Badou Jack vs George Groves Showtime Aug 22nd

Super middleweight Badou Jack will make the first defense of his world title against mandatory challenger George Groves on Aug. 22 in Las Vegas, on Showtime.

Jack (19-1-1, 12 KOs) is coming off a upset when he won a majority decision and the belt from Anthony Dirrell on April 24 in Chicago. The win was Jack's third in a row since suffering a first-round knockout loss in a major upset to Derek Edwards in February 2014.

Groves (21-2, 16 KOs), will be getting his third shot at a 168-pound world title. He fought for the title twice against Carl Froch in which he lost both times. He is coming off two consecutive wins against Denis Douglin & Christopher Rebrasse.

The event will likely take place at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas
