Haye: We Always Knew Groves Could Beat DeGale

WBA world heavyweight champion David Haye has tipped stablemate George Groves to emulate his own ring exploits and claim a world title.

Groves, 23, defeated Olympic gold medallist James DeGale on points last weekend to add the British super-middleweight title to his Commonwealth strap Haye believes the double domestic champion is only just getting started.

"George proved a lot of people wrong on Saturday night, but his performance was no surprise to me or his trainer Adam Booth," said Haye.

"We've always believed George has the style, intelligence and ability to get the better of James and that's what played out at the weekend. George boxed beautifully at times and was giving DeGale problems he had never encountered before.

"George never made any crazy claims or boasts before the fight, and always remained quietly confident and humble. As a result, people warmed to him and got behind him on the night.

"It was an incredible feeling to walk with George towards the ring at the O2 Arena and hear the cheers of over 15,000 fans. The whole atmosphere felt like a world title fight between two experienced champions.

"It's easy to forget that George is a British and Commonwealth champion with only 13 professional bouts to his name. If Saturday night was a sign of things to come, George can look forward to many more packed-out nights in big arenas. That fight alone has made him an overnight star."

[QUOTE=Russ James]Maybe the skill-level of the fighters involved wasn't that high, but this fight is of interest because a loud-mouth punk got his ass beat and people love it when that happens. Great job Groves.[/QUOTE]damn straight.

Well done Groves.......but..........you wont win a world title. At least not in the next 18 months while the current crop of SMW elites are in their primes.
