Default George Groves: ‘I’ll fight any British super-middleweight’

GEORGE GROVES says he’s ready to meet his domestic rivals at super-middleweight as he returns to action at the Copper Box Arena in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, live on Sky Sports – if the clashes lead to world title fights.

Groves faces Andrea di Luisa in east London in his first fight since his slender loss against Badou Jack in Las Vegas in September, and the three-time World title challenger accepts that it’s going to take a few fights to get back to the level he wants to operate at.

The super-middleweight division remains as vibrant as ever, and English fighters are at the forefront. Groves’ old foe James DeGale MBE holds the IBF crown, while Jack could soon come up against Liverpool star Callum Smith after his April clash with European champion Hadillah Mohoumadi was sanctioned as a final eliminator. Add St Helens’ Martin Murray into the mix, and the Brit pack are right in the mix for the major honours, and Groves believes he can emerge as the cream of the crop – but is in no rush to gain another win over DeGale.

“I’ll fight anyone that is put in front of me,” said Groves. “Right now, it’s January, it’s my first fight since the Jack fight and it’s Andrea di Luisa. He’s boxed at a high level and has wins and losses at that level, he’s here to present problems and he has a style that if you are not switched on he will take advantage of your mistakes. I believe he’ll ty and set traps for me but at the same time I think he’ll give me openings and I will take them and get a good knockout win to kick-of 2016 in style.

“I could’ve come back and had a fight down the bottom of an undercard and knocked out some nobody inside two or three rounds, but I haven’t done that. I’m topping the bill live on Sky Sports against an opponent that is going to be hungry, he’s live and he’s here to ask serious questions. Di Luisa is a good fighter and the perfect fight for me to get myself back into the mix. I want to get two or three fights before the summer and then we can look at where we are at ranking-wise and see what opportunities are open to me.

“I’ve got nothing but good will to James DeGale. He’s had his own tough times, but right now he’s riding high. A lot of people have said his last fight with Lucian Bute was closer than the six rounds he was given it by, but I didn’t see it. As long as he’s still winning, good luck to him. My time will come and I am not worried about him, I just have to concentrate on myself, get the win at the weekend to kick 2016 off in style.

“I should be in contention for another World title in the summer because I have the profile and the performances to match. If James is still World champion then maybe our paths will cross, but I am just focused on getting myself into range of a World title shot and that’s what I want.”

Groves’ clash with Di Luisa headlines a huge night of action in London as John Wayne Hibbert defends his Commonwealth and WBC International super lightweight titles against Tommy Martin.

John Ryder meets the ‘Brit Basher’ Sergey Khomitsky for the vacant WBA International middleweight title while his gym-mate Martin J Ward defends his WBC International super-featherweight strap against Italian Mario Pisanti.

Former football star Leon McKenzie continues his charge towards titles in the ring in a final eliminator for the English super-middleweight title against Kelvin Young and Brentwood’s Kris Agyei-Dua defends his Southern Area super-welterweight title against Chadwell Heath’s Ben Hall.

There’s a host of young talents on the bill with Watford featherweight Reece Bellotti tasting eight-round action for the first time in the paid ranks, action for Brixton’s lightweight banger Ohara Davies, Bermondsey welterweight Ted Cheeseman, Crystal Palace super-middleweight Craig Richards, West Ham super-bantamweight Lucien Reid, Wimbledon welterweight Louis Adolphe, Rainham light-heavyweight Charlie Duffield and Chelsea light-Heavyweight Deion Jumah.

Even though he stopped Di Luisa it wasn't impressive.

Last times Groves looked deadly was in the Alcoba fight and early in the first Froch fight

St. George Groves has says that he wouldn't mind fighting
on the untelevised portion of the undercard of Pac-Bradley III
where his stablemate who's also, promoted by Team Sauerland
"King" Arthur Abraham is taking on Gilberto Ramirez-Sanchez, it
would be a good opportunity for boxing fans to see Groves fight
again in America. Perhaps a decent top 15 Super Middleweight?
