We look at five men Groves could step in with next as he seeks another world title shot

WITH a fifth-round stoppage win over Andrea Di Luisa at the weekend, George Groves took the first steps on what he hopes is the path to a fourth world title shot.

It was also his first outing under new trainer Shane McGuigan, and the Londoner looked confident in dispatching his opponent.

Now, attention turns to where Groves will go next. He insists he wants the quickest route to a world title shot as possible and is also keen to keep busy.

Groves is currently ranked third in the world by the WBC, meaning he will likely be aiming at fighters also ranked with that governing body, however there are certainly interesting options elsewhere.
