George Groves Destroys Paul Smith in Two Rounds

Wembley Arena, London - Rising star George Groves (14-0, 11KOs) stopped Paul Smith (31-3, 17KOs) in two rounds to retain the British and Commonwealth super middleweight titles. After controlling nearly the entire first round, Smith caught Groves with a hard right hand in the final ten seconds to shake him up. In the second round, Groves fired a few punches, with a very accurate right hand that caught Smith sleeping and put him down hard on all fours. Smith got up, appeared very hurt, and got dropped very quickly for the second time in the contest - as the referee waved it off.

Groves' jab looked excellent. If it weren't for the knockout, I think he'd have busted Smith up with his jab anyway. Smith looked alright from the waist up but his legs were totally gone when the ref counted him. Smith…

I changed my mind. I watched the replay of the first knockdown. The Ref got it right, he was on vacation, legs stumbling. I'll be interested to see what DeFail has to say about that.

[QUOTE=project xxx1;11376415]watch it again mate,smith fell back down while protesting to the ref the ref done the right thing imo[/QUOTE] If the ref wasn't there to hold him up whilst he was protesting we would have seen Tyson-Berbick 2.
