GEORGE GROVES has confirmed a fourth attempt at a world title as the WBA have ordered him to fight Fedor Chudinov for their vacant super-middleweight title.

Felix Sturm previously held the title, having controversially beaten Chudinov for it, however the German vacated the belt earlier this year due to injury.

Groves had earned himself a top ranking with the WBA in June by outpointing Martin Murray in an eliminator, and solidifed that position by defeating Eduard Gutknecht last month. Sadly, Gutknecht still remains in hospital after collapsing following the loss.
