CALEB TRUAX, with a series of high-profile losses behind him, stunned the boxing world in December when he beat James DeGale in London, snatching the IBF super-middleweight belt in the champion’s backyard.

Tomorrow night, in Las Vegas about half-a-mile down the road from the bright lights of the famous strip, inside the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Caleb Truax promises he will defeat him again.

DeGale claims he was hampered by a shoulder injury and – in a candid interview in this week’s Boxing News – admits that he presumed he just had to turn up to claim the victory. What he received, though, was a punishing 12-round points defeat.
