Anderson ready for an early night against Groves
1:49pm Friday 27th January 2012 in Sport
GISBURN-based Scot Kenny Anderson and George Groves are both predicting an early night when they clash at the Wembley Arena.
British Super-Middleweight champion Groves makes the second defence of his title against the tough Edinburgh man in a return of their thriller in November 2010 when they meet in March.
They clashed at the weigh-in and in an explosive fight Groves hit the floor before he came back to stop Anderson, who is trained at Stirk House by Kevin Maree in the sixth round.
The rivals both agree it won't go the distance and Anderson said, "It really hurt when he beat me, but I've got myself into the mandatory position and got the fight with Groves again,"
"I can't see this fight going all the way, with the way me and Groves fight it's going to be an early for one of us, but I'm going to make sure it's not me,"
"It will be a hard fight, but I know what I did wrong last time and I've rectified the mistakes, this time I'll be coming away the winner."
Groves remains confident though and said: "Anderson is a tough fighter, but I've come on since we last fought and I can't see him going as far as the sixth round this time, he'll go earlier,"
"I'm expecting a tough fight, I'm not underestimating him and he's going to want to prove that the last time was a mistake,"
