Surprised at the odds. Was expecting 1.66 ish

Think Degale may be shot, knows it, gonna retire, and is just going through the motions/getting a last payday here.

Though he says this is gonna set him up for Groves/Calum....

I don't believe it myself.
Report mesmerised April 6, 2018 10:01 PM BST
Tober, De Gale would fight on until he was 60 just to get Groves in the ring around, that is the ultimate grudge match of UK Boxing, a genuine grudge match, it's not like Joshua/Whyte fake hype nonsense, Joshua's clearly been instructed to reignite a desire to fight him now Whyte's under the matchroom umbrella too.

in the ring again*
Report tobermory April 6, 2018 11:11 PM BST
Nah, Joshua/Whyte don't like each other. Think Dilian was with Eddie for the 1st fight wasn't he ? I do think there is an element of Eddie bigging up Dilian for fights with with AJ or Wilder so the real big one can be kicked down the road for another year. 

Degale has achieved a lot since first Groves fight. I doubt he is really bitter towards him. Their 'hatred'was like a comedy double act. They are both decent blokes imo and i can't see anything nasty in it.

Sure, he would like to fight Groves again for a number of reasons. But if he is shot then i can't see him wanting to continue at all.
Report DenzilPenberthy April 7, 2018 12:34 AM BST
He'd have no chance against Groves
Report mesmerised April 7, 2018 10:07 AM BST
Groves beat De Gale in amateurs and in their only Pro fight in a tight split decision, when I've De Gale speak about Groves it sounds venomous, could be just typical boxing talk but I'd have huge motivation to settle that score before retirement, would sell out Wembley if well promoted.
Report Des Pond April 7, 2018 2:12 PM BST
Tobermory is right, the price for Degale is very low. He looked very lacklustre and lacked energy against Truax, who is not normally strong or confident as he was that night. It seems that the Jack fight took a lot out of Degale. If he has prepared properly this time and is in a better frame of mind, he may well have enough to beat Truax. But I wouldn't be backing him at those odds.
Report wisewords April 7, 2018 3:07 PM BST
If DeGale can establish the jab early, he'll cruise to an easy points victory. We'll probably know the winner after they've boxed 3 rounds.

I think Truax is massive at the prices.  Degale got an as whooping last time but more telling was the fact that he seemed to try to avoid any responsibility in his post interview when he said he needs to make some big changes. Totally oblivious of the fact that he was horrid and sat on the ropes being a lazy bastard for most of the fight.

As soon as the final bell went Degale knew he had it. His corner not a bit worried. Within 30 seconds Truax knew he'd lost.

I could of seen it as being close as Truax was rubbish just leaning on from the mid point. Who the hell wants to see a 3rd fight.
