first_imgJames DeGale insists he will thrive under the pressure of knowing he cannot afford to lose his European title challenge against Piotr Wilczewski.The fight will be the Olympic gold medalist’s first since he lost his British title and unbeaten professional record against bitter rival and fellow west Londoner George Groves in May.Frank Warren, DeGale’s promoter, has described the Harlesden super-middleweight’s return as “a make or break fight” that he must win in order to keep alive his hopes of a world title shot.“I don’t fear pressure, I thrive on it, and in this fight I’m looking to go out there and prove that I’m good enough to fight for a world title,” DeGale told West London Sport.“For the majority of my fights, from the Olympic final all the way through my professional career – from the four and six-rounders to going into the lion’s den and fighting for the British title [against Paul Smith] – there’s been pressure.Warren has warned that DeGale simply must beat Wilczewski“Hopefully I’ll win this, will be European champion – champion of three quarters of the world – and then I’ll go and get that other quarter.”DeGale, 25, has been itching to get back into the ring since losing to Groves on a split-decision – a defeat he admits was tough to take.“It’s got better now but the first week or so afterwards did hurt. I had stitches and every time I looked in the mirror it reminded me of the fight,” he said.“I’m a proud boy and I don’t like losing – especially to my worst enemy. But now I’m over it and it’s great news I’ve got this shot at the European title.”Wilczewski, 32, is ranked two in the world by the WBO and has failed to win only one of his 30 fights.Warren and DeGale have both claimed that the Pole is a better fighter than Groves, who is also gunning for a world title after adding the British crown to his Commonwealth belt.“He’s definitely better than Groves. He’s been there and done it – look at his record. But the better opponent I box, the better I fight,” DeGale added.“Groves ran like a chicken and nicked the fight from me. Hopefully he’ll keep on winning and looking good and we can have that rematch.”last_img read more

first_imgQPR face competition from Tottenham for the signing of Nottingham Forest defender Jamaal Lascelles, according to the Daily Mail. West London Sport this week revealed that Rangers had made an offer for the 20-year-old centre-back.And the Mail say Spurs are planning to table a £5m bid for Lascelles, who made 34 appearances for Forest last season.It is also suggested that the player would prefer to stay in the north rather than move to London.Lascelles has been watched by several clubsMeanwhile, the Daily Star claim Eliaquim Mangala wants to join Chelsea despite Manchester City agreeing a £32m deal for the Porto and France defender.And there is speculation over the future of Petr Cech amid reports that he could be ousted as Chelsea’s first choice goalkeeper by Thibault Courtois.The Mirror reports that Cech’s agent Viktor Kolar is confident the 32-year-old will be snapped up by a top European club if he loses his place.Kolar is quoted as saying: “We have not been given any signals that Petr would be made available.“If that was the case, though, you have to realise that Petr is one of the world’s top goalkeepers and has a certain salary.“There are not many clubs who could afford to sign him. If he were to leave, we’re discussing two or three clubs in the world.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_img20 September 2013 Two hospitals and eight clinics in the OR Tambo district are to be demolished and rebuilt from scratch as part of a massive overhaul of the health care system in the Eastern Cape, Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi announced on Thursday. Speaking to journalists in Pretoria, Motsoaledi said that both the Department ofHealth Department and National Treasury were aware of the major health, financial and resources challenges in the Eastern Cape. This was especially the case in OR Tambo, one of 11 districts selected to pilot South Africa’s National Health Insurance (NHI) scheme. Motsoaledi said OR Tambo had been chosen as a pilot district “specifically because we wanted to take that opportunity to fix a multiplicity of problems the district is experiencing”. The district has 167 clinics, 12 community health centres, 13 district hospitals, two regional hospitals and three specialised hospitals. Among the eight clinics to be demolished, five of them will be built during this financial year, with contractors due on site by January 2014. In addition, two nursing colleges, Butterworth Nursing College and Madzine-Ka-Zulu Nursing College, would be fully refurbished, with work starting in October and due for completion by March. Motsoaledi said the national department was working around the clock with the provincial department of halth to improve infrastructure in the rest of the province. “We are implementing 287 projects covering new additions, upgrades, renovations and maintenance work in 132 facilities. One hundred and fifty-nine of these projects are at construction phase, while the rest are at developmental phase.” “A total amount of R1.045-billion has been budgeted for this work up to the end of the financial year.” Motsoaledi said the rebuilding of the Eastern Cape health department had been going on for some time. In May, he and Deputy Health Minister Gwen Ramokgopa had spent four hours with the executive council in Bisho. “Two weeks ago, a new HOD was appointed. He was working here at the head office. After a long time of [having an] acting position, the Eastern Cape has got a permanent CFO and a permanent deputy director-general for human resources. “I have just spoken to the new HOD this week to prioritise appointments in the directorate of pharmaceutical services.” Motsoaledi added that the adverts for new CEO positions at a number of hospitals, after some delay, would be appearing in the media in the next few days.
