George Groves Likely For Froch vs. Kessler II Undercard

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

GEORGE GROVES is set to announce tomorrow that he has left Frank Warren for rival promoter Eddie Hearn – and will now fight next at Wembley Arena on Saturday.

The unbeaten super-middleweight, 24, has had his last three bouts with Warren since his points win over British rival James DeGale in 2011.

He was due to meet Mouhamed Ali Ndiaye for the European title on Warren’s show at Wembley Arena on March 16 but is now poised to switch to Hearn and will be in action next weekend in a non-title bout.

Groves is then set to fight again at London’s O2 Arena on the undercard of IBF champion Carl Froch’s super-middleweight world title unification clash with WBA king Mikkel Kessler on May 25.

A showdown with Froch, also promoted by Hearn’s Matchroom company, is now a real possibility for Londoner Groves.

[QUOTE=Sn1;13105551]looool he WAS a lightweight and not a cherry picking scrub like some welterweights I can think of. Hatton's record as a lightweight was legit, he just had 5-10 bum fights too many in the middle of his career which…

Such brilliant news, especially for those who have Froch vs Kessler tickets. I'm a big Groves fan and with him being promoted by Warren was scared to see Warren do to him what he did to Calzaghe and Hatton. Well…
