James DeGale has revealed the origins of his rivalry with George Groves as the two continue to snipe over who is chief support for next week’s fight between Nathan Cleverly and Tony Bellew.
DeGale faces Mexican Marco Antonio Periban while Groves is preparing for America’s Denis Douglin.

Groves is confident he will be given the more high-profile slot at Liverpool’s Echo Arena – ‘James I’m sure has been told an awful lot of stuff throughout his career, and he’s waiting for someone to start telling him the truth...Sky’s telling me he’s not gonna be (chief support)’ – leaving DeGale to respond that Groves has felt ‘in his shadow’ since they first met...

Even DeGale isn't so brain damanged that he believes this.

When James was on the undercard of Froch vs Groves 2 at Wembley, Groves was a bit jealous?  Course he was. :rolleyes:

Just trying to get a reaction from Groves.

What's even more F'ed up than that....  Groves beat his ass on 2011-05-21 at the O2 Arena (Millenium Dome), Greenwich, London, United Kingdom.  So what pipe is he smoking? And please stop bogarting the bong!

Now, if he means he is fat (hence the CHUNKY nickname).... then maybe he means Groves lives in his shadow that way?  I mean, don't all of us thin people find a fat person to walk down the street with to shade us from the hot sun?

Simple, history recalls over and over that... scissors beats paper and Groves beats DeGale.

It's just that DeGale doesn't like Groves, and is trying to annoy him by talk this shit.

Groves should ignore it. Not worth his attention.

So, when Groves beat his arse that night a few years ago.... was Groves in his shadow that night too?  DeGale, could and should say shit... if he wants a rematch... that part I get... but this living in the shadows B.S. is a non-starter and not based in reality.

Well you changed my opinion.  I can see why DeGale is still egging Groves.
