Groves Drifting Away From Hearn To American Promoter?

By Edward Chaykovsky

According to a report in Daily Mail, super middleweight contender George Groves (19-1, 15KOs) is considering promotional offers from Golden Boy, Top Rank, Lou DiBella and K2 Promotions. Groves' promotional deal with Eddie Hearn of Matchroom has expired, says the boxer.

Groves is coming off a controversial nine round TKO defeat to IBF/WBA "regular" champion Carl Froch. He prefers to face Froch next in a rematch, but the Nottingham boxer is not interested.

"There's an awful lot of promoters interested in me,' Groves said. 'Because obviously I'm an exciting fighter in a good division, and I've got a successful future. I'm doing my job right and they're interested. Plenty from Stateside – four from Stateside, all the big players are interested. I'm in a good position, I'm happy.'

Ive been following him for a couple yrs now and I was excited to see him fight on that undercard last year.. I think it was in San Jose maybe?...against Santana. I thought he got a pretty good reaction from…

I can see him going with DiBella. Think that's the best move for him if he does leave. DiBella has international reach and it wouldn't be wise to get stuck on one of the cold warring companies especially at SMW/LHW

I like Groves, but I don't think he has the style to develop an American following. Most Americans didn't even see his Froch fight, which is the main thing he has going for him. He should stick to a British…
