George Groves aiming to stop Badou Jack

British super-middleweight George Groves says that he will be looking to stop WBC champion Badou Jack when they clash in Las Vegas on September 12.

British super-middleweight George Groves has claimed that he is better than WBC champion Badou Jack "in all departments".

On September 12, Groves will make his third attempt to win global honours against Jack, who won the belt in April, and the Londoner is confident of joining James DeGale as a world champion at 168lbs.

The 27-year-old told Sky Sports News: "I saw him win the title in Chicago in April and he's a good fighter – anyone in this level is a good fighter. Floyd Mayweather's team are winners but he's not going to be a winner on fight night.

"As good as he is, we know we've got a plan to beat him. He does everything well but nothing exceptional and I feel I'm better than him in all departments. Hopefully I'll win over a few American fans in the process.

"We've both been knocked out before and people will be looking at that. He got blitzed in one round and maybe he got caught cold. Defensively he's very good and he punches very well but there are gaps. I've boxed on so many away cards and I never plan on letting the opponent hear the final bell; the same goes for Jack."

Since losing to Carl Froch at Wembley Stadium, Groves has recorded victories over Christopher Rebrasse and Denis Douglin.

Sunday's key events

· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
