Frank Warren Promotions: Groves-Johnson a Done Deal

By Terence Dooley 

Frank Warren Promotions reached out to BoxingScene.com earlier today to dispute previous reports elsewhere regarding the status of the announced December 15 fight between London’s George Groves (15-0, 12KO), and Glen Johnson (51-17-2, 35KO). 

Johnson told World Boxing News that he is unaware of the contest being finalized, only that it was mentioned as a possibility. Similar comments were echoed on the Twitter page of ESPN's Dan Rafael .

Frank Warren Promotions suggests otherwise. 

"It's a done deal," Warren's office offered to BoxingScene.com in a brief statement.
 
Johnson, 43, dropped a decision to Andrzej Fonfara in Canada in July and seemed set for retirement. Pending confirmation of the bout being finalized, he will now meet Groves, 24, at London’s ExCel Arena on December 15. 

Groves' Commonwealth super middleweight title will be at stake. The fight comes on the heels of his impressive July 28 demolition of  Francisco Sierra in California.

Johnson embarrased ESPN. They gave him a Swan Song and he walked the well wishers walk through the crowd and everyone gave him warm approaches on his announced retirement and now he flips on all of that. Not to mention he doesn't know when to quit. He is going to become another sad case.

Coming off 3 loss's and looked absolutely terrible in his last 2 fights. Fight does nothing for Groves.

With Johnson, you can always expect him to do very well up until the 8th round, possibly be leading but then after that all falls apart, sucks :( It's a good fight though.

At least Groves is becoming active again, he's had a terrible year. Hopefully 2013 will be a better one for him.
