DeGale ‘Horton will make me look great’
But the 24-year-old DeGale thinks his first ever 12-round contest will be over quickly.
DeGale said: “On paper, this is a good fight as he’s had 15 wins and only lost once., he is young, so he’s going to be ambitious, but he’s going to make me look great.”
“Sam’s going to get knocked out in four rounds and it’s definitely not going the distance. Obviously I’ve trained very, very hard to go 12 rounds but this ain’t going 12.”
“I’m going to start fast. The power’s coming on well now so I’m going to be quick and explosive.”
