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.
