DeGale Plans To Make A Statement Against ‘Dangerous’ Dyah

WBC Silver super middleweight champion James DeGale MBE plans to send out a big statement on November 16th when he defends his title against Dangerous’ Dyah Davis at Glow in Bluewater, Kent, England.


DeGale hopes to give the fans an emphatic ‘stoppage’ win and show he is ready to face the very best.


“It’s time now for me to make a statement because it’s not about treading water, trust me, I do want the big fights and I want the big names,” said the 2008 Olympic Gold medalist.


“I know they’re out there and big nights ahead, but now my only focus is on Davis, November 16th and delivering a big performance for the fans.”


DeGale takes on Davis, a former NABF champion who has faced and beaten undefeated fighters and shared the ring with the WBC super middleweight champion Sakio Bika.


A tough American who boasts 22 wins will provide a stern test as his ring name suggests.











But the man fondly known as ‘Chunky’ recognizes the threat and is focused on overcoming it in style.


“I’m going to be going in there switched on and full of confidence and try and get that stoppage win,” James said.


“It’s a great venue and I want to go in there and put on a performance for all the fans - I want the big names and the big nights and I know the first step to that is doing a good job on Davis.


“I’m not overlooking him, if anything I’m more focused on him because I know where a good performance here can lead me."
