I'm not sure how much of a fact that is. So he's been slightly more active, big deal. Hardly anyone knows he fought last weekend.

You see i think he hasn't took the easy route and is willing to fight anyone so he deserves plaudits for that. he is an arsehole and arrogant but I like him in a weird way

Like watching him fight he's a talented fighter and i don't take him as serious as many. Gotta laugh at the comments i've seen over years such as 'think he's a rudeboy'. Far from it the lad i think people saying that must live in mainly white area's, Thick and punchy yes, Rudeboy not.

He's done well so far, Wants to have hard fights but needs to change trainers to maximize his potential.

Always liked him, can see why some people find him annoying but think he comes across as a decent guy on the whole and hope he goes onto to fulfill his potential.

He seems like he's a child/idiot in a warrior's body, he'd kick the ass of pretty much most people in the world at his weight in the ring, but only physically.

As far as the poll goes, I didn't answer because there's no middle of the road option and for some reason Degale doesn't evoke strong emotion in me like he does with some people. I let him off a lot of the stuff he does because he seems too daft to know better. Like Khan.

He started off the wrong way with fans and will have some work to do getting them back on side, leaving ***** though I think is a good move. I reckon he will become more popular as he progresses.

He's confident, a character and british boxing is in need of someone like him! its just a shame no-one knows about him but sooner he gets away from ***** and Boxnation the better and same goes for other British fighters he has who are looking for exposure, e.g Groves.
