George Groves outpointed France's Christopher Rebrasse at Wembley Arena to win the European super-middleweight title.

Groves, 26, controlled the fight and won a unanimous decision to earn a shot at WBC champion Anthony Dirrell.

Rebrasse landed some powerful punches of his own, but Groves's strong start and superior work-rate earned him a convincing victory.

Two judges scored the fight 118-110, with another making it 117-111.

"It feels great," said Groves, who improved his record to 20 wins from 22 fights. "That was a tough fight and the crowd helped me come through.

"Rebrasse was a good opponent, a tough guy - he took an awful lot of punches.

"It's onwards and upwards. I want to take over the world."

After the fight, Groves called out ringside television pundit Carl Froch, who won their two high-profile and acrimonious world title bouts.

"I'd love another shot," Groves told Froch, who dismissed any prospect of a rematch.
