DeGale’s next fight date still not known; a better opponent being sought

 james degale By Sean McDaniel: James DeGale’s previously scheduled January 27th fight against little known Spaniard Jose Maria Guerrero has reportedly been canceled and a better opponent is being looked by DeGale’s promoter for early 2012.

Should Khan be allowed to shove and hold as much he wants?

Khan Peterson Khan vs. Peterson  amir khan (Notice Khan’s left arm holding Zab Judah’s head down while he gets ready to hit him with a right hand to the nads for a knockout blow. Good form, eh?) By Scott Gilfoid: In reading some of the things Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer said about his fighter Amir Khan’s shoving of his opponent Lamont Peterson and how Schaefer and Khan both didn’t see it as a foul, I wonder if Khan should be allowed to do this in his fights as often as he likes without having to worry about a referee taking points away from him in the future.
