Kenny Anderson-Robin Reid For Groves' Vacant Title

By Shaun Brown

After a long and drawn out saga, Scotland's Kenny Anderson, 17-1 (12), will finally get a chance to get fight for the vacant British super middleweight title against former world champion Robin Reid, 42-7-1 (29), on October 20th in Sheffield.
 
Anderson has been craving a rematch with former champion George Groves since their mini war for the Englishman's Commonwealth title in 2010. Since then injuries to Groves and additional postponements have put the much-anticipated rematch on hold. There is no confirmation yet as to whether Groves has vacated the title or has been stripped.
 
Anderson v Reid, each possessing genuine punching power, will be part of the undercard to Kell Brook's final eliminator for the IBF world welterweight title against Hector Saldivia.
 
Full reaction to follow to the news that "The Widowmaker will face "The Grim Reaper."

Personally I was pleased when Groves/Stieglitz fell though as the WBO title means nothing compared to the Lonsdale belt.

How is Groves to blame for another man's decisions? Groves is doing his own thing, had a world title shot lined-up before withdrawing with an injury. Was scheduled to fight Anderson at one point, re-arranged and then cancelled through another…
