Biography

James DeGale represented Great Britain at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games in the Middleweight boxing event, winning gold. In the quarterfinals, he beat a former Olympic gold medalist from Athens (Bakhtiyar Artayev) and in the semi-final once again beat the Irishman Darren Sutherland (prior to this latest meeting the boxers had fought five times with Sutherland winning four and DeGale only one). In the final DeGale won, a scrappy and bad tempered affair against the Cuban Emilio Correa who was deducted two points in the first round for biting DeGale's shoulder. Nicknamed ‘Chunky’, DeGale started boxing aged 10 when his father and grandfather took him along to his first boxing club, Trogan. His career took off with flying colours as he won numerous junior championships.
