David Haye, George Groves Getting in Top Shape in Miami

By Terence Dooley

David Haye and George Groves are in Miami preparing themselves for their biggest nights of their boxing careers.  Haye takes on Wladimir Klitschko in the summer, Groves challenges James DeGale for the British super-middleweight title on May 21st.  'Saint' George has brought in American southpaw Andre Dirrell to prepare for the fight, claiming that holding his own in sparring sessions with the former world title challenger is the perfect preparation going into the grudge clash.

"Dirrell is the fighter DeGale wishes he was," insisted Groves when speaking to Craig Slater of Sky Sports.  "If you watch what DeGale does well you see that Dirrell does it better.  I'm more than holding my own with Andre."

Dirrell concurred, pointing out that both men have borne the marks of battle.  "I've been out for a year so I had to go full fledged the first day.  George did the same, he is a tough fighter, a great fighter," revealed Dirrell.

Haye feels that his friend has lifted his game to another level in order to hang with 'The Matrix'.  "A lot of people believe George is domestic class but he's had to raise it to world class for these sessions," said Haye, who is starting to move through the gears as he prepares for his date with destiny.

"I'm going to be in my peak on either June 25th or July 2nd [the two proposed dates for the Klitschko contest].  I believe I'm in decent shape for where I am and am looking forward to just pushing myself steadily until I'm in peak condition."

What's Dirrell doing? He's going to ruin his life getting back in the ring!! I thought Doctor's diagnosed him with severe brain damage from the tragic concussion he recieved from AA's cheap shot.
