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.

Groves' last fight in Germany dates back to November 2009 when he outpointed Kanstantsin Makhankou in Nuremberg. Tickets for th...

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Arthur Abraham, Kermit Cintron And Adonis Stevenson

Well that’s just cruel -- kind of like coming off the Timothy Bradley/Ruslan Provodnikov high into a week without much on. Mind you, if old Ruslan taught us anything, it’s that we shouldn’t underestimate the potential of fights before they happen. That’s easier said than done and rather invalidates the whole point of the schedule, though. So I, for one, will continue...
