Jack-Groves WBC Clash Set For Mayweather-Berto Card

By Elliot Foster (@FreelanceFoz)

Badou Jack will defend his world title in the autumn.

The WBC super middleweight champion will put his title on the line against his mandatory challenger George Groves on September 12.

Jack, who snatched the title from Anthony Dirrell on points in April, had been set to face the Hammersmith former two-time title challenger later this month, but the clash was postponed two weeks ago and will now take place live on Showtime pay-per-view.

Groves will get his third chance to claim a world title on the undercard of Floyd Mayweather’s fight against Andre Berto at the MGM Grand.

Elsewhere, Roman Martinez will defend his world title on the bill.

‘Rocky’ will put his WBO super featherweight title on the line against Orlando Salido –– the man he dethroned on points in April to claim the crown –– in an immediate rematch.

Ticket information and further undercard fights will be released in due course.
