Badou Jack vs James DeGale Unification Is Finally Here : Prediction

First of all we would like to thank all of our followers who help make boxing kingdom what we are today. If you get the chance please RT this article & tag your friends.

Let’s get started!

The Unification fight is only days away.  The boxing world is excited again. So let’s break down this fight.

Key Points:

Both fighters have one loss on their record. DeGale’s was in a very close fight to Groves (who faces Chudinov for the WBA strap in February – likely in London). Badou Jack was blown out when he was caught early by Derek Edwards. Also worth noting is that Jack has a draw with Periban in late 2013 and another draw against Bute, which Jack clearly won in our opinion. Bute also went on to fail a PED test, so that fight has no bearing on the prediction at all.

Both fighters are in career best condition. James DeGale looks absolutely ripped & he’s been on weight for 2 weeks. Jack doesn’t make weight easily & he’s likely to move up to Light Heavyweight in his next few bouts.

DeGale will start well. Jack is a complete fighter, he has very little flaws. He’s also the fastest improving fighter in the sport. His methodical & traditional style will play into DeGale’s hands.

DeGale’s range & uncanny ability to throw punches form weird angles should be enough to win a lot of the early rounds. Jack has under rated power but he will take some time to adjust. DeGale should have a solid lead by the 8th round. Expect Jack to come on strong late.

I don’t see any knockdowns in this fight. We can expect a chess match, however it will be fun to watch. It will have a very high tempo. DeGale’s footwork & movement will simply be to much and it will keep him out of trouble in the final rounds. Jack will win most of the final rounds however we see DeGale winning the bout clearly by 4 rounds.

Another factor to consider is the decision. DeGale should get the decision. But as we know crazier things have happened. If it’s close, don’t be shocked if a debatable draw or split decision goes the way of Jack.

But for right now our pick is DeGale in what will be a fantastic performance in a fan friendly fight.
