In a recent interview with fighthype.com, Badou Jack stated “I think it’s going to be in September on Floyd’s undercard against George Groves. I think I’m an overall better fighter than he [Groves] is. I believe in myself and in my skill set. I believe I’m going to beat him.”.
The WBC reported that Badou Jack and George Groves have agreed to terms and will fight in the Fall.
Jack (19-1-1, 12 KOs) recently won the WBC super middleweight title when he defeated Anthony Dirrell via majority decision in April. George Groves (21-2, 16 KOs) is currently riding a two fight win streak since getting knocked out by Carl Froch last year.
