DeGale vs Truax: James DeGale wants to stay and box in the United Kingdom next year

James DeGale wants to stay on home soil in 2018 and prove he is one sbo ninja of Britain's, not just London's, biggest boxing stars.The IBF super-middleweight world champion fights on home soil for the first time in two-and-a-half years when he defends against Caleb Truax at the Copper Box, on December 9.DeGale is looking for three big fights next year and while adviser Al Hayman is already planning a unification fight sbo ninja with the current WBC holder, Arizona's David Benavidez, he would like to re-establish his standing in British boxing first.
Image"It's been a while and my last four fights have been in America and Canada, so I'm really looking forward to this fight," DeGale exclusively told Sky Sports."Let's be honest, it is my homecoming. The last couple of years with me have been exciting and people have wanted me to come home and I am, so of course it will sell out."Obviously sbo ninja
Anthony Joshua is a one-off - he's a bit like Ricky Hatton was when it comes to his following, and winning the Olympics obviously helped and he comes across well, of course. But apart from AJ, I would say I am second (in London). But I still have to be in big fights to draw everybody in.
