Former super-middleweight world champion, George Groves gave his assessment on the clash.
Speaking on Froch on Fighting he said: “I haven’t seen the last Benn fight, I know he won on points, and I think he weighed in a couple of pounds over the welterweight limit. Davis is a lightweight, so he’s got a couple of divisions to go up.
“Davis is up for it, 100%, and they seem like two characters that don’t want to shy away from a fight. Benn doesn’t want to admit to whatever he has to admit to get a license so will have to carry on fighting in the States and the Eubank fight isn’t gunna happen.
As for a prediction Groves admitted he favoured the American.
He said” “I dunno, I wouldn’t go against Davis. Benn, is the best still yet to come? He’s naturally bigger but doesn’t have a comprehensive boxing background.”
