SUPER-MIDDLEWEIGHT Jamie Cox has vowed to learn from the experience of losing to WBA world champion George Groves as he looks ahead to the John Ryder clash. The former Commonwealth light-middleweight champion meets Ryder on the undercard of David Haye and Tony Bellew’s rematch this Saturday at the O2 arena.

Cox failed in his attempt to dethrone Groves in the quarter-final of World Boxing Super Series in October last year, falling victim to a fourth-round stoppage.

The 31-year-old Cox has vowed to learn from the experience and admitted sealing a return win against Harry Matthews in March was important after his first loss.
