George Groves grabbed super middleweight gold last Saturday night when he stopped Fedor Chudinov in the sixth round. Shortly after the fight the Londoner informed the media about his future plans and possibly fighting a former opponent.
“I would like that [a fight against DeGale], We will have to wait and see. Everyone would like to see it again. I don’t know what his situation with the IBF is. It’s a great fight though. It’s a fight I’ve always enjoyed, the build-up and beating him,” said Groves at a press conference after his against the Russian.
A rematch between James DeGale and Groves could be big if done at the right time. Their previous meeting ended in a majority decision favouring Groves.
DeGale is the current IBF super middleweight champion and WBC world super middleweight champion. A clash of the super middleweights between Groves and DeGale would definitely attract U.K boxing fans, but it’s still not certain what Groves will eventully do.
“There are going to be a lot of opportunities for me now. I’m not in a massive rush. There are some interesting things going on behind the scenes and big fights against some British guys,” told Groves.
