Groves: It is Inevitable That I'll Fight James DeGale Again
George Groves is adamant that he will fight James DeGale again, but only when a world title is on the line. DeGale lost his British super middleweight title to Groves back in May at the O2, and the Olympic gold medallist is determined to organise a rematch.
But although Groves insisted that another fight between the pair was inevitable, he would prefer it to be with a world title up for grabs.
Groves, who is also Commonwealth champion, said: 'It’s inevitable we will fight again. But it will be at the right time. Personally, I won’t feel it’ll be right again until one, or both of us, has a world title. Then the public will demand that it happens and it would be even bigger than our last fight, which was huge.'
Groves thinks the rivalry between the pair - who also met as amateurs when Groves again won - could go down in history.
'You look back to the era when we had Benn, Collins and Eubank and they had some great fights,' he said. 'James and I can be like that if we keep progressing and I think we will.'
