James DeGale has warned George Groves that he'll need more than David Haye in his corner to beat him on Saturday. The rivals meet for the British and Commonwealth super-middleweight titles at the 02 Arena, London, live on Sky Box Office.
Groves has boasted the fact that Haye will be giving him advice during the fight..
But the presence of the WBA World Heavyweight champion doesn't bother Olympic gold medallist DeGale.
"It will make victory all the sweeter because I don't like Haye much either," said Chunky.
"At least Haye's got a world title. Groves has got nothing but an ugly face. He's just a wannabe who lives off Haye's name.
"Groves will need a lot more than Haye and Adam Booth.
"There's no way he can win this fight.
"I read on Sunday that Haye compared me to Audley Harrison.
"Well we both won Olympic gold, but that's where the similarities end.
"Harrison was a phoney but I'm the real deal, and Haye and his puppet Groves are going to find that out on Saturday night.
"Haye's been pulling his strings for months, but at the 02 Groves is going to find that ring a very lonely place."
'This Is It' featuring DeGale v Groves and Cleverly v Braehmer is exclusively live on Sky Box Office HD from 8pm on Saturday 21 May. To order the event call: 08442 410 888
