DeGale believes he would beat Froch
English boxer James DeGale believes that fellow Englishman and the Super Middleweight king Carl Froch would have no chance if the two ever squared it off against each other inside the ring.
And the youngster is extremely confident he can take out the man who claims to be best ever boxer in the history of Great Britain simply because his style is aptly suited to counter the threat that Froch might possess.
Froch, who is the reigning International Boxing Federation or the IBF and the World Boxing Association or the WBA Super Middleweight Championship titlist, is plotting what his next move in the ring might be after he overcame the challenge of Mikkel Kessler in a grudge match where he avenged the loss he sustained at the hands of the Dane from 2010. DeGale, on the other hand, is also planning his next move as he looks to move up in the title picture as soon as possible and will have a fight against Croatia's Stjepan Bozic.
A domestic bout between the two or even a fight against the former Olympian’s long time rival in the form of George Groves has been mooted. And according to DeGale, he would have a bit too much for The Cobra if the fight did happen because his style is similar to the counter attacking styles of many boxers who have troubled Froch in the past.
Speaking to an English media outlet, DeGale stated that Carl Froch is an absolutely brilliant fighter but it has to be admitted that his style is all wrong for him. He mentioned the names of a few fighters, including Andre Ward and Jermain Taylor who have too much speed and movement and have troubled him inside the ring and he believes this is why he can trouble him.
