George Groves mulling over promotional offers, set to choose from two

Phil Jay 12/05/2014

Super-middleweight world title challenger George Groves is set to sign with a promotional outfit imminently after the Londoner revealed that he has whittled his current offers down to just two.

The 26 year-old, who faces rival Carl Froch on May 31 at Wembley Stadium in a much-anticipated rematch, has been representing himself of late, but is now set to make a decision on who will take the reigns for the future.

“As everyone knows I’m promotionally free, but maybe not for much longer,” said Groves. “Down to the last two now,” he added.

Highly-rated Groves was formally represented by mentor David Haye’s Hayemaker company until breaking out on his own, and has recent ties with Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing from his first fight with IBF and WBA champion Froch last November.

Hearn would be the obvious favourite to land Groves’ services, although the ‘Saint’ could have offers from all over, with his name being particularly on the rise Stateside. Compatriots David Price and Martin Murray have decided to sign with overseas representatives of late in Sauerland of Germany and South Africa’s Golden Gloves, with Groves set to reveal all once a final choice is made.
