Olympic gold medal boxer James DeGale has linked up with Perform at St George’s Park, home of the England football teams, ahead of his world title fight in April.

The 2008 Olympic champion will be supported by Perform over the 11 weeks prior to his IBF super-middleweight fight.

Following a day of testing at the high-performance facility at the FA’s National Football Centre, the expert team of sports scientists will provide DeGale with a meticulous preparation programme to help him fine-tune elements of his training.

The day of testing included a series of evaluations from elite sport scientists Dr Carls Wells and Ian Aylward.

The tests taken were to measure hydration and functional movements as well as assessing lactate profile and V02 max.

The tests were aimed to pinpoint any areas that could be tweaked ahead of the fight and to define baseline measurements for improvement over the coming months.

Dr Wells said: “It’s great to have James working with us today.

“Perform are always excited to work with professional athletes and help contribute to their success where possible.”

DeGale said: “It’s been a really good experience coming down to Perform and being put through my paces.

“Boxing is all about performance and the finest details can make a big difference, so the tests I’ve done today will be influential.”

DeGale will fight American Andre Dirrell in his bid to become a world champion, with an all-British super-fight between DeGale and Carl Froch a possibility for later in the year.

Prior to his fight for the belt at the O2 Arena in London on April 25, DeGale will have a week’s access to the Perform facilities to ensure he has the best possible preparation.
