What next for former IBF world champion James DeGale?

EDDIE HEARN, the former promoter of James DeGale, has commented on the super-middleweight’s shock defeat that saw the Briton lose his IBF world title to Caleb Truax.

Hearn who was DeGale's former promoter feels he wasn't properly advised and say's this fight was too early for him.

“I think I would [work with him again]. James, I see him as a friend. But I just think that the way he’s managed his career has been a shambles from start to finish. Said Hearn.

He’s been everywhere. He was with [Frank] Warren, then [Mick] Hennessy, then he’s come to us, then he signed with [Al] Haymon. He’s not boxing often, then he’s boxing in the States.

Then he’s back in the UK. Now he’s signed with Warren again,” Hearn told Boxing News.

DeGale had a one-fight deal with Frank Warren, with a view to possibly continuing the arrangement in future.

Hearn suggested, “The worst thing in boxing you can be is a free agent. He thinks it’s the greatest thing in the world being a free agent.

No one’s looking after him, no one’s got his back. He didn’t have a rematch clause in that fight. This is bread and butter stuff. Why didn’t he have a rematch clause? Because people are sloppy. Because he hasn’t got a promoter who’s looking out for him, caring for him, planning for him.

If he had woken up this morning and they had a rematch clause, DeGale-Truax is a big fight, the rematch.

“Now he’s in total wilderness.”
