Groves Withdraws From Anderson Rematch, Event Off
Editor's Note: BoxingScene.com reported earlier that SES Boxing won a purse bid for the fight between WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz, and George Groves, who is currently the mandatory challenger.
British Super-Middleweight Champion George Groves has been forced to withdraw from his title defence against Kenny Anderson this Friday (16th of March) at the Wembley Arena due to medical reasons.
Groves v Anderson, which was the main event on the show, will be postponed and a new date will be advised in due course.
Promoter Frank Warren said, "Of course, it's bitterly disappointing for us and all the boxers involved, but in sport injuries occur and there is very little anyone can do about it. We had already lost Matthew Hall, who was due to box Sam Webb in a championship eliminator, because of an injury and now with George withdrawing from the main event I have had no option but to postpone the whole card until a later date. Once my team have spoken to Wembley about a new date I hope we can get this fight on very soon."
