George Groves
 Rick Reeno of www.boxingscene.com
has revealed that
George Groves has been dropped from the WBO’s mandatory spot
for
Robert Stieglitz’s super middleweight title and replaced by Arthur
Abraham
.  Groves, 14-0 (11), was due to meet
Stieglitz in Germany on May 5 only to withdraw from the clash yesterday morning
citing a nose injury.
Stieglitz, 41-2 (23), will still push ahead with the planned date and is
then likely to face Abraham in a lucrative match within 90-days of the May
outing, leaving Groves with a rematch with Kenny Anderson, tentatively
scheduled for the 30 June, on his plate should he recover from his recent
injury problems.   
The Londoner pulled out of a March meeting with Anderson with a bad back
before recovering just in time to take the Stieglitz job and has been unlucky
with fight dates in recent months, by the time he next fights, Groves will have
had 14-rounds in the past year – a decision win over James DeGale last May and
a second-round TKO of Paul Smith in November.
