I, For One, Welcome our Woodward overlord.
And he has, and to be honest he deserved to lose. Knocked the guy over round 1 and had a 10-7 round and then just did nothing for the next 11 rounds, looked tired and was outclassed by a guy with not much class himself.

DeGale fight then, boo'd on his debut win, couldn't knock his guy about let alone out, pissed off the fans and the media all after coming into the ring like he was a world champion in arrogance.

All of the above is a very harsh write up of what I saw. In reality he was fighting a guy who clearly was just fighting to survive and was a shell behind his hands. DeGale still boxes like an amatuer fighter and it will take him alot of time to adjust to the pro game, his style tonight would have been an awesome display in the amatuer ranks but tonight he just wanted to hit some nice combos then back out. The crowd got on his back when the found out he clearly wasn't going to pile into his man, and to be honest its understandable on your debut to get a feel for it, especially when he was basically back handing his jab. I think in time he will be a very classy boxer but he clearly needs time and work on his fighting aspect. All in all not that impressive but not like he was utter shit and deserved to be boo'd, thickle old public.

DeGale has a lot to learn and I hope he does. One of those things would be to rein in the 'tude until he's a real pro fighter. Another is that Frank Warren could damage his career for ever if he's not careful. Terry Marsh had a point, even if his aim was off that night..
