George Groves has split with trainer Adam Booth just two months ahead of his world title fight with Carl Froch.

Groves will be without Booth for the first time in his professional career when he challenges Froch for his WBA and IBF super-middleweight titles on November 23.

Rumours had been circulating that Groves had parted company with Booth at Tuesday's press conference for the fight with Froch, with the trainer confirming them on Wednesday.

Booth has been in Groves' corner for the fighter's victories over James DeGale, Paul Smith and Glen Johnson.
