Should Groves be waiting his turn?

The announcement in midweek that George Groves will be taking on the European super-middleweight champion Christopher Rebrasse with the winner becoming the mandatory challenger for the WBC version of the title currently held by Sakio Bike, hasn?t gone down too well.

Many pundits feel that Groves, having lost his last two world title fights (against Carl Froch), shouldn?t be getting another crack so soon with the leading British promoter, Frank Warren calling it unjust.

Now although I?m a big George Groves fan, I have to say that the criticism is probably correct but, then again, you can?t blame George for grasping this opportunity with both hands.

In fact, after being so soundly beaten second time out by Carl Froch, Groves possibly sees the WBC route as the easier way to realize his dream and is waiting to see who triumphs in the forthcoming WVC title fight between Sakio Bike and Anthony Dirrell, remarking,

?I think they [Bika and Dirrell] both are tough fights but both winnable ones for me.?

?I?m confident of beating both.?

That remains to be seen but the speed at which Groves is finding himself back on the world title scene isn?t liked by all.
