Boxing: Kubín destroyed by Olympic medalist DeGale

In boxing, the formerly unbeaten Czech Jindřích Kubín was defeated by British Olympic champion James DeGale in Belfast on Friday night. The middleweight gold medalist from the Beijing games produced a powerful display to beat the Czech, who was fighting outside Central Europe for the first time. A combination of right-hand punches floored Kubín and DeGale pursued his opponent relentlessly until the referee stopped the contest before the end of the first-round at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast.
