Although George Groves had been widely tipped to return to the ring in September, the assumption was that Groves would be eased back into action after his loss to Carl Froch.

But that isn?t the case. Groves, after his failed attempt at trying to claim the IBF and WBA versions of the super-middleweight world title is, instead, heading down the route to claim the WBC version.

In a fight that is being heralded as a final eliminator for the WBC version of the title, Groves has been matched against the current European champion Christopher Rebrasse for the European title.

The fight will take place on 20th September at the Wembley Arena with the winner set to take on Sakio Bika for the wold title.

Talking about his return to the ring, Groves has had this to say,

‘It is great to be back at Wembley and back to world-class boxing.?

‘Last time I was here it didn’t go as well as I would’ve hoped, but I think I have proved I belong here.?



Win this fight and I am back in the picture. I can’t wait to be world champion and it will happen in the near future.?



It’s good to be back in boxing and back in at the deep end.’


As for his opponent, Rebrasse has a decent record of 22 wins, 2 defeats and 3 draws but perhaps his punch power isn?t anything to be feared with only 6 of those 22 wins coming by a stoppage.
