Confident Groves predicts early stoppage

George Groves has predicted another quick victory at Wembley Arena when he faces Kenny Anderson there on 16 March.

The Hammersmith super-middleweight, 23, blasted away Paul Smith in two rounds at the same venue in November.

And he has pledged to be just as explosive in his rematch with Anderson when he defends his British title against the Scot.

Anderson caused him problems when they met in 2010, flooring the Londoner before Groves recovered to stop his opponent in the sixth round.

But Groves said: “I’ve come on since we last fought and I can’t see him going as far as the sixth round this time. He’ll go earlier.

“I’m expecting a tough fight. I’m not underestimating him and he’s going to want to prove that the last time was a mistake.

“I’ve beaten James DeGale and Paul Smith and now I’ve got to beat Anderson before I move onto the next level.”
