On Friday night at 10pm, George Groves will defend his WBA International super middleweight title against Germany’s Eduard Gutknecht at Wembley’s SSE Arena, in a bout which will be shown live on Channel 5.

The online bookmakers have this as a bit of a mismatch, with George Groves trading as a general 1/25 favourite; the German is 10/1 tops with William Hill if you fancy the upset. But Groves looks to hold all the aces here and it looks a case of predicting at what point he finds the shots required to end this contest.

The Hammersmith boxer won the vacant WBA super-middleweight belt against David Brophy (Won by 4th round KO) in April before a successful defence against Martin Murray in June, both fights having been held at the O2. Martin Murray is a quality operator, tough as teak, but Groves was able to pick him apart to secure a unanimous decision victory.

Now avid Chelsea fan George Groves will return to the neighbouring venue to the biggest fight of his career at Wembley Stadium against Carl Froch nearly two-and-a-half years ago. In fairness to Groves, he has picked himself up quickly and positively since that devastating KO loss. He’s been very active and has won five of his last six fights.

Seventeen of George Groves’ eighteen career TKO/KO wins were secured in round six or before, which is quite a strong indication that when he is fighting an opponent who isn’t in the same league as him, it tends to not take him into the second half of the fight to nail the timing required to find bout-ending shots.

His opponent Eduard Gutknecht has been successful on the European circuit for some time and is a solid competitor, but he’s not on the same level as Groves and at a recent press conference it was evident that Groves has a clear size and general range advantage here.

If history repeats itself and the above trend continues, George Groves should be able to secure a defence of his title without the fight going into the later rounds.
