Boxer James DeGale moved a step closer to a title shot after comfortably defending his WBC silver super middleweight crown with a unanimous points decision victory over Dyah Davis at Glow, Bluewater in Kent.

The 2008 Olympic gold medallist was dominant for the majority, although he had to recover from a slight lapse in the middle rounds. But the American never possessed the power to cause any undue concern that DeGale might suffer an unexpected blip to his world title plans.
