Noe Gonzalez Alcoba: George Groves is a good fighter and a different level to Rocky Fielding

Fielding’s July 12 opponent insists he will not make the same mistakes again

NOE GONZALEZ ALCOBA (above right) says there will be no repeat of the mistake he made against George Groves when he tackles Rocky Fielding in a super-middleweight 12-rounder at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on July 12.

The Argentina-based Uruguayan travelled to London in May 2013 to face Groves on the undercard of Carl Froch’s clash with Mikkel Kessler at The O2, and walked onto a stiff short right-hand from the Hammersmith star in the fifth round that ended the fight.

Groves went on to face Froch in two memorable encounters in the UK after his win over Gonzalez and the 35-year-old says that this time around he will be the one ready to step into major fights after beating Fielding.
