James Degale vs Badou Jack has the potential to be on of the fights of the year. Both fighters are keen and hungry, and have stated they are “ready for war”.
It’s the WBC and IBF super-middleweight unification fight, taking place at the Barclays Center in New York.
I expect the fight to begin around 3am, so either set an alarm or brave out the night and face the consequences in the morning.
The show will be broadcasted on Sky Sports One (including the undercards). Surprisingly its not a PPV event, which is refreshing considering the shambles of previous and up and coming ‘PPV shows’.
Fighters current records are as follows. James Degale: 23 (14KO’s)-1-0. Badou Jack: 20 (12KO’s)-1-2.
