IBF super-middleweight champion returns to home soil for first time in three years. JAMES DEGALE defends his IBF super-middleweight title against American Caleb Truax at the Copper Box in London. It is the first time the British boxer has fought in the UK since his TKO victory against Mexican Marco Antonio Periban in November 2014.
DeGale drew with Badou Jack in a closely contested match-up in January which is the last time he has been in the ring. Since then the Swedish boxer has vacated his WBC super-middleweight title – after moving up to light-heavyweight – and it is now in the hands of David Benavidez – who will be next on DeGale’s list.
The fight will take place at the Copper Box in London TONIGHT – Saturday night, December 9. It will be broadcast live on BT Sport and BoxNation. You can also live stream the fight on BT Sport’s website and BoxNation’s website for subscribers. The ring walk for the main event will begin at around 10pm. Coverage begins on BT Sport and Box Nation at 7.45pm.
