George Groves: will be back live on Sky Sports on September 20

Sky Bet

George Groves' return to the ring will be live on Sky Sports.

The former world-title challenger will fight for the European super-middleweight strap against Christopher Rebrasse, on Saturday September 20 on Fight Night Live.

It will not only see him get back in the ring for the first time since being knocked out by Carl Froch in May, it will also see him at Wembley again - although this will take place at the Arena not the Stadium.

Groves’ promoters Sauerland will be working in association with Matchroom, who will add their well-known fighters to the card with lightweight prospect Martin J Ward already revealing he is on the bill.

The Saint will be the centre of attention though, following the back-to-back defeats against Froch, who retained his IBF and WBA titles with two memorable stoppages.

The challenger has now switched down the WBC route and the European title fight with French holder Rebrasse is also being lined up as a world title eliminator.

Anthony Dirrell won the title by beating Sakio Bika on points two weeks ago.
