GEORGE GROVES admits only a stoppage win over veteran Glen Johnson on Saturday will be good enough for some critics.

The Londoner will fight for only the second time this year due to injuries which cost him a WBO super-middleweight title shot in May.

But Commonwealth champ Groves, 24, hopes to edge closer to a world title bid with victory over Jamaican Johnson, 43, who was out-pointed by Carl Froch last year in the first of three losses in a row.

He said: “It would be a big statement if I could stop Johnson because he has only ever been stopped by Bernard Hopkins.

“People will say I’ve come on and mean business. He lasted the distance recently with the likes of Lucian Bute and Carl Froch for world titles.

“If I do a one-sided job on him people will say I’m a world class fighter and doing well.”

Top of the bill is Scot Ricky Burns, who defends his WBO world lightweight title in the main event against an opponent to be determined.

Burns and Groves v Johnson, Saturday, BoxNation (Sky Ch 437/Virgin Ch 546).

Really wish Johnson would have stayed retired after the Fonfara loss. He's such a stand-up guy, I don't want to see him get KO'd.

Glen is not even a et now, but a completely shot boxer, who, in his last bout was lurching, reaaching and lunging by rnd 3...this bout 4 Groves proves nothing vs a 42+ yr old ...time 4 all box commishes 2 pull his liscense...

I think a stoppage win is very likely. Johnson is a shell of his former shell and Groves packs a punch in that right hand. Johnson will need to stay on him because if he gives him the time, he'll get outboxed and countered all night. It's one of those big right hand counters that I see being r...
