Groves Jumping To Matchroom, Parts From Frank Warren

By Terence Dooley

Super middleweight contender George Groves has parted company with Frank Warren and hooked up with Eddie Hearn. Groves was due to fight on Warren's March 16 show at London's Wembley Arena, but will instead join Matchroom's stable. The 24-year-old will now fight on Hearn's March 9 "London's Calling" card, which takes place at Wembley Arena and is headlined by Darren Barker's vacant IBF Inter-Continental middleweight title fight with Simone Rotolo.

Adam Booth, the trainer of Groves, has exclusively told BoxingScene.com that the decision was made and received amicably. "It is George's decision to take his career in a different direction." said Booth. "It is a relatively short-term decision that both myself and Frank Warren have discussed. The personal relationship between George Groves and Frank Warren is a healthy one, and we'd like it to remain that way. We are grateful to Frank for the big fights George has had that have been promoted by Frank, and we want to quash all of these rumours that seem to be flying around in regards to the change of direction to George's career."

Former British and current Commonwealth 168lb champion Groves, 16-0 (12), joined Warren on a reputed three-year deal in 2011 and has had three wins under Warren's stewardship Paul Smith (KO 2), Francisco Sierra (TKO 6) and Glen Johnson (W12) respectively. Groves will now feature on the undercard of Carl Froch versus Mikkel Kessler on May 25; he could present "The Cobra" with a ready-made comeback fight should Froch lose to his Danish rival.

BoxingScene would also like to apologise unreservedly to Mr. Warren for the inaccurate comments made in our original article in regards to Groves's decision to part company with Warren and the reasons behind that decision. These reasons have now been fully outlined by Adam Booth.

[QUOTE=IronDanHamza]This is very true. We need Warren to survive to keep Boxnation. They miss out on some fights but we get a lot more fights with them than we did without them. I mean, we would NEVER get a fight liker Abril-Borgere like we are tonight when we only had Sky and Premier Sp...

As for Boxnation, it is really damn good for a true boxing fan. I subscribe but jump on boxing guru for the chat lol. Better to give him my 10 quid a month than not. Posted from Boxingscene.com App for Android

[QUOTE=IronDanHamza]I think it's the best option. For me, Matchroom is the best boxing promotion in the UK. I wonder how this effects Warrens UK March card? I assume that fights off? Or what?[/QUOTE] Fights off and Groves will fight this Saturday on the Hearn card in a non title fight.

I like Hearn. I met Erick The Eagle Ochieng who he promotes. He lives near where I work. Posted from Boxingscene.com App for Android

I agree with you about Warren keeping going so Boxnation keeps on going too but Cleverley and Burns do need to leave Warren. The only reason Warren is putting Burns in these tough fights is because burns has been vocal about fighting the best
