Haye Vows To Eliminate The Klitschkos, Backs Groves

The war of words continued today between George Groves & James Degale.  The pair attended the final press conference ahead of their British & Commonwealth Super Middleweight Title Clash which takes place on Saturdat, 21st of May, at the O2 Arena in London.

Despite the provocation from Degale, George Groves kept to his normal dignified response by merely stating "You will see what I have on Saturday night, and he will not have any answers to it.  There will just be me and him in that ring, I will have too much for him". 

Both Groves and Degale were not backing off their previous boasts of victory, now all of the talking has been done, boxing fans will find out who the better fighter is on Saturday night. spoke to WBA World Heavyweight Champion David Haye to ask him on his views on today's proceedings as well as his thoughts on the outcome of the fight.  The Hayemaker said "George has had a fantastic training camp in the lead up to this fight.  All the talking is done and its time for both of them to back up what they have had to say, and in my opinion George will win the fight".

Haye continued "Since day one, I have always believed George has what it takes to go very far, I have no reason to doubt that now.  I will be there on Saturday, its going to be a fantastic fight where we will all be able to see George showcase his skills and prove he is a boxer of the calibre that people should take notice of".

The Hayemaker is in the middle of his own training camp ahead of his clash with Wladimir Klitschko on the 2nd of July.  Asked on his progress Haye stated "my pre-training went really well in Miami, it means now I am in full training for the fight, things are going even better than expected,  this is a massive fight not only for me but also for boxing, I am going to rid the sport, especially the heavyweight division of the boredom fans have had to put up with because of the Klitschko brothers!!

Tickets are still available for Groves v Degale or readers can tune into Sky PPV channels to watch what will be an enthralling fight.

Tony Bellew face told the story after Groves shook the hand of Degale, Booth was thinking 'Did I just see what I think I did?!'. I don't see Groves winning tbh, Booth doesn't seem to have much faith in him…
