JAMIE Cox has warned WBA Super World Super Middleweight champion George Groves that he has made a mistake by choosing the Swindon fighter as his opponent in the quarter final of the World Boxing Super Series in October.

Tickets for the much-anticipated Muhammad Ali Trophy clash at Wembley's SSE Arena have gone on sale with the protagonists continuing to throw verbal blows in each other's direction.

Groves, 29, lit the fuse by claiming he had picked the 'easy guy' in Cox, after the draft was made in Monaco in July.

But unbeaten 30-year-old Cox reckons that move was a mistake as he targets his most prized scalp to date after an unblemished 24-fight pro career.

“Not only did he chose the most dangerous opponent for him in terms of styles, but also the fighter most likely to end his career,” said Cox.

’’The question is, where does he go after I beat him?”

Groves is perhaps best known for two epic defeats to countryman Carl Froch and finally lifted a world title in May when he beat Fedor Chudinov in Sheffield.

But Cox added: “I am looking forward to showing people what I am about and showcasing myself and the dedication I have to the game.

“Me and Groves live completely different lives. Groves is a celebrity - he has earned a fortune, achieved his goal at the fourth time of asking and his body shows that he has been over-indulging on the luxuries.

"I am an athlete; I live modestly and am hungry for success. I look sharp because of the lifestyle I live.”

Groves countered: “I feel that Cox, like most people who fight me, is trying to look for comfort by looking for weaknesses in me. They are forever focusing on me.

"By the sounds of it, Cox is hoping that I’ve been over indulging and that I’m not taking a world title fight seriously, but I am afraid for his sake that I am.”

Tickets are on sale priced £35 to £130 and available at stubhub.co.uk and axs.com.
