SWINDON-trained boxer George Groves is to return to the ring in a WBC title eliminator against Christopher Rebrasse.

The bout represents a comeback for Paddy Fitzpatrick's charge following his British superfight defeat to Carl Froch last month.

It also doubles as a fight for the 28-year-old Frenchman's European title, a strap Groves' British super-middleweight rival James DeGale has previously held.

For the September 20 contest Groves will return to the scene of his professional debut at Wembley Arena.
