George Groves: My Chinny Rep Cost Me The Fight
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

Super middleweight contender George Groves was very close to securing one of the biggest upset victories of the last few years, when he scored a hard knockdown of IBF/WBA champion Carl Froch in the first round and then outboxed him for the majority of fight. Groves was ahead on all three of the official cards, when Froch got him in the some trouble in the ninth round and the referee jumped in to stop the action.

Groves admits he was hurt, but nowhere near as hurt as Froch was in several of the previous rounds. The Manchester crowd was furious with the stoppage by referee Howard Foster.

Groves felt the referee jumped in too soon because his ability to take a good punch has been questioned several times in the past and Froch is regarded as a very hard puncher.

"I feel that the ref got it wrong," Groves said. "There's no way it should have been stopped. It's a bitter pill to swallow. I think I'm a victim of my 'chinny' reputation and a victim of Froch's supposed punching power. We are going to look back at it and see if anything can be done. This won't sit easy with me."

before all the hype, georgey groves was supposed to be a "soft mandatory". im a fan of both these fighters and it was definately too early. the referee was a cunt, just like that slag who had alvarez up against fmj. cuntox.

Groves being classy in his response to a bad stoppage (his first loss at that). A rematch is definitely warranted.

comment by alembic, on 11-24-2013
Groves more than earned a rematch. Team Froch will get heat if they go with a soft mandatory instead. Besides, a rematch makes more sense for all parties. Tell you what, any chance of Andre Ward getting a big money shot at Froch is gone. Froch has one more fight left and then he'll probably...

Just watched the fight, absolutely disgusting stoppage. Groves got jobbed and Froch sound like a right prick in the post fight interview.

Groves is really taking this situation better than I expected. I'd be livid with the ref and commission, but he seems to be able to put it in context. He deserves an immediate rematch and I hope he's given one.
