If it is a Groves fight they are trying to set up then it is a big mistake.

for Groves?

Dunno really, Dirrell doesn't seem to have the head for the game, he's fought 2 rounds in the last 3 years

seems dangerous, seems talented, also seems like the next Zab Judah

Groves can move his feet, and doesn't have slow hands, plus he has some pop. No he's not on the level of Carl Froch but he is vastly different style, where Froch is probably the best style matchup imaginable for Dirrell, Groves presents something more difficult than a stationary target who needs you to exchange

But then Dirrell is "slick and black" as well as american so of course Dirrell KO1

Still, If he gets past Johnson easily enough i'd like to see this

He has the talent though, and even if he isn't fully in the game he still have enough about him to deal with Groves' level

Bit strange that one, remember he was sparring both Dirrel brothers before the Degale fight and them saying how green he was. He's got skills he should be mixing it at the top, but his heart really isn't in it

Amended my original post.

What "level" is Groves, we don't really know yet, all we do know is Dirrell is American, and Groves, being British is probably not on the same level as the American

He also says it's a Showtime card .

Can't see his opponent been anyone decent, he'll just be looking to get some rounds in.
