WATCH: James DeGale claims loser of Eubank Jr. fight will be forced to retire

It was recently confirmed that James Degale will face Chris Eubank Jr. in an intriguing domestic fight.

Both boxers have had their struggles in recent times, with DeGale coming into the bout off the back of some unconvincing performances, having lost to Caleb Truax in a majority decision before eventually beating him in a rematch – albeit in unspectacular fashion.

As for Eubank Jr. he is still reeling from a hugely disappointing display as he lost to George Groves, with it being the second high-profile loss of his career, having previously fell against Billy Joe Saunders.

After such underwhelming recent displays, it is a must-win fight for both boxers, something which DeGale acknowledged. The 32-year-old has had his hunger questioned in recent years, but says he is determined to avoid retirement by losing to Eubank Jr.

Watch below to see the full clip as DeGale has his say on the future of both fighters.
