By Edward Chaykovsky

According to the Daily Mirror, super middleweight contender George Groves (19-2, 15 KOs) will potentially return to action on a date in mid-September, and then come back on a date in December against the winner of the upcoming rematch between WBC super middleweight champion Sakio Bika (32-5-3, 21 KOs) and undefeated Anthony Dirrell (26-0-1, 22 KOs).

Groves, who a few months ago signed a promotional contract with European powerhouse Sauerland Event, is looking to get back on track after losing back to back fights to domestic rival Carl Froch, who holds the IBF/WBA 'regular' titles at 168-pounds.

After 80,000 fans came to Wembley Stadium to watch his rematch with Froch, it won't be hard for Sauerland to stage an event at any venue in the UK with Groves as the headliner. The paper states that Groves' preference is to face Bika, should he win on August 16th.

Besides Groves, Sauerland also promotes two other major names at the weight, WBO champion Arthur Abraham and Danish superstar Mikkel Kessler, and next year one of them could be matched against Groves in a major event.

[QUOTE=285Kid]0 - 2 in the last 2 + His not in the WBC ranking http://i.imgur.com/ay27mk6.png WBC need to make him fight one of the top 3 first[/QUOTE] Glad to know Ramirez and Chavez Jr are ranked right next to each other, that fight would be amazing to watch.

I hate froch lads. I wanted groves to win but I had doubts about him stamina and chin. Froch said thats the difference between the fighters at top level. He only stopped bute and taylor all the rest went the distance with him expect for mack who always gets koed and groves.

[QUOTE=mrbigshot]why would froch say that about his right hand, he always says he hits hard[/QUOTE] He did say it, but obviously he was just saying that as another dig at Groves. If i remember correctly he also said it was the best punch he'd ever thrown.
