DeGale loses world title defence to Truax

James DeGale’s homecoming ended in disaster as he lost his IBF super-middleweight world title to American Caleb Truax.
‘Chunky’ was in trouble in the fifth round and although his experience saw him fight back in the second-half of the fight, he lost a majority decision.
The scores of 114-114, 115-112, 116-112 in Truax’s favour stunned a Copper Box crowd that had come to see the first British fighter to win an Olympic gold and a professional world title, box on home soil again.
