Thursday, May 22, 2014

BERLIN - England's world super-middleweight contender George Groves has signed a long-term deal to be managed by Germany-based promoters Sauerland ahead of his Wembley Stadium rematch with Carl Froch in 9 days.

The 26-year-old has signed for the Sauerland brothers Kalle and Nisse and will fight Froch, 36, for his WBA and IBF titles at Wembley Stadium on May 31 having suffered the first loss of his career to Froch last November.

"I am extremely pleased to have signed with Team Sauerland," London-born Groves said yesterday.

"I have boxed on their shows in the past and have known Kalle and Nisse for years.

"The shows they put on in Europe are phenomenal.

"This is definitely a step in the right direction for me as I look to build my name not only across Europe but all around the world.

"I feel that now I have the right team in place to help me achieve everything I need to in boxing."
