Sauerland Promotion have confirmed that George Groves (25-3, 18 KOs) and Fedor Chudinov (14-1, 10 early) will vie for the vacant WBA’s “Super” Super middleweight title following Felix Sturm’s decision to vacate the belt—date and venue TBA. Sturm beat the Russian in February, but cited an elbow injury when vacating and also has the lingering issue of a failed drugs test hanging over him.

Groves holds the WBA’s International title, which he won by stopping David Brophy in April then defended via a decision win over domestic rival Martin Murray in June. The 28-year-old Tweeted the news this morning and it was confirmed by the Sauerland’s Twitter handle as well.
