Douglin spent six week’s in Eubank’s training camp in Brighton sparring with the Briton and living with him. Having returned to Las Vegas Douglin told Jeff Mayweather’s youtube channel: “I’m picking DeGale, man. I feel bad saying it but I just think DeGale is more intelligent in the ring and that’s what it comes down to.
“Eubank is not going to fade but I just think DeGale is too crafty. It was just little things in sparring that I was doing and he didn’t know how to handle it.
