James DeGale: Groves is Wannabe, I Want Him Gone

By Mark Vester

Super middleweight James DeGale (10-0, 8KOs) wants to knock George Groves (12-0, 10KOs) out as soon as possible. The two British rivals will meet on May 21 at London’s O2 Arena. There has been a debate about whether or not the fight is coming up too soon. DeGale doesn't care about the match being built over a longer period of time. He wants to get rid of Groves quickly.

"I just want him out of the way," he said to Sky Sports. "I don't want to hear about him no more after this, I don't want to see him after this. People say let the fight build, let the money grow, but I want this done, soon as I can. When I knock him out that is the last time I will have to hear his name, see his face."

DeGale believes Groves is attempting to imitate the personality and the fighting style of his promoter, WBA heavyweight champion David Haye. Early fireworks is what DeGale is asking for. He wants Groves to come out swinging.

"I don't know what he is, what he is trying to be," he said. "Ok, when we were on Ringside, he probably shaded it but that makes it one-all after the press conference, but I don't get why he was sat there with his suit on, trying to be something he's not, throwing all them one-liners about. That's not George Groves.

"All I see is a cross between David Haye and Adam Booth. That's all he is. Why is he trying to box like that, be all defensive? That's all they've done for him, made him more defensive. I don't know why he's trying to fight like that. I hope he comes out and just throws them big bombs, that's what George Groves does. That's all he's got."
