But an unnamed source had reported to a tabloid newspaper that ‘George and Sophie [his fiancee] were told by CID officers a threat had been made on his life and they should consider their safety.
‘The intelligence said if he wasn’t shot before the fight, it would happen in the ring!
Anderson meanwhile who stopped Robin Reid at the weekend in a fight for the vacant crown, hit back at accusations that his friends and family were to blame for Groves death threats
“I have no idea what Groves problem is, I’ve not said a word about him since he was stripped of the British title which obviously put stop to any chance of us fighting in the near future.
“The accusations he’s throwing about have nothing to do with me, I can’t control what other people say or do but you’ll not find a single thing I’ve said out of order.
“Everybody that’s in the public eye gets abuse on twitter, I’ve had plenty, if you can’t deal with it, don’t come on twitter or simply block whoever is giving you it.”
“Putting a British belt in the bin is disgusting childish and petty, then coming back with a sob story when you get abuse for doing it is classless #growup.”
