Groves To Return on 9/13 or 9/20, Abraham in 2015?

By Edward Chaykovsky

Super middleweight contender George Groves (19-2, 15KOs) is slated to return on September 13 or 20, according to his promoter Kalle Sauerland of Sauerland Event. Last month, Groves was knocked out in the eight round of his rematch with IBF/WBA 'regular' champion Carl Froch. A crowd of 80,000 fans packed Wembley Stadium to see the rematch.

"George will box on September 13 or 20 and we are looking to get him out in London. He proved against Carl that he belonged at the world level and he was just punished for one mistake. But it hasn't effected George's confidence and the quickest route back for him to a world title is via an eliminator which we are trying to arrange," Sauerland told scribe Nick Parkinson.

One potential big fight for Groves next year is a title clash with WBO king Arthur Abraham. Sauerland is currently talking with promoter Eddie Hearn to stage a fight between Abraham and Paul Smith, possibly on September 27. They are hoping to get Groves a title to make a big unification with Abraham.

"We think Arthur Abraham is a big fight to make possibly next year in a world title unification fight. We want to increase our number of world champions first, so they meet both with a world title each. Paul Smith is on a list and we are very interested in the fight against Abraham, but we have got to make ends meet with Eddie. I can see the fight happening but it's not done yet."

[QUOTE=Badzi87;14676425]3. Abraham hits much much harder than Froch 4. Abraham takes a better shot than Froch[/QUOTE] You're crazy or delusional. The Groves that fought Froch twice would annihilate prime Abraham.

5. Even Froch knew not to trade with Abraham. At some point, after hitting nothing but gloves and that high guard from a distance, it's guaranteed Groves won't be able to resist stepping in and trying to be macho. Lights…

Talk of a "unification" fight with Abraham is weird since Groves doesn't have a title now and Abraham, at this point in his career, is the B- or C-level, second-tier belt holder that guys like Groves generally fight to get…

someone said that groves was trying to be macho in the 2nd fight, actually it kinda looked like he was too cautious, i had him winning the first 3 or4 rds. but the next 3 froch just started throwing volume…
