Badou Jack vs George Groves Officially Sept 12th

Super middleweight Badou Jack was suppose to make his first defense of his world title against mandatory challenger George Groves on Aug. 22 in Las Vegas. Then George Groves suffered a minor head injury while training, however the fight was still a go. Word came a few weeks ago that the fight was going to be moved to September 12th @ MGM Grand, the same date and place as the RUMORED Mayweather vs Berto event.

Today on Twitter WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman announced "It's official ! @BadouJack vs @StGeorgeGroves is on for September 12 @WBCBoxing super middleweight championship"

There is still no official announcement from camp Mayweather for September 12th. So we assume that Badou Jack vs George Groves will be the co-feature.
