George Groves will face Jamie Cox in an all-British world title battle after the Londoner chose his compatriot in the World Boxing Super Series draw.
The current WBA champion said he beleives Cox would be an easier fight as he’s, ‘in for a long tournament’ which kicks off in September.
Second seed Callum Smith will fight Erik Skoglund for the vacant WBC Diamond super-middleweight belt, whilst the winner of Chris Eubank Jr v Arthur Abraham in London next week will square-off against Avni Yildrim.
In the final bout, where there was no choice, ex-light-heavyweight ruler Juergen Braehmer will face American Robert Brant.

Callum Smith v Erik Skoglund – WBC Diamond title
Chris Eubank/Arthur Abraham v Avni Yildrim – IBO title
