Groves’ cut causes venue change

Promoter Frank Warren’s September 14th event, originally due to take place at Wembley Arena, has switched venues and will now take place at York Hall following the withdrawal of super middleweight George Groves, who suffered a deep cut over his right eye last Saturday on the Guerrero-Aydin undercard. Groves was slated to defend his British and Commonwealth belts against Kenny Anderson.

Former Olympian Billy Joe Saunders will now top the bill with a mandatory defense of his Commonwealth Middleweight Championship against unbeaten Australian Jarrod Fletcher. The rest of the card remains unchanged. All tickets that have been already purchased for Wembley Arena can be exchanged by Frank Warren Promotions for the new venue.
