face. He burst my ear drum and I lost my teeth. Luckily, Jack was on hand to keep the official upright and to offer him a comforting embrace. "Hopefully I can hang out with James DeGale, he's a cool guy".

The 30-year-old, who was badly marked during the fight, had two teeth knocked out and suffered the first knock down of his career in the 12th. It looked like Jack had been robbed of a clear win in the eyes of these fans, and you can not blame them for being irate at not seeing him get the "W" in this Showtime Championship Boxing telecast. I'd pick Anthony Dirrell to beat Callum Smith if the WBC orders that fight.

"The Ripper" began to make his charge in an electric Round 6 as he buried hooks into DeGale's body and landed a right uppercut that drove the Brit to the ropes. Jack really gave DeGale a royal pounding in the ring.

DeGale really looked to be fighting Jack's fight at this point, on the inside where Jack was at his most unsafe.

His American opponent was more succinct. The fight was poised, tight after about 10 rounds: DeGale was sharper, his punches more intricate, but Jack just kept reading him and countering. He was doing a lot of running. I finished stronger. His knockdown was a flash knockdown. They took the long road, and the timing and circumstances aren't what we all hoped, but this is a big event.
