Promoter vows to deliver DeGale title fight

first_imgPromoter Mick Hennessy has responded to James DeGale’s discontent by vowing to do all he can to secure a world title fight for the Harlesden man.DeGale, who successfully defended his WBC silver super-middleweight title against American Dyah Davis on Saturday, is frustrated at his apparent lack of progress since signing with Hennessy last year.To make matters worse for the 27-year-old, his rival and fellow West Londoner George Groves will take on champion Carl Froch in a world title clash in Manchester this weekend.But Hennessy insists he is capable of delivering big fights for DeGale in the new year.“No-one wants that world title fight to happen more than me. I don’t want James to keep treading water,” he told West London Sport.“I’m going to do my utmost. Absolutely every which way I’m going to try and nail down a world title fight for him.DeGale and Groves could meet again“I’ve got a proven track record for it and I’m going to put that track record to the test.”DeGale, who narrowly lost to Groves on points in 2011, has been touted as a possible future opponent for the winner of Saturday’s all-British showdown.The more likely option seems to be a final eliminator against Mexico’s Marco Antonio Periban for a shot at the WBC’s world champion Sakio Bika.But Hennessy, formerly Froch’s promoter, believes DeGale is capable of beating the Nottingham fighter were they to meet.“I’d prefer him to fight the winner of Froch-Groves and then have a big unification fight with Andre Ward,” Hennessy said.“Carl Froch is a great fighter – determined and strong – but the way to beat him is with hand speed, skill and movement.“James has got all those things and I do believe he has the ability to beat Froch were they to fight.“That’s the preferred route but sometimes you’ve got to take what you can get.”Hennessy added: “I don’t think James should have taken a world title fight earlier – definitely not.“You’ve got to get the right time, when he’s had the right experience, to go into a world title fight.“I can understand James’ frustration, but sometimes patience is a virtue.”See also:DeGale wants Groves clash at Loftus RoadDeGale must prove he is ready for world title shot, says promoterTrainer says DeGale is ‘a million per cent ready’ for world title challengeDeGale weighs in ahead of Davis clashVictory keeps DeGale in line for title shotPromoter will not ‘buckle to pressure’ as DeGale eyes title shotDeGale tells promoter to deliver title fightDeGale in line for world title eliminator James DeGale v Dyah Davis as it happenedDeGale keen to put on ‘wicked’ 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Are You Covered? – Medicare Overseas

first_imgParticipant Question: I am in the military with a dependent that has Medicare. If we get stationed overseas, is my dependent still covered by Medicare?Answer: Yes, your dependent is still a Medicare beneficiary but it is unlikely that her/his coverage will be honored. Assuming you are not stationed in one of the territories referenced above and assuming the person isn’t a military retiree eligible for TRICARE for Life, Medicare may provide coverage for emergency treatment OCONUS (Outside Continental United States). However, the beneficiary will likely have to file the claim him/herself. Please note that Medicare will not pay for routine, non-emergency procedures. * Participant Question: Since Guam is a U.S. Territory, are Medicare beneficiaries covered by Medicare in Guam?Answer: YES! US Territories are considered part of the US when determining Medicare coverage. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has produced the following video to help clarify Medicare coverage abroad – Medicare & You: Traveling AbroadFor additional information about Medicare coverage when traveling outside of the U.S. please refer to this article: Travel (when you need health care outside the U.S.) In our most recent webinar, Medicare 2017 & What it Means for You, there were some questions from participants concerning Medicare coverage outside the United States. Please read through the questions below to see what questions were asked and the resources that we’ve found to address them. Also, if it piques your interest to learn more, you can view the session at the event page.center_img *We are gathering additional information to answer this question in more detail.

It’s not because he doesn’t want to score goals badly. It just is a rut that he finds himself in and we’re working hard with him on the training field to try and help him to get out of it.” last_img read more
