WITH the news George Groves will be in the final of the World Boxing Super Series to face Callum Smith, no one will be happier than the boxers, bar one man, Joe Gallagher.

Gallagher, trainer of Smith and his three brothers Paul, Liam and Stephen, told Boxing News of his joy when hearing Groves will be in the final, after recovering from a shoulder injury sustained in the final round of his semi-final triumph against Chris Eubank Jnr.

“I’m really pleased for Callum Smith, he entered this tournament because the best fighters were in it,” Gallagher said.
