Sauerland: Bika Definitely on The Radar For Groves

By Chris McKenna, courtesy of The Daily Star

GEORGE GROVES insists he can still become a world champion despite his dream night ending in nightmare fashion.

The 26-year-old Londoner was sparked out by rival Carl Froch in the eighth round of their IBF and WBA super-middleweight clash at Wembley Stadium.

It is his second defeat on the trot after losing controversially to the Nottingham man in November.

But he has vowed to bounce back and is keen to land another title shot as soon as possible.

Groves said: "I'm still 26 years old. I've just boxed in front of 80,000 people.

"I didn't get the result I wanted, but I was boxing well and I'm sure I'm going to have a long and successful career ahead of me.

"We will go back to the drawing board and we will come back bigger and stronger.

"I will improve. I will come back stronger and I will be world champion.

"I look forward to the time ahead. We gave him a good fight."

Groves signed with Sauerland Promotions just a week before the fight having negotiated his own deal to land the rematch.

Kalle Sauerland - one half of the brother partnership - revealed they already have a plan in place and WBC champion Sakio Bika is an option.

Sauerland said: "We've got plans A, B and C. It will be a quick process.

"Sakio Bika? He's definitely on the radar. He's a great champion."

GERORGE is coming from a KO loss so a tune up fight first,then jump on BIKA. He is in a danger mental territory now,they don't have to push him too much IMO,he is only 26y so.....

Bika would walk Groves down and probably stop him. I'd go for Kessler or Abe if i were him.

Groves would need a fight to get himself back on track & it would b 4 Bika's WBC belt, but where...it would b a semi if it's in CA, Groves won't draw in the US...

Is Smith mandatory for Abe ?

Comment by BattlingNelson on 06-02-2014

It wouldnt be wise to put Groves in with a worldclass opponent straight away. The Froch fights has taken an immense mental toll. I believe Groves needs a long vacation foloowed by a tune-up or two before looking for bigger…
