By FightFan.com Staff (24-May-2015)
Video highlights courtesy of Premier Boxing Champions: James DeGale became the first British Olympic gold medalist to win a world championship as he outpointed Andre Dirrell for a unanimous decision victory Saturday in Boston. DeGale took control of the fight early, scoring a pair of knockdowns in Round 2 via thundering overhand lefts. Dirrell got back into the fight during the middle rounds, however, rallying by throwing more than DeGale, who began to focus more on his lateral movement and counterpunching. But DeGale ended the fight in strong fashion, picking up the pace and out-landing Dirrell en route to a history-making victory.
