GEORGE GROVES is going camping in the woods to ensure he is ready to cut down Christopher Rebrasse and land another world title shot.

The London super-middleweight takes on the French European champion on September 20 at Wembley Arena as he looks to bounce back from his KO loss to Carl Froch.

The winner has been promised a shot at Sakio Bika or Anthony Dirrell, who square off for the WBC title next month.

And Groves, who was knocked out in emphatic fashion by Brit rival Froch in May, knows this fight is make-or-break for him.

The Chelsea-mad fighter has now lost two on the spin with his previous fight against Froch also ending in a stoppage.

But this time he is heading to America for a month as part of his training camp and will take in LA and Las Vegas as well as the famous Big Bear camp in the Californian woods.

Groves, 26, said: "We are going to the States for a training camp so we figured we would do it like men and grow beards.

"We thought we had a perfect camp for the last fight and we still do. We don't have any success to hang our hat on yet, but we've done some really good work.

"We trained through a keyhole for the last eight months for the same man. It was all in London so it will be nice and refreshing to go away.

"We will sleep in tents in the woods, we will go from one gym to the next and see what action we can rustle up.

"We just want a bit of a change, and this is perfect.

"In many ways this is a make-or-break fight, a fight I can't afford to lose and I will make sure I don't."

Groves' promoters Sauerland were prepared to offer the Londoner an easy comeback fight but he had no interest in taking things slowly.

He added: "I felt I was in a position not to take too many steps back and I don't think I have taken a step back."

[QUOTE=wiz1030]He wants to get back on track and I'm not usre how you can blame him. He just lost the biggest fight of the year in his backyard with 80k in attendance. Cool to see Groves training in Big Bear though, he's getting good sparring there with GGG.[/QUOTE] There's a number of pr...

Groves is a quality fighter, he can still win a title. Skills, speed and power are there, we'll just need to see how he responds to being flattened by the Cobra.
