'Saint' George Groves, aged just 26, will make his return to the ring at Wembley Arena on September 20th following his crushing loss to Carl Froch, according to reports. Groves has propelled himself into the limelight in the last year with his high profile fights with Froch and despite coming out of both fights with losses on his record he has made a big reputation for himself.
Groves has shown that he is more than capable of competing at world level and that he has all the talent to achieve good things in the sport. He has been involved in one of the biggest fights in British boxing history already in his career and to have been headlining at Wembley Stadium in front of 80,000 people is something which will have been a great learning experience for him.
He was not outclassed in either fight and despite suffering an emphatic knock out loss he will see a lot of positives in his performance. The fight was very close with both men having moments of success.
Groves will now return against the European champion Christopher Rebrasse in a WBC world title eliminator. This is a big opportunity for Groves and one which his new promoters the Sauerlands have done very well to obtain.
The Frenchmen Rebrasse aged 28 holds a record of 22 wins, two losses and three draws. The presence of only six knock out victories on his record combined with the mixture of losses and draws will give Groves huge confidence.
Groves will be expected to come out and perform well. He will be expecting to win and win in a very convincing manner if he is to go on and fulfil his undoubted potential. If Groves does win then he would be set for another world title shot but this time against the winner of the Sakio Bika versus Anthony Dirrell fight due to take place on August 16th.
Groves would be confident of beating either man and should he do so he would be an absolute star of the sport from a media and commercial sense. Groves is already a huge name in this country and he has great skill but if he can manage to win a world title then he will become a massive star of the sport in Britain.
Groves possesses fantastic hand-speed, good movement and good power and he really could go on to become a fighter involved in only the biggest fights out there.
The future is very bright for George Groves but for now he needs to remain grounded and keep working hard. He will know that he cannot afford to underestimate his opponent as should he do so he may ruin his chances of fulfilling his dreams.
