Max Verstappen was forced
James DeGale regained the IBF super middleweight title he lost in December to Caleb Truax with a bloody, 12-round unanimous decision on Saturday at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

The fight was an immediate rematch of what many thought was the upset of the year in boxing in Martellus Bennett Womens Jersey 2017. The 32-year-old DeGale (24-2-1 14 KOs) held the IBF world title at 168lbs for 31 months before http://www.chiefsofficialsauthentic....-PARKER-JERSEY losing it to the 34-year-old Truax (29-4-2, 18 KOs) on DeGale’s home turf in London.
“I’m back,” DeGale said. “Two-and-a-half years I had it and I lost it to Caleb. He embarrassed me, but we’re back.”DeGale suffered a massive cut just over his right eye on an accidental head butt that led to extensive bleeding in the third round.“I couldn’t see from my right eye,” DeGale said. “I couldn’t see. But I’m just glad I got through it. I showed some heart. In my last fight, I was like a weak little kid.”
Hurd connected on a short left hook with less than a minute remaining, knocking down for former WBA champion Lara (25-3-2, 14 KOs), the longest reigning champion at 154lbs entering the fight. Lara was attempting to defend his title for the sixth consecutive time.
The British driver looked deflated when he emerged from the car but said he was pleased with the result, while acknowledging that once again, as he was last season, he is playing catch-up to Vettel. “I am honestly really, really happy with it,” he said. “Emotions are always firing when you get out of the car. It’s so intense. And also my thoughts were on the world championship. I have lost two races now. But to come from ninth and get third I am really happy with that. It was damage limitation. But I am 17 points down already.”Sergio Marchionne, Ferrari’s president, said: “It was a difficult race and Sebastian drove like a true champion.”
Vettel has four titles already but perhaps Marchionne feels his team’s boldness augurs well for a fifth. No driver who has won the opening two races of the season has not gone on to take the title since 1982, when Alain Prost won the openers but Keke Rosberg the championship. There are more races now of course but it is a statistic that will please Vettel. He thoroughly deserved the win and admirable as Mercedes’ dash was to try to deny Ferrari, Kris Letang Youth jersey Hamilton and his team know they truly have their work cut out.
