HART TO FACE DEGALE-FIELDING WINNER EARLY 2019?
By G. Leon
The announcement of Top Rank's Partnership with Frank Warren opens the door for many interesting fights between the two companies, so we would not be surprised if super middleweights Jesse Hart and James DeGale square off in early 2019. As we understand it, the match-up is very likely provided Hart takes care of business in his next ESPN appearance and DeGale, the IBF champion, is able to add the WBA (regular) title to his collection when he faces Rocky Fielding in a match-up that is close to being finalized. Of course, there is also an outside chance that DeGale-Fielding falls apart and DeGale-Hart happens immediately, but the former scenario is far more likely as this goes to print. Hart was unavailable for immediate comment, but we plan to have word from the world class super middleweight in the coming days.
