Moments ago, inside of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, WBC super middleweight champion Badou Jack and IBF super middleweight champion James DeGale fought to a 12-round majority draw in front of a lively crowd.

The fight has been long-discussed and the anticipation was heavy heading into Saturday night; both men showed great flashes throughout the match in what served as boxing’s first big fight of 2017.

Earlier today, in New York, WBC super middleweight champion Badou Jack and IBF champion James DeGale weighed in ahead of their unification met on Saturday night from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Jack (20-1-2, 12 KO’s) came in weighing 167.2 pounds while DeGale (23-1, 14 KO’s) hit the scales weighing 166.5 pounds. There was not much room for talk or bravado at Friday’s weigh-in, as each man is obviously fully confident in their skills and belief that they will emerge victorious tomorrow.

On Saturday night, April 30, WBC super middleweight champion Badou Jack retained his title as he settled for a draw with former longtime IBF titlist Lucian Bute inside of the Armory in Washington, D.C.

Jack (20-1-2, 12 KO’s) appeared to do enough to secure a victory, with one judge giving him a 117-111 edge. That tally was overruled by two 114-114 scorecards, however, as Jack retains his title and could be meeting IBF champion James DeGale later this year in a unification match.

On Saturday night, Sep. 12, WBC super middleweight champion Badou Jack scored perhaps the most impressive victory of his career in out-dueling brash UK contender George Groves over twelve fast-paced rounds for a successful first defense of his belt.

The match took place from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nev. on the Floyd Mayweather vs. Andre Berto undercard. Jack (20-1-1, 12 KO’s) scored a knockdown in the first round and appeared to gain the early lead in the face of a determined Groves (21-3, 16 KO’s).
