Having finally achieved his dream of becoming a world champion, at the fourth attempt, George Groves is set to make his first defence of his WBA super-middleweight belt.

On October 14th, at the SSE Wembley Arena, 29-year-old Groves will put his world title on the line against a fellow British fighter, in the shape of Jamie Cox.

The bout will also form part of the inaugural World Boxing Super Series, a series that will see the winner receive the Muhammad Ali trophy and a huge bag of cash.

Groves is expected to beat Cox and set up a lucrative World Boxing Series semi-final against another British fighter, Chris Eubank Jnr.

But, looking ahead to the fight, against Jamie Cox, Groves has had a few words for the media, remarking,

?I know the things you need in this tournament, such as composure and experience at the highest level, he?s lacking.

?I don?t think he?s even headlined his own show yet. And he?s getting flung in with me.

?This is a big pressure fight and he?ll struggle to cope.?

That may be the case but Groves shouldn?t take Cox too easily otherwise that dream he realised could turn into a nightmare.
