BBC Sport - James DeGale on special win over Dirrell and George Groves rivalry

DeGale on special win & Groves rivalry

James DeGale tells Victoria Derbyshire that he is "over the moon" after beating Andre Dirrell on points to claim the vacant IBF super-middleweight belt in Boston.

DeGale describes the victory as "special" as he became the first Briton to win Olympic gold and a professional world title.

When asked about his next bout DeGale says he does not need to fight either Carl Froch or George Groves and says his rivalry with Groves dates back to when they were amateurs.
