James DeGale says he is ready to move on after suffering a career first defeat against bitter rival George Groves last month.
DeGale lost a his British and Commonwealth title clash with Groves via split decision over 12 rounds and insists he is getting over it.
"Time is a healer and I’m getting over it," DeGale told Sky Sports.
"Because it was controversial, because it was close and because the majority of people I’ve spoken to thought I won, I am dealing with it a bit better.
"It didn’t sink in until the next day when I woke up and I was hoping... but I just felt me eye, it hurt, and then it hit me.
"It was so close; it wasn’t like I got knocked out, I lost by one point... one point - and that’s what upset me the most.
"Going into the last round, I was up! To lose by a point is hard.
"But time is a healer and I’m getting over it."
DeGale, who expects to fight again in September, said he will keep faith in trainer Jim McDonnell.
