George Groves expects to beat Jamie Cox and retain title

13 Octobre 2017

So focused has George Groves been on defending his WBA super middleweight crown against Jamie Cox at Wembley Arena on Saturday night that he eschewed watching Chris Eubank Jr destroy Avni Yildirim in three rounds in Stuttgart last weekend. "George Groves made a big mistake when he picked Jamie Cox".

The victor on Saturday will fight in the Super Series semi-finals in January against Chris Eubank Jr, who beat Turkey's Avni Yildirim in three rounds on 7 October. We will see if he wants to run or have a fight.

He added: "George Groves to me is not really the most interesting person to listen to". I'm in this tournament as the number one seed.

"I'm always in exciting fights and Jamie is an all-action fighter. Either way I will win".

Cox won light-welterweight gold at the 2006 Commonwealth Games as an amateur, and has held European and Commonwealth super-middleweight belts as a professional. I don't concern myself with what other fighters say about me and I never have. "The fans can expect a great win".

The driver of the Kenworth has been identified as 44-year-old Benjamin Flanagan of Colorado Springs. The crash remains under investigation by the Mount Gilead Highway Patrol Post.

"Jamie is not so big so if he comes in heavy he is going to be slow".

What is the World Boxing Super Series?

World championship belts are also on the line during the individual fights in the new event.

The victor could face undefeated Callum Smith, providing he wins his semi-final, in the final in early 2018.

Smith will face the victor of the fourth quarter-final between Germany's Juergen Braehmer and American Rob Brant, who fight in Germany on 27 October.
