DeGale-Uzcategui Purse Bid on July 5
A purse bid for a bout between IBF Super Middleweight Champion James DeGale and interim champion Jose Uzcategui is scheduled for July 5.
About a month ago, the IBF mandated that the two must face off and ordered for the sides to negotiate. As reported by ESPN’s Dan Rafael, the two sides have been unable to come to terms and a purse bid is set for July 5 at 12 p.m. ET at the sanctioning body’s headquarters in Springfield, New Jersey.
The two sides can still negotiate and come to a deal up until 15 minutes prior to the purse bid,
DeGale won back his IBF title back in an April rematch with Caleb Truax. Uzcategui won the interim title in a rematch of his own — defeating Andre Dirrell this past March.
