New IBF super-middleweight world champion James DeGale has signed a deal with influential American adviser Al Haymon.
Harlesden’s 2008 Olympic champion will join fellow UK fighters Amir Khan and Carl Frampton – as well as Floyd Mayweather jr – in being advised by Haymon.
DeGale, 29, won his world title in May by defeating Andre Dirrell, another of Haymon’s stable, on points in Chicago.
On Friday, he tweeted: “Delighted to announce I’ve joined forces with Al Haymon. Great things ahead of me.”
It is believed DeGale’s promoters, Matchroom Sport, will continue to work with him despite Haymon’s involvement.
