JAMES DEGALE believes he is in the best shape of his career ahead of his homecoming title fight against Caleb Truax.

DeGale will make the fourth defence of his IBF super-middleweight championship – and his first on home soil in three years – when he takes on America’s Truax at London’s Copper Box Arena on Saturday.

The fight is also DeGale’s first since surgery on his right shoulder following his bruising draw against Badou Jack in January.
