Over the weekend, it was officially confirmed that George Groves will fight Fedor Chudinov for the world title on 27th May.

The fight will be on the undercard that will see Kell Brook face Errol Spence Jnr for the IBF welterweight title at Bramall Lane, the home of Sheffield United Football Club.

For Groves it will be a fourth opportunity to win a world crown having fallen short in two attempts against Carl Froch and last time out against Badou Jack.

For Groves it will be his first fight since he stopped the German fighter, Eduard Gutknecht.

Sadly, Gutknecht picked up injuries that night of a life-changing nature after a bleed on the brain.

Many pundits believe that the German?s corner-men should have pulled their man out as he was out-classed by Groves.

Speaking about that night Groves had had this to say,

‘It’s very distressing.

‘We don’t know if his situation will deteriorate or if anything will happen.

‘We feel for him, his wife, kids and family. It’s horrible.?

And further adding about how it could affect him in a fighting capacity, Groves remarked,

‘Selfishly, while I’m still fighting I’m always going to struggle with his situation.

?It’s a horrible thing. I struggle with it; my wife struggles with it.’

Hopefully, what happened on that night won?t affect Groves too much as he goes for a world title, boxing is a sport and what happened to Gutknecht was a tragic accident.
