British super-middleweight James DeGale has challenged Carl Froch to fight him or "vacate the title".
The 28-year-old, who rose to prominence with gold at the 2008 Olympic Games in London, recorded a third-round stoppage against Marco Antonio Periban last night to set up a IBF super-middleweight title shot.
"I like Carl but it feels like he doesn't want to fight me," DeGale told Sky Sports News. "I respect him but I think he's being a bit of a coward not fighting me - fight me or vacate the title."
Froch later responded to the comments, saying: "Boxing is a business, I have a promoter and if the fight makes financial sense, it will happen. I want to fight in Las Vegas and if anyone has the right to pick and choose where they fight, it's me."
