Boxing: Groves Brushes off Booth Loss

George Groves insists the loss of trainer, Adam Booth, has not damaged his chances of taking the IBF and WBA super middleweight belts from Carl Froch next month, despite what some betting experts have implied in recent days

Booth was an ever-present in the corner of the London-born boxer as he won his first 19 professional fights dating back to 2008. 

Groves will put his unbeaten record on the line in Manchester on November 23 without Booth, who informed the fighter they were no longer working together in September.

Groves insisted the split has not affected his preparation, saying it was "a long time coming". He turned to Paddy Fitzpatrick, who he had worked with before, and is confident of walking away from the Phones 4U Arena with the world titles.

"I've seen plenty of Carl Froch. I know I've got everything I need to beat him, it's just about showing up on the night and doing it," the 25-year-old told Sky Sports.

"Sometimes that's easier said than done, so having a good team to prepare you correctly is spot on. But as I say, ultimately, it's down to me, I know what I've got to do and I can't wait to get out there and do it."

People who bet on boxing know that his opponent is just as confident. Froch has won 31 of his 33 bouts. He has no doubt he will make Groves his 32nd victim. 

"I'm the one with nothing to prove. I've done it all. I'm world champion and have beaten the best of the best. I've been in with the elite fighters. My fighting speaks for itself," the 36-year-old said earlier this week.

"George Groves has talked a lot. He's talked me down and given me a load of rubbish. He needs to now back it up. I'm going to take great pleasure in beating him."
