The WBA world super middleweight champion faces his English rival in the World Boxing Super Series final in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
The date of the eight-man elimination tournament final was delayed from June to give Groves time to recover from surgery after dislocating his shoulder in the last round of a convincing win over Chris Eubank Jr in February.
Pound-for-pound rankings: Usyk enters the top 10 A dominating run at the World Boxing Super Series cruiserweight tournament pushed Oleksandr Usyk into the ESPN pound-for-pound rankings, and Mikey Garcia leapfrogged Errol Spence Jr. after another impressive win.
Holding a much-anticipated world title fight between two popular English boxers in Saudi Arabia has raised eyebrows and has been met by criticism.
Due to the heat, Groves hopes the fight takes place indoors and admits he knows little about the venue, the King Abdullah Sports City.
