Groves Eyes Kessler-Froch, Abraham-Stieglitz Winners

Super middleweight contender George Groves (16-0, 12KOs) expects big things now that he linked up with Matchroom Boxing after revealing his split with Frank Warren. Groves will return to action this Saturday against unheralded Argentinian Dario German Balmaceda over 10 rounds at Wembley Arena on Saturday before plotting a world title shot.

Groves came of age when he defeated domestic and bitter rival James DeGale via a majority decision in May 2011, while he was impressive in beating rugged veteran Glen Johnson on points in his last outing in December last year.

The 24-year-old, who has been confirmed as the chief support slot to fellow super-middleweight Carl Froch's re-match with Mikkel Kessler on May 25, is looking to challenge the winner of Arthur Abraham and Robert Stieglitz's clash for the WBO crown.

"I'm at that level now where I'm knocking on the door for world titles," he added. "I've had to give up my spot as the mandatory for the European title but hopefully that door isn't shut and it's still a possible route, but I'm well ranked in the governing bodies and I want to fight for a world title.

"I'm ranked number one with the WBO and Abraham and Stieglitz fight for that in a few weeks so I'll be keeping a keen eye on that. I'll have just as close an eye on the Froch vs Kessler fight as I really believe I could get a crack at the winner and I think Eddie knows I want that fight so it ties in nicely."
