DeGale defeats Zuniga

2008 Olympic gold medalist and current super middleweight contender James DeGale (14-1, 9 KOs) scored a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over Fulgencio Zuniga (25-7-1, 22 KOs) to claim the vacant WBC Silver title on Saturday night at the Hull Sports Arena in Hull, England. DeGale dropped Zuniga in round three and nearly finished him with his follow up barrage. Zuniga showed his toughness as he gamely fought on to the end. Scores were 118-109 on all cards.

Unbeaten super middleweight Chris Eubank Jr moved to 9-0, 4 KOs after a second round stoppage of Olegs Fedotovs (15-10, 1 KOs). It was Eubank’s second fight in seven days.

Hot unbeaten super featherweight Kid Galahad (13-0, 6 KOs) was impressive in outclassing Ivan Ruiz Morote (15-2, 7 KOs). The bout was stopped in round four after Galahad had dropped Morote multiple times.
