George Groves: 'I don't feel pressure ahead of World Championship fight'

George Groves says that he does not feel any pressure ahead of his WBC super-middleweight championship bout against Badou Jack.

George Groves has said that he does not feel any pressure ahead of his WBC super-middleweight championship fight against Badou Jack.

The Londoner has twice lost to Carl Froch in a bid to win the world title but will finally be crowned champion if he beats Jack in Las Vegas.

"Every fight is more vital than the last, more important than the last and there's more to lose, especially once you've lost," Groves told reporters. "I came back after losing last year and won the European title and I became the WBC's mandatory challenger.

"Since then we've been rolling and waiting for our opportunity to fight for the WBC belt. We knew it would come so we've been patient with it.

"So all the pressures and all the excitement and everything else that goes with fighting for the world championship, I don't feel any of it because to me, it's just a fight."

The fight is due to start from 1am (BST) on Sunday.
