Return of the Saint: Groves vs. Rebrasse

Return of the Saint: Groves vs. Rebrasse

20th September 2014

Location: The SSE Arena, Wembley

 

‘’Saint’’ George Groves (19-2, 15 KOs) returns on 20th September in a final eliminator for the WBC World Super Middleweight title against European Champion Christopher Rebrasse (22-2-3, 5 KOs). Rebrasse’s European title and the vacant WBC Silver Super Middleweight title will also be on the line when the pair meet at the SSE Arena in Wembley.

‘’It is great to be back here in Wembley and back to world-class boxing,’’ said Groves at today’s press conference. ‘’Last time I was here it didn’t go the way I had hoped but I showed that I belong at the top level. In boxing sometimes all it takes is one punch, and it took just one punch to derail my world title ambitions in May. But we are back on the road and the journey will continue on 20th September at the SSE Arena in Wembley.

‘’This is a perfect fight for me. Rebrasse is a good opponent with a good record. Win this fight and I am back in the picture that is vitally important. I can’t wait to be world champion and it will happen in the near future. It is good to be back in boxing and back in at the deep end.”

Groves’ opponent Rebrasse, the reigning European Champion, appeared in a confident mood at today's press conference, unfazed at the prospect of facing ‘’The Saint’’ on his home soil.

‘’A ring is a ring whether you are in England or France,’’ said Rebrasse. ‘’It may be a risk coming to England but it is a risk I am willing to take. I am looking forward to this fight. We will see what happens on 20th September.’’

Promoter Kalle Sauerland said ‘’We are delighted to be staging our first UK show here at The SSE Arena in Wembley and even more delighted to be working with George. He has proven himself as one of the most exciting Super Middleweights on the planet. He is someone we know can go right the way to the top. We look forward to fireworks on September 20th.’’
