Stieglitz vs Groves Purse Bid is Ordered For March 12th

By Osmond Rodriguez

In a strange move, the WBO has ordered a purse bid for a mandatory fight between super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz (41-2, 23KOs) and British challenger George Groves (14-0, 11KOs).

I doubt whether this will be anything to do with Warren - Kessler will beat Stegliez, which means Groves will become mandatory against Kessler. Booth said not long ago Groves needs a lot more polishing before moving to World level…
