Andrea Di Luisa out to shock George Groves
Andrea Di Luisa says he’ll prove that George Groves is past his best when the super middleweights clash in a 12-round non-title bout in London, England, on Saturday.
The Italian is Groves’ first opponent since Badou Jack edged him out on a split decision in their WBC championship clash in September and the Londoner is now seeking to rebuild and land a fourth title shot.
However, Di Luisa believes that the Jack fight along with Groves’ two titanic tussles with Carl Froch have taken their toll and aims to stop the 27 year old’s latest charge at the first hurdle.
“I don’t believe George is the same fighter he was before those fights against Froch and Jack,” said Di Luisa. “Only George knows how he feels. I can only comment from my point of view. On January 30 we will see how it goes – I do have a good punch.
“George is a good boxer, a good fighter. He’s had a few chances to be a world champion but hasn’t succeeded. He’s a good fighter and a hard puncher but I’m ready for anything. I’m going to London to win.”
