At least he’ll get decent fights after Froch crushes him on 31 May. Imagine if he’d signed with Frankie Warren, he’d have George fighting bum ass guys from Peru and Estonia for the next three years. Just ask Carl Frampton 12 months from now how his career is going. Haha.

Decision says.., “Groves gave Froch the beating of his life”

Froch didn’t look bad at all after the fight.. Groves tried to finish Carl off and never came close.. Carl was coming on like gangbusters.

The chump who looked badly hammered after the fight was Groves.

Decision

Groves gave Froch the beating of his life, he did much better than Kessler, due to speed, who cares if you like him or not.

If Groves can beat Froch, he can beat Kessler. Ward has so many problems with his promoter, and his fear of travelling that he is a noone in the smw division.

Groves is the best Smw fighter right now, and this is coming from a die hard Kessler and Froch fan.

Like Groves or not, he has Frochs number, he just needs to keep cool.

Well chicken groves, you are due a new name for your admirable efforts Froch 1. I hope you are equally prepared and incisive for Froch 2. But please learn to clinch in a pinch.
Good luck young man.

Someone said:

Pray tell, what would a backward head look like?
Is this a boxing or a fashion site?
The cut of the job is of less concern than the solidity of the intestinal fortitude. And the robustity of the chin.
So help me god.

CHICKEN GEORGE

Hi. My name is Chicken George Groves and yes, I ducked the rematch with Kenny Anderson who gave me quite a bit of a beating. I made up the same excuse my buddy The Haymaker did and then invented gangsters were after me. I am quite delusional and had doctored the Rubik’s cube to make myself look smart. If someone had pulled me on that and given me another Rubik’s cube, I would have been up shts creek without the proverbial. I am really annoying and even argue with myself in empty rooms. After Wembley I will be moving to Germany to annoy the Germans and make some money before they boot me out.

I remember Groves pulling out of that fight with Scottish Hardcase Kenny Anderson

Funny enough don’t remember him giving smart answers, smirking and playing a rubic cube

The Problem with George Groves

Boxing champion George Groves is living in fear of gunmen who have threatened to shoot him dead in the ring during a live TV fight, it has been claimed.
Mr Groves, 23, from Hounslow, West London, was warned to keep his guard up by police after they received a tip-off that he would be gunned down as he fought.
The British and Commonwealth champion withdrew from his showdown with Kenny Anderson at Wembley Arena on Friday after suffering a back injury while sparring.
His management told The Sun his withdrawal was unrelated to threats against his life. Mr Groves said earlier this week he was ‘not 100 per cent fit’.
But an unnamed source told The Sun: ‘George and Sophie [his fiancee] were told by CID officers a threat had been made on his life and they should consider their safety.
‘The intelligence said if he wasn’t shot before the fight, it would happen in the ring.’
After his withdrawal, Groves confirmed he will not fight Anderson until after he takes on WBO super-middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz.
Anderson had called the world No 12 a ‘coward’ for not fighting him.
Groves said: ‘I am sorry to confirm I have had to pull out of my scheduled fight this Friday due to injury. I hope for a quick recovery but it just won’t be in time for this week.

Am suprised at this development. I was honestly expecting him to hang on and then if he won sign for golden boy or top rank. One vital bit of info is missing from this article though. How long is the contract for? How many fights? People keep waffling on about the IBF belt but the WBA one is in the mix too and its a nightmare to keep one governing body happy let alone 2. This is why a lot of fighters end up vacating. I know that Saurland has got a good relationship with the WBA. Im wondering if this will be a short term deal whic win loose or draw for Groves againt Froch still sets him up for a decent money fight with Kessler.

Annonimous Dave: Murray’s biggest problem is that he can’t get a US visa, which could hold him back big time.

Well, Joker….a € is worth 1/3 more than a $….and with fights on main channel German TV…and that Sourland has a rep of not screwing his fighters….Groves made the right decision. Go where the money is. America is not where the money is.
I’m sure all sorts of American fighters would love come to Germany and be paid in €.

Hi Mick, Yep, I was gonna add all those names you mentioned but I just picked my favs to be honest.

Of them all I like Mitchell Smith the most, have you seen him fight, Mick? He’s a heck of a talent. Early days of course, for many of them. Would be good to see Martin Murray win a world title, he was unlucky in both world title fights. I had him beating Sturm, and he was robbed against Martinez.

