Congratilation DeGale, good match up from him. With Sautherland will nice fight, and chances are 50:50. The Uzbek who was beaten by Sautherland its very hard opponent. The Uzbek beats Arteyev last month in the Turkey according to the ESB memeber NBT. Great semifinal ?

Really pleased for DeGale - can't wait to see our guys in the semi finals on Friday.

Happy Birthday by the way Rooq!

The guy is very ****y. If you think Khan comes across as a nob in his interviews then this chap will go one better when he turns pro.

The Cuban he will probably face in the final does not look too exciting, gold is there for the taking for degale. Just got bored with the cubans semi final against kumar of india.

DeGale wins clearly Sautherland. The bout results 10:3 for DeGale. He will face in the final the Cuban Correa who wins Indian, Kumhar.

He can be King Nob of Nobtown for all I care, he's in the final.

Don't think Egan came off all that better, despite the chummy tone. Gary was mentioning his sportsmanship but he didn't give Degale a single bit of credit.

"He's a runner"...he was running, but he was also hitting you in the face with counterpunches throughout.

I'm tired of boxers that think you're not a real fighter unless you're planting your feet and throwing hooks from the hip.

Let's be clear about this - he's a runner, and Egan was not skillful or fast enough to catch him. Good going Degale, exceeded my expectations and good luck in the final.

I don't know if Degale will beat Correa. Correa can be slap happy, but he is quite good.

He reminds me of Junior Witter - both in fighting style and persona.

Putting personal issues aside, I am glad he is in the final and hope he wins - then gets KTFO when he turns pro

I'm not sure he'll be a good pro. There are many things you have to ask. Can he actually take a shot? The Irish guy looked like he rocked him a bit. There are questions there.

Does he actually have any power, there is a lot of slapping going on. If he does fight with a similar style, it will be very difficult to fight 12 rounds with so much legwork.

Indeed... he boxed superbly and he's sussed out a great style for the ams. Make them lead, slip and counter. Repeat.

But he arm punches a hell of a lot.

I guess we just can't judge until we see him give and take punches in the pro's. He'd need a decent spell to make the transition, he'd need some major work.

Very well done today though.
