VIDEO: British boxer pays classy tribute to Darren Sutherland after World title win
James DeGale swept to a world title last night but the action in the ring was somewhat overshadowed at least from an Irish perspective by a wonderful gesture after the fight.
The British fighter blew past Andre Dirrell on points to secure the vacant IBF world championship while wearing shorts with the initals DS on them.
The Londoner was a close personal friend of the late Irish boxer Darren Sutherland who died in 2009, and the former Olympic champion didn't forget his friend last night.
After the action in Boston he dedicated the win to the man he beat in the semi final of the Olympics in Beijing in 2008
