Trainer Adam Booth has dismissed talk of George Groves facing Carl Froch as he admits his fighter is far too easy to hit.
Groves has enjoyed a successful year as he won his grudge match with James DeGale in May, and then enhanced his reputation with a crushing knockout of Paul Smith in November.
The 23-year-old super-middleweight admits he would relish the chance to face Froch, who lost his WBC title in last weekend's defeat by Andre Ward in the Super Six final.
But Booth told West London Sport: "It frightens me how little he knows and how much he's got to do.
"I've got no problem stating what his weaknesses are at the moment. I'm telling everyone that if you fight George, look for him with the right hand because you find him.
"I guarantee that if you do find him you won't hurt him, but it might help me do my job because I'm telling him things and working in training and then he gets caught by Paul Smith with the right hand in the first round.
"I've no doubt he'll get there, but go into a fight against someone like Ward or Froch at this stage? No.
"George is still young - he's only had 14 fights. But I guarantee you this: when he gets there, they'll be the ones who have things to worry about."
