James DeGale retires: Former Olympic & world champion quits at 33


Britain's two-time world champion James DeGale has retired following defeat by Chris Eubank Jr on Saturday.

The 33-year-old was the first British boxer to win Olympic gold - at Beijing 2008 - and a professional world title.
"It's been an unbelievable journey," said DeGale, who lost by unanimous decision at London's O2 Arena.
"It's hard to admit that I'm not the fighter I once was. I'm human and, along the way, my injuries have taken a toll - both on mind and body.
