Groves Vows Statement Win, Chin Check of Jack

By Edward Chaykovsky

Super middleweight mandatory challenger George Groves (21-2, 16 KOs) will be looking to check the chin of WBC world champion Badou Jack "The Ripper" (19-1-1, 12 KOs) on September 12th as part of the Showtime Pay-Per-View undercard to Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Andre Berto.

Both Groves and Jack have suffered knockout defeats. Jack was caught cold and stopped by Dereck Edwards in one round last February. He bounced back since then, winning three in a row including his world title victory over Anthony Dirrell in April.

Both of Groves' defeats, by knockout, came at the hands of season veteran Carl Froch. Groves himself has won two in a row and place himself in position for a world title shot.

"I'm fully immersed in this fight with Badou Jack. Everyone wants to know about the future plans, but I leave that up to the promoters. My main concern is winning that WBC belt. I carry power. I have good hands and foot speed. I can control the fight from anywhere. The mistakes that Badou Jack makes, I will take advantage of," Groves said.
 
"I want to announce myself as the best fighter in the division and I'm planning on doing that Sept. 12. There won't be any question marks. After I win this fight, I'll have proof. I'm a valuable commodity in the UK and it's about time I started building my brand in the states. This is a huge opportunity being on the Mayweather card. The undercard will not be overlooked this night
 
"Every fight is more important than the last. It doesn't matter who you fight, it can affect you in a big way. I have a style that will naturally engage with the fans. People like to see me fight. I look to take the opponent out and that will be the same on Sept. 12. Once Badou Jack leaves an opening, I will take it. I plan to look very good doing so."

Oh sh*t this is on the Floyd undercard? I like Groves a bit and thought he was going to have Froch's number in the rematch.
