James DeGale vs Chris Eubank Jr Set For February
James DeGale calls his fight with Chris Eubank Jr a retirement fight, and for DeGale that’s about as accurate a statement as you will see.
Both badly need the win, but DeGale knows a loss will signal the end. Now 32, another defeat at this stage of his career will leave him with nowhere to go but retirement.
Eubank Jr after defeats to Billy Joe Saunders and George Groves in his other high profile fights, also knows to remain credible at world level he must beat DeGale.
DeGale and Eubank Jr meet in a non-title fight at London’s O2 Arena on 23 February live on ITV Box Office.
