World champion James DeGale has vacated his IBF super-middleweight title.

He says the decision to vacate is to free him up to pursue “massive fights” rather than face mandatory defences ordered by the IBF.

“My team have been working very hard and we’ve got some very big, exciting news to announce soon,” said DeGale.

“No world champion easily gives up their title. I’ve proudly held the IBF title in two reigns with pride and distinction which is why it makes it very hard decision to relinquish the belt.
