Groves: Bika or Dirrell - I'm Confident of Beating Both!

By Edward Chaykovsky

British super middleweight contender George Groves (19-2, 15KOs) is focused on capturing the World Boxing Council (WBC) middleweight title before the end of the year. On September 20th at Wembley Arena in London, he will face Christopher Rebrasse (22-2-3, 6KOs) in a final WBC eliminator for a crack at the belt.

If Groves wins in September, he will face the winner of next month's rematch between WBC champion Sakio Bika and challenger Anthony Dirrell. They previously fought to a draw and will trade punches for a second time on August 16th at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

“Dirrell, who is a very good fighter, a very talented fighter, a very talented family in fact. I sparred with him and his brother out in Miami a couple of years ago and he hits hard and he’s very strong. It’s a tough one to call, you go with Bika because of his experience but Dirrell might be that more hungry. I think they both tough fights but both winnable for me, I look forward to getting past Rebrasse and taking on whoever comes through their bout," Groves told Sky Sports.

“I’m confident of beating both men and for me it’s all about becoming world champion and fortunately I’m in a position where that dream can come true.”

Groves may win his Rebrasse fight, but Bika or Dirrell would beat him. Dirrell is too fast, and Bika is a whacked out whirlwind of confusion no man would wanna fight.

Yeah he always confident... he knew for sure he was going to beat Froch both times. Then he got KTFO each time.
