On September 20, ‘’Saint’’ George Groves (19-2, 15 KOs) returns in a final eliminator for the WBC World Super Middleweight title against European Champion Christopher Rebrasse (22-2-3, 6 KOs). Team Sauerland is pleased to announce that the ‘’Return of the Saint’’ will be available to watch live on Sky Sports in association with Matchroom Boxing.
 
‘’I am thrilled to be back boxing on Sky Sports,’’ said Groves. ‘’It is a great platform for boxing in the UK.

I’m sure with their continued support everyone will be able to see me lift the WBC belt live on Sky Sports in the near future.’’
 
Said promoter Nisse Sauerland: ‘’We are delighted this fight will be on Sky Sports, where George has found his home in recent years. Considering the importance of this fight for George’s career, this is the icing on the cake in terms of making it a big night for British boxing. We are also very happy to be working with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing to bring fans an action-packed undercard.’’ 
 
Said Eddie Hearn: “Delighted to reach an agreement with Team Sauerland to broadcast George Groves’ clash with Christopher Rebrasse at The SSE Arena on Sky Sports. Following the success of the Froch vs. Groves card at Wembley Stadium, we felt it was important to keep George on Sky, with some huge domestic and international fights at Super Middleweight sure to be in the mix. The undercard will feature a number of top Matchroom Boxing fighters, with a full card to be announced shortly
