DeGale-Kessler possible for April

degale345By Gav Duthie: After accepting that he is highly unlikely to fight Carl Froch anytime soon James ‘Chunky’ DeGale is in negotiations with great Dane Mikkel Kessler on April 25 possibly at the O2 arena.

Champion: Carl Froch
1. James DeGale
2. Andre Dirrell
3. Gilberto Ramirez
4. George Groves
5. Julius Jackson
