Groves to fight for the Commonwealth title!!

23 02 2010

George Groves will be fighting Charles Adamu for the Commonwealth super-middleweight title on April 3rd at the M.E.N. Arena in Manchester!!

Fighting on the same bill as David Haye’s WBA heavyweight title defence against John Ruiz, 32-year-old Adamu represents a big step up for young Hammersmith hopeful Groves. The ‘Saint’ will be competing in just his ninth pro bout and will be challenging reigning champion Adamu from Ghana over twelve rounds, having previously never gone past eight.

Adamu has never been stopped and has fought the likes of Otis Grant, Vitali Tsypko and current WBC champion Carl Froch and defeated Carl Dilks back in December to take the vacant crown.

There had been reports of a fight with Dilks, but Groves will instead be challenging for his first professional title against the experienced Adamu. A delighted Groves said “This is fantastic for me. The stuff I dream about.”

“I’m so excited about this opportunity. I plan to take it with both hands.

“I’m going to smash Adamu all round the ring. I plan to stop him and do something that’s never been done before.”

“He’s a good experienced fighter, he’s been in with some good guys, he’s been 12 rounds with Carl Froch and other fighters that have gone on to compete at world level but I really think that this is the right move for me and obviously I want to be a champion.”
