DeGale gets European title shot

James DeGale will challenge Poland’s Piotr Wilczewski for the European title in September.

DeGale is keen to make a swift return to the ring after losing the British super-middleweight title to fellow west Londoner George Groves in May.

That defeat against his bitter rival was the first loss of DeGale’s professional career, but a victory over Wilczewski could put the Harlesden fighter back in contention for a world title shot

Wilczewski is ranked third in the world by the WBO and has lost only once in 30 fights.
