David Haye Comes Out in Defense of Groves' Chin

By Luke Furman

Former two-division world champion David Haye has rejected any notion that super middleweight contender George Groves has a weak chin. Last Saturday night, before 80,000 fans at Wembley Stadium, Groves was knocked senseless in the eight round from a huge right hand from Carl Froch. The fight was waved off a moment later.

Groves was a former stablemate of Haye and the two fighters often trained together under the direction of trainer Adam Booth.

"He does not have a weak chin. He just got hit with a perfect shot, plain and simple. And with every single champion throughout the years - if you get hit perfectly you go down, and that's what makes boxing. Carl couldn't have thrown it any more perfect. It was the perfect punch," Haye said.

Groves chin is mediocre. Groves got knocked out by the very first and only punch from Froch that landed clean on his chin. He can still become world champion. He should take note of my boy Amir.

Maybe he should avoid getting hit so much.

honestly i think ggg froch would be a good fight. Everyone thinks ggg would win easy but honestly froch is the bigger guy so its not like ggg can walk him down all night. One thing is for sure though id be surprised if they fight if it would go the distance it would be dam entertaining.

Even when Groves was winning I thought he looked a little shaky and uncomfortable even when he wasn't getting hit much and Froch looked stronger/tougher/more confident almost all fight, he just wasn't getting off early. Groves' chin might not be glass, but he looked shaky all fight and Froch brok...

Groves isn't chinny, but Froch is a hell of a puncher. He literally slammed Groves to the canvas and made him appear like a gooey insect for a few seconds.
