Glen Johnson: I’m coming to kick Groves’ butt

Former IBF light heavyweight champion Glen Johnson has promised to give George Groves a butt kicking when they meet at the ExCeL London on December 15th. “The Road Warrior” challenges Groves for his Commonwealth super middleweight title on promoter Frank Warren’s big end of year extravaganza that is headlined by WBO lightweight champion Ricky Burns vs. TBA. “From what I’ve seen of Groves he’s a good strong kid with lots of talent and he’s coming up in the sport and I know he’ll be looking to do a number on me,” said Johnson. “I’ve faced the best in the business over the years against the like of Jones, Tarver, Hopkins and I believe that I’m a better all round fighter. Groves will not show me anything that I haven’t seen before.”

“He’s got the youth, but I’ve got the experience and that will count for plenty. He’s only had 15 fights. It shows he’s got plenty of ambition and hunger to want to face me and that’s admirable for a young fighter, but he’ll see that he’s bitten off more than he can chew.”

“I love coming to England and I’m looking forward to returning to London where I beat Toks Owoh back in 2000. I’ve boxed all over the world and the fans in England are something special. They love their boxing and really get behind their man and I know that they will be chanting Groves’ name going in, but they’ll be chanting me on the way out. I know what I’ve got to do and I’m coming to England to kick Groves’ butt.”
