Saint signs for World Boxing Super Series!

George ‘The Saint’ Groves will put his WBA Super belt on the line in the World Boxing Super Series in a bid to show he is the "best super-middleweight on the planet".

Groves is the first super-middleweight to sign up for the 12-stone edition of the competition. Seven further super-middleweights are still to join him in pursuit of the the Muhammad Ali trophy, and he said: "I see the World Boxing Super Series as a chance for me to show everyone that I'm the best in the division.

"I believe I am the best super-middleweight on the planet and certainly the man to beat at 168lbs.

"I want to continue to test myself against the best and I am ready and willing to fight anyone. It will be exciting to see who else has the courage to enter such a brutal competition.

"The World Boxing Super Series is exactly what fighters and fans need: a simple and straightforward way to determine the best fighter in the division. I am really keen to be the first super-middleweight to lift the Muhammad Ali Trophy." 

In the inaugural season of the World Boxing Super Series, 16 elite fighters - eight super-middleweights and eight cruiserweights - will battle out a bracket-style elimination tournament. In both divisions, there will be four quarter-finals (September / October 2017), two semi-finals (early 2018) and one final (May 2018), making for a total of 14 high-class fights.

Further details and pairings will be revealed at a Draft Gala in Monaco in July.
