Former junior middleweight titlist James DeGale will take on current IBF titlist Caleb Truax on April 7 in Las Vegas.
The fight, which will co-headline the Showtime card that features WBA junior middleweight titlist Erislandy Lara taking on IBF champ Jarrett Hurd in a 154-pound unification bout, will see DeGale aiming to reclaim his title.
DeGale lost via majority decision to Truax last December at London’s Copper Box Arena.
“I’m happy to have the opportunity to rematch Traux and regain my IBF title,” said DeGale. “I am not going to make excuses for my poor performance, actions speak louder than words. I am excited to be boxing in Vegas and on Showtime again. The real JD will be back on fight night!”
