Former British and European champion James DeGale will have his next fight in Quebec Canada, against a yet to be announced opponent on the 17 May. DeGale, 27, has not fought since beating Colombian Fulgencio Zuniga in December.

He had been due to defend his WBC Silver title in March against another Colombian, Alexander Brand, but that was postponed. The appearance in Canada will be only DeGale’s second professional bout outside Britain – he beat Cristian Sanavia in Denmark last April.
