Groves in line to face Murray

Martin Murray could face George Groves if he wins his WBO world super-middleweight title fight against champion Arthur Abraham on November 21.

Murray has revealed his contract to fight Abraham involves a rematch clause that names George Groves as a ready-and-waiting challenger should Abraham opt against a return bout.

Murray has also been named as a potential opponent for Callum Smith, and asked if he was  interested in defending a world title against Smith in the future, he said: "I didn't see post-fight interviews after Callum's win [against Rocky Fielding] and I didn't know I was mentioned, but yeah. Why not?

"Callum's a great fighter with a lot of hype around him at the minute. I've always wanted a big domestic fight. I've always said that. If that's a fight for further down the line then it's obviously it's one I'd take.

"I've got obligations with rematches. It's common sense. There's a rematch clause in there but along with Abraham, it's with another three Sauerland fighters, including George Groves and Vincent Feigenbutz. I'm not sure of the other.

"To be honest, I'm not bothered who they are. They could put Mike Tyson in there for all I care. I'm not bothered. I'm just focusing on this fight and on getting a win.

"The priority is getting the win here, I'm not fussed. Then I'll fight whoever."
