George Groves will fight on Team Sauerland´s big show in Magdeburg, Germany on Saturday. The unbeaten 24-year-old (17-0, 13 KOs) will take on Baker Barakat (37-13-4, 25 KOs) in an eight-rounder. “We are delighted to have added another highly-talented super-middleweight to the card,” promoter Kalle Sauerland said. “He will impress the crowd with his exciting style, which has given him many KO wins.”
In the main event of the evening, WBO Super-Middleweight Champion Arthur Abraham faces Robert Stieglitz. Coached by Adam Booth, Groves is ranked second by the IBF and WBO, making it a possibility that he might face either Abraham or Stieglitz in the future.
Groves´ last fight in Germany dates back to November 2009 when he outpointed Kanstantsin Makhankou in Nuremberg.
