George Groves vs. Jamie Cox WBSS super middleweight quarterfinals

PhilBoxing.com





AIRING LIVE IN CANADA THIS AFTERNOON EXCLUSIVELY ON SUPER CHANNEL


EDMONTON, Canada (October 14, 2017) - The third of four quarterfinals bouts in the super middleweight division of the popular World Boxing Super Series (WBSS) tournament action will be held today when World Boxing Association (WBA) Super World Super Middleweight Champion "Saint" George Groves (26-3, 19 KOs) defends his title against undefeated challenger Jamie Cox (24-0, 13 KOs), airing in Canada exclusively on Super Channel, live from Wembley Arena in London, United Kingdom.

The "Groves vs. Cox" card, starting at 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT,gives Canadian boxing fans the opportunity to continue watching all $50-million WBSS tournament action live, exclusively on Canada's boxing destination network, Super Channel, which acquired the rights in Canada to broadcast the World Boxing Super Series from MP & Silva, a leading international media company that provides media rights, digital, technology and sponsorship services.

"I feel I'm in the form of my career," Groves said. "This tournament has come along for me at the perfect time. I've had a fantastic camp. Everything that we wanted to happen did happen. It's gone perfectly. I know what Jamie Cox can bring. I know that we maybe haven't seen the best of Jamie yet because he's fought nowhere near the level that I have.

"He hasn't fought any big names, he hasn't been in world title fights and he'll have to take a giant leap on Saturday night. Both he and his trainer will wonder whether he can take that leap. When he's boxed at a lower level he's dropped to that level and maybe he's that sort of fighter. Maybe he can rise to the occasion but maybe not.

"He's been gifted with a world title shot. He hasn't fought anyone decent to get this. I've picked him, it's fantastic for him. We're hoping that the best of Jamie Cox will show up. I look forward to going out and performing and performing well. And to show everyone in the division that I'm still the man to beat."

"I'm going to win," Cox countered. "It's as simple as that. No question about it. I've come into this to win the tournament. George is the first stop. I'm ready. I don't know why he chose me. Everyone in the tournament is good, but I'm going to make my mark."

The Groves-Cox winner will advance to the WBSS semifinals to face another Brit, IBO champion Chris "Next Gen" Eubank Jr., who knocked out previously undefeated Avni Yildirim in the third round of last Saturday's quarterfinals fight in Germany.

Seven thrilling matches on the "Groves vs, Cox" card, promoted by Sauerland Event, will air in Canada exclusively on Super Channel. The Groves vs. Cox 12-round main event is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. ET / 3 p.m. PT.
