James DeGale vs Chris Eubank Jr. Betting Preview
DeGale will aim to frustrate Eubank with his superior skillsetJames DeGale (25-2-1, 15 KOs) made three defences of the IBF 168lb strap but then had a significant operation on his shoulder after a brutal war with Badou Jack (majority draw) in January 2017. He lost his world title to Caleb Truax in the biggest upset of 2017, but claimed he rushed back from surgery too quickly. The belt was reclaimed in a rematch last April but DeGale's victory was far from convincing. "Chunky" kept warm with a third-round stoppage victory over little-known Colombian Fidel Monterrosa Munoz back in the summer.
A 2008 Olympic gold medallist and former two-time IBF champion, James DeGale at his best is a slick, switch-hitting stylist. He is regarded as an intelligent boxer with the better jab and better footwork. Chunky has plenty of experience at the highest level and his position as the underdog comes as a surprise, but is perhaps an indication of the effect an 11-year career in the fight game can have. In three fights since a dramatic draw against Badou Jack in January 2017, the Olympic gold medallist has shown signs of a punishing career.
Eubank Jr. has come unstuck against the two best boxers he has facedChris Eubank Jr (27-2, 21 KOs) returns a year after being convincingly beaten on points by George Groves. Since then, he has fought only once, beating JJ McDonagh (16-4-0) inside three rounds back in the summer. His two attempts to step up in quality against the now retired Groves (unanimous decision) and Billy Joe Saunders (split decision) ended in sound defeats. Anyway, the 29-year-old has halted eight of the 10 opponents faced since the Billy Joe Saunders fight on November 2014. That run included a TKO victory over Nick Blackwell and a 3rd round KO over the previously unbeaten fighter Avni Yildrim. He h
Eubank Jr. is a physically gifted fighter blessed with tremendous athleticism. His quick hands and combination punching is a thing of beauty and he has now teamed up with new trainer Nate Vasquez from the Mayweather Boxing Gym. His work rate and pace are likely to trouble DeGale, particularly if the fight progresses into the later rounds. Many experts believe that the Brighton boxer will fight a boxer who has superior pure boxing ability than him. Furthermore, DeGale has never been stopped before and Eubank isn’t a natural super-middleweight, so doesn’t carry as much power. Although Eubank's style makes him dangerous against anyone, it’s whether he can implement that style against the elite boxers in the division that remains the big question.
