James DeGale gets into argument with Caleb Plant at face off

Plant interrupted the presser to ask for a fight.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

During yesterday’s presser and face off between James DeGale and Caleb Truax, another Caleb (Plant) decided to speak up for a fight, offering his entire purse (and step aside money for Jose Uzcategui) just for the opportunity.

DeGale didn’t take kindly to the offer, calling Plant a vagina and momentarily stepped off stage to confront him. There wouldn’t be any tussling but DeGale did go off on quick rant and called for Plant to be taken out of the room.

Check the video above, courtesy of Fight Hub TV, to see the the lil’ dust up in action, but I’ll warn you that some of the language is NSFW. So be warned...

DeGale will attempt to recapture his IBF super middleweight title tomorrow night against Truax after dropping a decision to him last December — a fight DeGale called a fluke and has completely dismissed just coming back too soon following shoulder surgery.
