MAJOR SHOCK AS DEGALE LOSES BY MAJORITY DECISION!

 

In London!  Challenger was 16-1 to 100-1 in some places.

Wonder why Showtime didn't pick this one up. Hate it for Degale, but it looks as though he's showing signs of declining...maybe. I'm aware that he had shoulder surgery, and I'm not sure why he felt he needed to come back so quickly.

 

Truax isn't a pushover, I believe everyone knew this from jump. Congrats to Truax. I saw the highlights and Degale looked a little soft around the waste, so I'm sure the weight cut bothered him. Truax was relentless in there.

Man listen! With every round that passed, you can see layers of DeGale of careers peeling off. He got touched up somethin' serious in that fight.

In addition to the decline, I think DeGale was lookin pass Truax talkin about other opponents/matchups. Respect your opponent

Degale has talent. I think he overlooked Degale as well

He has talent and yet he seems to have begun to feel he can just show up and get it done. He can box, punch, slip when he focuses on being defensive, gets up off the deck and takes a good shot. Hre seemed to have over looked badou jack as well. Too bad Jack moved up because they talked rematch. Floyd dissed the judges right in their faces that night in the ring. Jack definitely won that fight 7-5 at least
