Groves also went on to draw comparisons with his recent matchup against the rugged Martin Murray who also moved up from middleweight to challenge ‘The Saint’. “Murray was similar. He wasn’t as big as me. He couldn’t find his range and I was landing big heavy shots on him … I was in full control”.
Groves then explained he feels he will land similar shots against Cox but unlike his meeting with Murray he doesn’t feel Cox will be able to weather the storm. Furthermore Groves said “Once I set a few traps and he falls for them, I’m going to land big shots and he’s going to go”.
Jamie Cox also gave his account of how he feels the fight is going to go, arguing that upcoming fight will be a matter of who wants it more and raw hunger as opposed to just simply who is bigger.
“George Groves has been eating lobster, while I’ve been eating crisp sandwiches”. Cox went on to explain he feels both fighters live completely different lives and that will prove pivotal this weekend. “We live completely different lives. I’m the hungrier fighter. This is a big opportunity for me and I’m going to take it”.
