Groves final - it's on!
George deserves his place in the final, I deserve a chance to win a world title, and it’s the fight that the fans want to see. We have all had to be a little patient, but it's now confirmed... I will be fighting George Groves in the final of the World Boxing Super Series.
When and where? I'm not 100% sure, it's for the tournament to decide and then announce so fans will have to continue to be patient. But if everything goes according to plan, it will be in August/September in the U.K. I would expect there to be an announcement on that very soon.
I have a great amount of respect for Groves and don't anticipate this turning in to a circus. What fans will get is top level boxing: Brit vs Brit, WBSS #1 seed vs #2 seed, world #1 vs world #3, WBA (super) champ vs WBC Diamond champ. Add the Ali Trophy in to the mix and the great show that the World Boxing Super Series put on and there is no doubt that this will be a massive night for British boxing. I can't wait to be a part of it!
I have been in camp for a while now so will take a short break before getting back in the gym, preparing for the biggest fight of my career.
Thank you to everyone for your continued support and I hope you all get behind and support this great fight.
