James Degale talked about retirement if he loses this fight but at the same time he is bullish going into the fight promising to rather end Chris Eubank Jr’s career at the top level and rightly so. If Eubank Jr were to lose this fight its hard to see where he will go from here. He has been found out several times already against decent opponents and another defeat against very well a journey man in Degale will surely put doubts in Eubank Jr’s head.
