DeGale on comeback trail

FOCUSED: DeGale

JAMES DEGALE looks to resurrect his career in September. The former British super-middleweight champion will challenge for the European title in September against Poland's Piotr Wilczewski.

The north west Londoner is on the comeback trail after losing the British title on points to arch rival George Groves in May.
Wilczewski, who won the vacant European and WBO Intercontinental titles in March, has lost only once in 30 fights.
"Challenging for the European title is a fantastic opportunity to get myself back in the big picture," DeGale said.
"I've been hard in training since my last fight and I'm ready to box tomorrow if I need to, come September I'll be in great shape."
DeGale's loss to Groves in May was contentious. The Londoner had been heavily favoured to beat his long-term rival, but lost on a split decision.
"The fight with Groves is in the past, I still believe I beat him, but I'm a positive person and now I'm focused on the future and a win will put me in a great position for a world title," he said.
