Groves vs Majewski Being Discussed For Froch-Kessler?
By Luke Furman
Mariusz Kolodziej, the head of Global Boxing, announced that there are ongoing negotiations to match Patrick Majewski (21-1, 13 KOs) against British super middleweight George Groves (17-0, 13 KOs) on May 25 in London. The event is headlined by a rematch between super middleweight champions Carl Froch and Mikkel Kessler. Majewski is a career middleweight and would move eight pounds north to make the fight happen.
"Negotiations continue. There is a good chance that this fight will take place," said Kolodziej.
Props to Groves for fighting so frequently, but let's up the ante in terms of competition, eh?Comment by springfiels on 03-21-2013
Yeah I could understand the tune-up/showcase fight at short notice just to get him on the Barker bill.. But come on now, if he's meant to be ready for the Steiglitz-Abraham winner and maybe even Froch in a few fights…Comment by IronDanHamza on 03-21-2013
Ah, that's a shame. I'm sure Hearn said we'd be getting a legit fight for Groves on the undercard.Comment by yoz on 03-21-2013
