George Groves could be set to agree a clash with WBO super-middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz only days after pulling out of his planned rematch with Kenny Anderson.
The British and Commonwealth champion had been only a matter of days away from stepping in the ring with Anderson for the second time, only to pull out at the last minute with injury. The news of the cancellation came days after Groves had seen his world ranking improve, putting him in a mandatory position for a world title fight against Stieglitz. Even fans of the best Manny Pacquiao betting
should remember this.
While the news brought plenty of criticism from Anderson and his camp, Groves has been insistent that his injury is genuine, although, the Englishman has now admitted a rematch against the Scot
will now have to wait until after his world title shot.
"All clouds have a silver lining and although I have really worked hard to get ready for this fight that won't happen this week, I'm sure it will happen down the line."
"Maybe after I challenge and win the WBO super-middleweight championship which I am now mandatory for and which is scheduled for the next few months."
"I'm bringing another world title to Britain."
After just 14 professional fights, Groves is still very wet behind the ears in terms of his boxing life and this world title shot could be coming too early in his career. The Londoner won't be bothered about that however, and appears confident of achieving an impressive climb to the top, despite his inexperience.
