DeGale, Selby opponents named

We already knew IBF super middleweight world champion James DeGale and IBF featherweight world champion Lee Selby will defend their belts on December 9 at London’s Copper Box Arena. Now we have opponents. DeGale will defend against IBF #15 rated Minnesota boxer Caleb Truax (28-3-2, 18 KOs), Selby will face IBF #11 Eduardo Ramirez (20-0-3, 7 KOs) from Mexico.

It was obvious when there were no opponents at the press conference that these were going to be poor title defenses.  DeGale's is forgivable to a degree given that he is returning from injury and will have been out of the ring for almost a year come fight night.

Selby's is just an outright waste of time though.  He's 30 now and in a division stacked full of talent it looks like the biggest fight that could happen for him any time soon is against Warrington in a fight that he'd probably be considered the 'B' side in if it's held in Leeds.

Poor match-ups.

Caleb is game but not going to win.
