Waiting for a crack at a version of the world super-middleweight champion, for a fourth time, George Groves latest fight has been announced.

Groves, desperate for the chance to prove he can be a world-champion, is set to take on the former European Boxing Union light-heavyweight champion Eduard Gutknecht.

The fight is scheduled to take place at the Wembley Arena on November 18th and it is being suggested the winner could be getting a crack for the WBC version of the super-middleweight title next year.

Groves will enter the ring with a record that reads 24-3 with 18 of those wins coming inside the distance. His opponent, not considered to be a concussive hitter, will enter the ring with a record that reads 30-4-1 with just 13 wins coming by way of knockout.

Although Groves will welcome the chance to keep sharp by taking this fight, it is disappointing to discover that his opponent, Eduard Gutknecht, doesn?t figure in any of the rating body?s top fifteen fighters.
