DeGale vs Groves announced for May 21st

Today it was announced that the eagerly anticipated British showdown between British Super-Middleweight champion James DeGale (10(8)-0-0) vs Georges Groves (12(10)-0-0) will take place at the 02 Arena, in London, on May 21st 2011. It will provide chief support to the WBO light-heavyweight showdown between Welsh challenger, Nathan Cleverly (21(10)-0-0) and Jurgen Braehmer (36(29)-2-0) and the event will be shown, live, on Sky PPV.

David Coldwell initially won the purse bid for the bout, back in February, with a £400,000 bid and the bout was originally pencilled in for April 9th but, following discussions between the two parties, it had been agreed to move it to May 21st.  That date had originally been set aside for David Haye’s mandatory defence of his WBA heavyweight title before it was announced that he would fight a Klitschko in June/July. DeGale vs Groves promises to be one of the most explosive fights in Britain this year and, as they like to say in America, someone’s ‘0’ has to go.
