JAMIE Cox will begin his rocky path to the summit on Monday, with trainer John Costello confident that his man can conquer his Everest.

The unbeaten Swindon fighter will tackle George Groves on Saturday, October 14 at Wembley Arena in the opening round of the eight-man World Boxing Super Series tournament.

But while victory over the Londoner would move the 30-year-old southpaw closer to the Muhammad Ali Trophy, it would also see Cox crown champion of the world with Groves’ WBA Super title on the line.

The former Walcot and England ace, who signed with Matchroom in April to kick-start his stagnating career, has found himself catapulted to the spotlight he has dreamed about since turning professional 10 years ago.

And with the chance to become a world champion close, Costello is confident that the 2006 Commonwealth Games gold medallist can take Groves’ belt.

“Jamie is very, very capable of winning that belt,” the trainer told the Advertiser. “I very confident he will be bringing that belt back to Swindon.”

As Cox prepares to tuck himself away for an 11-week camp, his Birmingham-based trainer believes he is in the best place mentally he has ever been.

“I’ve never seen him so happy,” Costello said. “Jamie trains hard all the time, but when he is happy, he works even harder. We start camp on Monday and we are going to mix it up a little for him.

“We need sparring partners who will be like George – jittery and nervous. We need to get Jamie sparring against what he is likely to face on the night.

“We are going to leave no stone unturned to make sure Jamie is 100 per cent for winning that world title.”
