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.

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…

Ah, that's a shame. I'm sure Hearn said we'd be getting a legit fight for Groves on the undercard.
