George Groves: I Feel Like I'm in The Form of My Life

George Groves believes he is "boxing better than ever" ahead of his WBA super-middleweight title defence against Callum Smith in the World Boxing Super Series.

Groves, 30, has seen off Jamie Cox and Chris Eubank Jr. on his way to the final of the tournament, where Smith awaits in Jeddah.

The Londoner suffered a dislocated shoulder in the fight with Eubank in February, causing some concern ahead of the showpiece bout, but he is in confident mood heading to Saudi Arabia.

"My name's been linked to Callum a long time. I've seen him fight numerous times over the years," Groves told Sky Sports.

"I feel like I'm in the form of my life, boxing better than ever. I don't see Callum posing a problem for me on fight night.

"Obviously we've got to be on our A-game, but we know how to beat him. We're getting good stuff off in the gym already and, like always, it's just another fight."

And beyond the fight with Smith, Groves continues to target a bout at Stamford Bridge, the home of his boyhood football club Chelsea.

"Stamford Bridge would be a dream. It would be fantastic," he said. "Just as much for a few of my Chelsea family and a few of my old pals.

"They know which pub to go in beforehand, they know how to get there, which entrance to get into, and how to get home. It would be great.

"They're not short of a few quid, Chelsea, so they won't be fussed about the revenue for hosting, and they don't probably want us destroying the pitch, so we have to get in there two weeks in the summer.

"One day, definitely, it would be great."
