'I’m relentless, I don’t stop. Volume, speed, power, it’s all a dangerous combination,' says Chris Eubank Jnr, 'and he knows that'

CHRIS EUBANK Jnr has dismissed suggestions James DeGale is a fighter in decline, believing that will be demonstrated when they finally fight next week.

Their long-term rivalry is to be settled on February 23 at London’s 02 Arena, in what appears increasingly likely to be DeGale’s last bout.

George Groves’ retirement ended DeGale’s hopes of a rematch and left him with few lucrative options to pursue regardless of whether he secures victory. Equally significant is that he has recently struggled to impress.
