Groves: I Don't Need That Much To Beat James DeGale
By Chris LaBate
George Groves (12-0, 10KOs) is hungry for the chance to face his British super middleweight rival, James DeGale (9-0, 7KOs). Adam Booth, the manager and trainer, says he is very close to reaching a deal for the date and venue with Degale's promoter, Frank Warren. Groves returned to action on Saturday night in Yorkshire, stopping Daniel Allotey in four one-sided rounds.
DeGale's achievements as an amateur, and a pro, don't impress Groves.
"Whether or not it's by knockout or decision I don't care. I've got everything I need ready for this fight already - and I don't need that much to beat James DeGale anyway," Groves said.
Groves is a warrior with good power in both hands and has all the attacking tools, including the uppercut, but his defence is poor. Degale's straight punches will do the business inside five rounds.Comment by J.R on 03-05-2011
