As countless tired gamers can attest, Kinect Sports boxing is a tough workout, but it's so gruelling even professionals use it to keep their training interesting.

Professional boxer James DeGale recently took media behind the scenes at his gym in Essex, where he revealed he loves nothing more than a bit of Kinect Sports boxing to keep him in shape.

That said, DeGale did recently lose a high-profile bout at the O2, so perhaps he might want to check out the Kinect Sports Calorie Challenge DLC to keep his workout fresh.

"Klitschko will knock him out”

DeGale regroups post Groves fight with predictions on David Haye and Britain’s Olympic boxing hopefuls
James DeGale dusted himself off following his controversial points defeat at the O2 against George Groves at the weekend by inviting media to a closed doors training session in his gym in Essex. DeGale showed off a snapshot of his training methods, incorporating the boxing game on Kinect Sports, for Xbox 360.

Commenting on David Haye’s forthcoming fight against Wladimir Klitschko, DeGale said: “He’s (Klitschko) tough, strong, a big man…it’s close to call, but I think he will knock him (Haye) out…” He also made his Olympic British boxing predictions, naming flyweight Khalid Yafai, heavyweight Danny Price and middleweight Anthony Ogogo as his 3 boxers to watch at London 2012
