The bitter animosity between British super-middleweight rivals @jamesdegale1 and @chriseubankjr fired up again when the warring pair came head-to-head behind closed doors to film a special programme for fight broadcaster @itvboxing
With the big-fight just under three weeks’ away, the bad blood is boiling up between the long-time enemies, who’s feud has stretched to nearly eight years, ahead of #astormiscoming grudge fight promoted by @premierboxing and @poxonsports on Saturday 23rd February at @theo2london , exclusively live on ITV Box Office.
The fiery confrontation took place at a gritty converted former industrial factory in the backstreets of East London last week where DeGale and Eubank got up close-and-personal to film ITV Sports’ The Big Fight: DeGale vs Eubank Jr - Face to Face.
The special programme will broadcast on fight week and forms part of an unprecedented week of original programming content for ITV Sport, culminating in the big-fight on Saturday night.
DeGale and Eubank went face-to-face across a table with only ITV Sports’ man in the middle, the multi-award winning broadcaster Gabriel Clarke, who fired off hard-hitting questions to both fighters during a gripping and intense session that brought out the character, emotion and desire of both men ahead of their pivotal clash with everything on the line.
