Brit boxer was left surprised after his shock world title loss to American Caleb Traux regardless of being odds of 1/100 on to win the bout
JAMES DEGALE has issued a grovelling apology after his shock defeat to Caleb Traux.
However it seems his boxing rivals have little sympathy for the Brit after shedding his world title.
Truax surprised boxing followers on Saturday night time when he upset all the percentages to defeat DeGale – regardless of the Brit being a staggering 1/100 on to retain his world title.
The struggle went the gap earlier than judges scored the bout 114-114, 115-112, 116-112 within the American’s favour.
DeGale, 31, was taken to hospital after the struggle to obtain remedy on a damaged nostril.
And on Sunday he broke his silence on Twitter, claiming he’s going to take day out earlier than deciding his future.
He wrote: “Devastated with my efficiency final night time.
“Really feel like I’ve let everybody down – myself, my household, mates and followers.

“Thanks all to your love and help.”
It was DeGale’s first struggle in 11 months after his prolonged restoration from a shoulder harm.
However it appears different boxing stars didn’t seem fazed by his defeat.
