HP Pavilion, San Jose, California - According to Adam Booth, trainer and manager of British/Commonwealth super middleweight champion George Groves (15-0, 12KOs), his fighter is likely not going to fight on September 14th at Wembley Arena in London. Earlier tonight, Groves scored a sensational sixth round stoppage of Francscio Sierra (24-6-1, 22KOs) on the Robert Guerrero-Selcuk Aydin undercard. However, a clash of heads opened up a bad cut above the right eye of Groves in the third.

Booth told that Groves won't be able to spar for at least "four weeks" while the cut is given the proper time to fully heal, and that makes it impossible to take another fight in six weeks - which also pushes back a rematch with mandatory challenger Kenny Anderson.
