GEORGE GROVES and Eduard Gutknecht successfully made weight yesterday for their super-middleweight clash at Wembley Arena later tonight.

The pair will meet with a lofty WBA world ranking at stake – and a potential shot at the vacant world title.

Groves tipped the scales at 11st 13lb 7oz while Gutknecht was bang on the 12st limit at yesterday’s weigh-in. Groves is pursuing a fourth shot at a world title having twice been beaten by Carl  Froch and losing to WBC champion Badou Jack last year.
