The winner will take on Eubank in the semi-final of the World Boxing Super Series.

But Cox said: “I’m not the underdog, I am the undertaker.

“Groves has made a big mistake in looking past me.

“Eubank is already talking about fighting Groves next, but what he fails to understand is I will be the one progressing, not George.

“I can wreck the plans of both Eubank and Groves.

“I’ve waited too long for a chance and am not about to blow it now.”

Cox, a former room-mate of Groves from the GB amateur squad, has an unbeaten record and 13 knockouts from 24 fights.

He spent two years stacking shelves in a supermarket after being told he would never box again because of a left hand injury.

He was also jailed for a month after being wrongly convicted of assaulting a former girlfriend last year, the decision being overturned on appeal.

He added: “After going through the mill, George is just another fight for me to win.”

Groves makes the first defence of the title he claimed with a sixth-round stoppage of Fedor Chudinov in Sheffield in May.

He said: “I’m going to land clean shots and don’t think he will be able to negotiate his way through difficult situations.

“Once I set a few traps and he falls for them, I’m going to land the big shots and he’s going to go.”

FLOYD MAYWEATHER looks dapper in some snazzy black and gold slippers… as Hollywood legend Jack Nicholson also hangs out at an LA Lakers game.

The boxing icon looked to be enjoying his retirement as he scoffed popcorn in the ultra-exclusive courtside seats.

And he even brought the whole family along for pictures with sons Koraun and Zion and daughter Iyanna.

But it was Nicholson who caught the eye despite Mayweather’s enormous jacket and sparkling jacket.

The star of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and the Shining appeared to forget to do up one of the buttons on his blue shirt.

The unfortunate moment was caught on camera as he sat next to 25-year-old son Ray.

Mayweather recently hinted at a return to the boxing ring by posting a video of himself hitting a punching bag.

The 50-0 fighter has been out of action since defeating Conor McGregor in ten rounds in Las Vegas back in August.

Mayweather clearly still likes to keep himself in shape.

Then again, so relaxed was he ahead of his billion-dollar bout against McGregor that he was seen munching a burger.
