James DeGale vs. Rogelio Medina

The Armory, Washington, DC, April 30
TV: Showtime
By Peter Lim

Let's not kid ourselves into believing that this is anything more than a stay-busy bout for DeGale against a handpicked journeyman opponent with a deceivingly decent record as he awaits more lucrative fights. A 2012 Olympic gold medalist, DeGale is simply a notch or three above Medina in ring IQ. In a glorified sparring session, DeGale out-boxes, out-slugs and toys with Medina before stopping him in the seventh round.

DeGale might be one of those guys who fights up or down to the level of his opposition. It's always a tough, life-and-death struggle every time.
