This Saturday, at the Liverpool Echo Arena, George Groves aims to stay in shape ahead of his world title challenge, with a fight against Denis Douglin.

Pundits around the globe are suggesting this will be a one sided fight with Groves not being troubled by the un-ranked opponent.

But, as we all know in this sport of ours, nothing should be taken for granted and ahead of his big night in Liverpool, Groves has had this to say about his American opponent,

?It?s a tough, meaningful fight before I challenge for the world title.?

?He?s called Momma?s Boy but it is a risky fight. I?m not going to walk in and blast him out.?

?He is certainly a rival to be respected.?

?But I know how to deal with a southpaw ? I grew up sparring them and I?ve never lost to one.?

Careful George, there?s always a first time!
