@ukwingchunstudent you can still be robbed if a fight is edged. I had DeGale by 2 rounds. That’s not a lot of rounds but Degale won his rounds more convincingly whereas Groves edged his. So the question is, if both you and I had it for DeGale by 2 rounds and 2 judges had it by 1 round to Groves that’s a 3 round swing. Which 3 rounds did they give to Groves that we gave to Degale? DeGale won his rounds convincingly so i have no idea how they can do that. That equates to a robbery

Just seen your channel, it’s great and i enjoy your videos. Very cool accent as well. I honestly didn’t know much about both fighters, the fight wasn’t really advertised in the states and i didn’t know much about either fighters. I thought that DeGale won the fight on 1 or 2 rounds. But Groves also showed good skills. I do however think DeGale will be the better fighter and will go further, i’m looking forward to seeing them meet again in the future hopefully.

sorry George… hehe
It was well worth paying for i thought, because Groves did something we’ve never seen him do before; avoid a war. And Degale was flummoxed by it, which is a damning indictment on the tactics of the people whove been training him for the last couple of years. Theyre blatantly going to fight again, fairly soonish i reckon. I certainly dont think Groves has Degales “number” just yet

I love me some boxing too, but I feel it is slowly dying. MMA is way more entertaining imo, but this was a good fight and I’m happy Groves took it

most people from harlesden have a chip on their shoulder its a nw london dive. Harrison comes from there also…. Degale will only ever achieve domesticly, Groves a much cooler Better fighter, if he would of gone toe to toe he would have KO’d degale . maybe degale can work in TESCOS near harlesden he be better off there.

GOOD REVIEW WITHOUT RACIAL BIASE WHICH SEEMS TO BE A POPULAR THING ON YOUTUBE! I THOUGHT COUDVE GONE EITHER WAY! IN BOXING THERE SEEMS TO BE ALOT OF REVERSE RACISM AGAINST WHITE FIGHTERS! SHOULD DEFINATELY GET RID OF MCDONNELL ROB MCCRACKEN WOULD BE A GOOD CHOICE THATS IF HES INTERESTED SEEIN AS HE TRAINS FROCH

@a99999999999987 If he just nicked it then it wasnt a robbery, it was too close, i edged with degale but this is why we have three judges, decisions like this. He should have done what he said he was gonna and leave no question regards the result.

degale should get a new trainer and top class sparring partners ! and i belive he will bounce back stronger ,groves just taught him a lesson that will make him a better fighter/person and i thinck he will go futher than groves!

I was chuffed for Groves,Degale acts like a dick,maybe this defeat might bring him back to earth and make him a better fighter

big fan of your videos, you can be forgiven for picking degale, i still think he nicked it, groves seems to have been awarded rounds for fighting better than he was expected to, no disrespect to him, he’s very young and improves with every fight, he was a different animal to the anderson fight, just wondering if you’ve heard of luis garcia? the cuban based in ireland, i have to say i think he’s a class ahead of both degale and groves, what you reckon?

hope theran he not a rematch soon as i would nt pay for it, degirl was a dirty fighter , and 1 of the most arrogant boxer ever , frank warrens head is massive as big as naz es ,
rematch i would not wont to see that for 15 more fights , 2 nill,. frank looked a joke . nat s fight was stopped like khans last fight was a farce i tiny cut on the head , yet j de gale was alould to elbow heed but , but no p/ deducted ?

I think Groves can beat Silvester and DeGale can beat Andreas. These matches would be good next step for them both without worrying anymore about the feud.

Amir Khan & James Degale could well be a ‘marriage’ made on ukwingchunstudent’s page! 😉

Degale should try team up with Freddy Roach & co. Not sure if he can do that under Warren? Is he still too much of a prospect for Golden Boy to step in? If I were Degale, I’d get on the phone to Amir Khan. IMO they can really help each other out: Degale could help Amir on his defence. Amir could help James tone down the arrogance, become more disciplined and increase his output. Plus: Degale would help to train Khan against defensive wizards. And, Khan would help Degale against movers.

I for one am glad that loud mouth trash talking arsehole Degale got dealt a beating, him and frank warren deserved no less, completely classless, and very unsporting

do you think if they had swapped trainers degame would of won, i really think degales trainer let him down, true groves went allmost completly against type but there should of been a plan b. i still think aslong as his head is on right degale will go further in his carear, was so close should be a draw but i very much doubt groves will exept it aas i think without that tactical suprise he could pull it off.