Everybody… even Sauerland executives like the guy in this photo, look like they can kick Georgie Porgie’s ass. Groves is one of the wimpiest looking characters I’ve ever seen. That’s why Froch underestimated him.

Groves has a forward head like a computer geek. Froch stands as straight as a tin man and swings like one. Both fighters hit like Hell and get hit with everything. That’s why this match is so big. A guaranteed knockout … Groves early for Froch late.

Groves is an arrogant tool. I’ve watched him since his amateur days & he makes JDG appear humble & likeable. He is a great prospect and a joy to watch when his mouth has a gum shield in it though. Win or lose against Froch, this is a smart move. Groves could earn big money against Kessler, Abraham, Stieglitz or the likes of GG (who isn’t tied to an American promoter). Ward is out of the equation for now, wasting his prime in court battles instead of ring ones. Hopefully Groves can string a couple of good wins and earn lots doing so after Froch, then fight against Ward when he wins contractual freedom.

Groves can’t stand Eddie Hearn so if he wants to continue to be on the big shows he needed to leave British promotors behind so that leads to Germany who put on massive shows. Only other promotor in Britain who could’ve got him the big fights is Warren and he’s been there and been put off for life. With Groves and Price in their ranks this could see a move into the UK market for Sauerland.

Posted May 20, 2014 1:57 pm 


Decision

Speed and power is everything in boxing, Groves has got both, Froch maybe one, power.

I agree, I think that Froch looks scarred, after many hard fights, he would do better against Kessler, who is also over the hill.

Sauerland has seen Groves sparring with Kessler, they have chosen him as the replacement for the viking warrior, they see Groves as a future Smw great, clearly.

Groves clearly needs to improve some of his skills, I would personally love to see how he would do against Kessler, who is a boxer, not just a brawler.

Posted May 20, 2014 1:54 pm 


Gnashers

Froch is such an arrogant tool.
He has got a decent chin though, so it will be very tough for Groves to put him down on the canvas long enough.
I just hope Groves can do it, because Froch pisses everyone off with his attitude.

Posted May 20, 2014 12:30 pm

Froch looked punch drunk in the last interview I saw him, he was slightly slurring his words. Groves will KO him in the rematch. Froch is done, Groves will hammer him.

Decision

Interesting move from Sauerland = Groves is Kessler’s replacement long-term. I think the signing of Groves means that Kessler only have one or two fights left.

I don’t see how one can conclude that Groves now will only meet the likes of Abraham? Why?

Clearly Ward only wants to met someone with a belt, so Groves needs to beat Froch next, which I think he will.

I believe this is the right move for Groves.

OneInchPunch

See the funny thing is…. Groves or Froch will have to face the winner of Degale v Gonzales in there world title elimination bout. So i find it hard to think that Froch or Groves would be fighting anyone else in thier next fight. GGG or Ward will have to wait.. Matchroom in my mind was alway going to pair the winner with the winner of Degale v Gonzales… and espcialy if Degale is the winner… him being a matchroom fighter.

Posted May 20, 2014 9:37 am

Groves can’t knock Froch out. So he will have to develop some movement that lasts the full 12 otherwise he will get hunted down again.

Posted May 20, 2014 8:22 am 


Mick the Marmalizer

I don’t think it’s a bad move actually. If & it is an if he beats Froch then a fight with Kessler or Abraham would sell well on the continent & lead to an eventual contest with Ward or Golovkin (if he makes 168 Lb). Good luck to him!

I CAN NOW see which way Groves is looking to go if he beats Cobra FROCH.
Groves, will look down the European route and take on the likes of ABRAHAM and STIEGLITZ who he believes to be beatable and avoid the likes of Golovkin and Ward who have both called out the winner of the May 31st bout.

Groves was bragging and boasting about how he would face Ward and all the top challengers after beating FROCH, but I believe that all to be hot air and he will dine out on the Froch fight for as long as he can.

There is a long queue forming to face the winner and it includes GGG, Ward, Kessler, DeGale, Bika and even Dirrell.

Groves has scoffed at Froch’s competition. Now, let’s see him man up and back up his boasts of taking on the best at SMW….

Let’s see him get past the Cobra first!
