I thought that would signify that I haven't made my mind up at all - but obviously it didn't

I don't really care if he's arrogant, bashful, dopey, sleepy or flipping grumpy, his personality and what he has to say means nothing to me

For what it's worth I wish him well and will support him - like I do all British boxers. My point is that I won't love or hate him based on his 'personality'

Im going to leave it a while before I jump on the hate train.

The main problem I see is not his ****iness, you can be as ****y as you want if you back it up in my mind, but it is style than concerns me. He has a style which is fine for Am boxing, but in the pro game if you want fans to part with their hard earned cash you got to give them something, that tap and run tactic wears thin.

Adapting to the pro style is becoming harder than ever thank to the ridiculous way Am boxing in run and scored. The sooner they change it the better.

Argh, Degayle is trying to gain attention for himself, adding the same characteristics like a naseem hamed etc.

gavin and saunders will make more impact in the pro ranks imo
not many amateurs blast u out.

i reckon he'll be a respectable puncher in the pro's meself.

he doesn't look like a total pea shooter.

but he's not a complete hit and run merchant.

he can stand his ground and box with u to.

he changes it up and that's one of the things i like about him.

degale can punch, his KO record is very respectable for an amateur.

It is his mouth that ****es me off.

He has already accused George Groves of trying to make a living off his back - arrogant ****.
