James DeGale is growing as a boxer, effectively improving his game for that eventual title fight. He’s become more conscious of his defensive duties, unlike in his first couple of fights, where he was too offensive driven. Anyway, today he is fighting Matthew Barr who is little known, so this should be a formality, or so it seems, on paper.
The growing and improving James DeGale steps up against Matthew Barr.
James DeGale starts very quickly, the moment the bell rings. At times he appears to abandon his defence just to create openings it can exploit in his opponent. This is a very exciting fight, though not the most technical and one I highly recommend you watch.
