British and Commonwealth Super Middleweight Champion George Groves will headline the Wembley Arena on Friday, the 14th of September.
 
But first the Hammersmith star is US bound when he takes on tough Mexican Francisco Sierra in San Jose, California, on Saturday 28th July in a ten round contest which can be seen live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).
 
This will be Groves' second appearance in the America, his first was against Alfredo Contreras in Las Vegas in July 2010 who he stopped in the sixth round.
 
Providing he comes through unscathed, he could then face fierce Scottish rival Kenny Anderson at Wembley Arena which is subject to purse offers for Groves' British title.
 
September will be a bumper month on BoxNation that will also feature the mouthwatering clash between WBO World Lightweight Champion Ricky Burns and Kevin Mitchell.
 
Unbeaten Groves put on a sensational performance at the famous London boxing landmark last November when he halted former British champion Paul Smith in the second round.
 
He was scheduled to face Anderson in March but had to withdraw because of a back injury and then his WBO World title fight against Robert Stieglitz in May had to be cancelled after he suffered a broken nose in sparring.
 
Groves is now raring to make up for lost time with two great performances in the coming months.
 
"It's been a frustrating time with injuries, but I'm through that now and I'm really looking forward to getting back into action,"
 
"I'm excited to return to America next week which is a great opportunity to expand my American fan base with a hot performance against Sierra who will give me a tough fight,"
 
"Then on my return, if it's going to be Anderson, then I don't need motivating to destroy him,"
 
"He's been mouthing off ever since the fight was cancelled in March, I'll have great pleasure in giving him another beating."
 
The Wembley card will feature two further big title fights: Billy Joe Saunders' first defence of his Commonwealth Middleweight Championship that he won in quick time at the Royal Albert Hall, and unbeaten prospect Bradley Skeete goes for the first title in his career when he takes on Chas Symonds for the Southern Area Welterweight title.
 
An action packed undercard featuring the best in London talent with super-middleweight Frank Buglioni continuing his meteoric rise in a four round contest as he looks to take his record to 6-0, plus light-welterweight Gary Corcoran and featherweight Mitchell Smith.
 
Tickets, priced at £40, £50, £75 and £100, are available from the Wembley Arena Box Office on 0844 815 0815 or online at www.wembleyarena.co.uk Tags: George Groves , Kenny Anderson , Groves-Anderson , Groves vs Anderson
