Steve O’Meara: The Dark Horse

When Steve O’Meara climbs into the ring at the Troxy in London’s East End on Thursday night not only will he be tussling with ring veteran Bradley Pryce but he’ll also be jostling for space in the crowded market of public attention.

DeGale vs Groves weigh-in pictures

Only an ounce of flesh could separate James DeGale and George Groves on the scales yesterday afternoon as they both comfortably made weight for their grudge match later tonight.

Groves stepped on first and scaled 11st 13lbs 7oz, with DeGale surprisingly just an ounce lighter at 11st 13lbs 6oz, after having weighed 8lbs over the limit at a weight check earlier in the week.

DeGale says he's more than ready for Groves

James DeGale says he can't wait for Saturday night - and the chance to silence George Groves and his handlers.

Meanwhile DeGale's trainer Jim McDonnell has upped the pressure on Groves by claiming the Londoner was decked in sparring last week.

DeGale, who was out-pointed by Groves in their amateur days, has been chopping trees in Essex as he starts his hardest training camp to date for the mandatory defence.
