DeGale easily retains European belt

James DeGale retained his European super-middleweight title with a comfortable victory inside four rounds over Cristian Sanavia in Denmark.


DeGale, making his first defence of the title he won with a majority decision over Piotr Wilczewski in October 2011, sent Sanavia crashing to the canvas three times in the fourth round, forcing the referee to put a stop to the fight.

The 26-year-old completely dismantled his more experienced Italian opponent, dominating from the off before hitting top gear in the fourth.

With the victory the Olympic gold medallist improves his record to 12-1 (9KOs)
