Super middleweight contender George Groves will be making his return on January 30th in his hometown of London where he'll be taking on Andrea Di Luisa at the Copper Box, according to Team Sauerland. Groves (21-3, 16 KOs) is currently coming off a split decision loss to Badou Jack in September on the Mayweather-Berto undercard, which marked his third failed attempt at winning a super middleweight world title. His other two world title losses have come at the hands of Carl Froch -- the second of which ended in dramatic fashion in front of a lot of people at Wembley Stadium, or so I hear.

Di Luisa (18-3, 14 KOs), of Italy, is coming off a second round TKO over a 10-32-2 opponent less than a week ago, which came on the heels of getting stopped by Lucian Bute back in August. Needless to say, Di Luisa won't exactly be perceived as a huge threat in this upcoming fight.
