George Groves ready to step up and fight Froch!

Groves with Commonwealth title.

British and Commonwealth super-middleweight champion has already expressed his interest in a domestic world title clash between himself and new IBF world champion Carl Froch.
'St George' has just about beaten every half decent fighter at domestic level, including James DeGale and Paul Smith Jr, and he now feels that is time for him to step onto the world stage. Earlier in the year, he was set to fight the WBO champion Robert Stieglitz but had to withdraw from the bout due to injury. This is why he feels he deserves another shot at a world title.
"I'd love to fight him [Froch]" Groves told Alan Brazil of talkSPORT. "I'm on the verge of world title level."
"I had a chance to fight for the WBO title but it fell through. I'm trying to squeeze my way into the world title arena and obviously a fight against Carl would be absolutely huge."
The undefeated 24-year old was ringside for Froch's fight against Lucian Bute so he was clearly able to see how easy Froch made his win look against the previously undefeated IBF champ who was attempting to make the 10th defence of his title.
"As a fighter you have to think you can beat anyone. Carl's performance was great but you have to look at every fighter and think you can beat them."
Groves is currently pencilled in for a rematch against Kenny Anderson, who he stopped in just six rounds back in 2010, but he believes that after this fight he will be doing anything he can to get a world title shot.
