Default today i became a degale fan

i thought his last fight was great, but today he really impressed me, he is a very good counter puncher, quick handspeed, decent footwork good balanace and timing on his punches. and really he schooled the irish lad today, i am expecting him to go on and win the gold medal now, wonder if he will turn professional after these games? not sure how he would cope with the bigger boys at middlewieght but even so, i was very impressed am i the only one?

Yeah another amazing performance by Degale, his timing when he counter punched was awsome, who is he facing in the final?

Degale impressed me, first time Ive had a good look at Him. Once he knows where His Elbows are, and understands Short from Long He will do well.

I said on here yesterday that Sutherland was MADE for Degale. How easy was that?

I hate to say it, but I really don't lke DeGale. And he will struggle in the pros - I can see decent stand-offish boxer-punchers beating him.

And swarmers too, keeping in mind how different pro scoring is and how aggression can be favoured.

Comes across as a dick head but thats life

Did well, had his homework done and Sutherland was very poor today

As form would suggest, its not like DeGaule is a better fighter than Sutherland period, as decent as DeGaule was well Sutherland was very poor

He made Sutherland look poor. Not hard but still a good performance from DeGale.
