IBF super-middleweight James DeGale hopes to fight George Groves at Wembley Stadium later this year – provided his old rival wins the WBA title later this month.

Groves will have his fourth attempt at world honours on May 27 when he fights Fedor Chudinov for the vacant title at Bramall Lane in Sheffield as chief-support to Kell Brook’s IBF welterweight title defence against Errol Spence.

DeGale is hoping Groves, who outpointed him in their 2011 grudge match, defeats Chudinov so they can renew their rivalry.
