Frank Warren Promotions won purse bids in Rome for the vacant EBU supermiddle between George Groves, 16-0, and Mouhamed Ali Ndiaye, 22-1, with an offer for 111 150 Euro. Italian OPI 2000 bid 87 717 Euro.
Frank Warren Promotions will announce date and site at a press conference on Monday but Groves will of course get home advantage against a dangerous opponent whose sole loss - against Dane Lolenga Mock in a EU title fight - was very disputed and the EBU in fact ordered a rematch that however never took place.
The title was left vacant by James DeGale.
