O2 Arena, London, England - In the heavily hyped super middleweight grudge fight, Commonwealth champion George Groves (13-0, 11KOs) defeated British champion and 2008 Olympic Gold medal winner James DeGale (10-1, 8KOs) in a very close and tactical fight. Groves won a twelve round majority decision. Many of the rounds were close and very difficult to score. The scores were 115-115, 115-114, 115-114. The fight was a rematch; Groves beat DeGale in the amateur ranks.

WBO light heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly (22-0, 11KOs) stopped Aleksy Kuziemski (21-3, 5KOs) in the fourth round. The fight was prematurely stopped at 1:27 of the fourth by American referee Danny Nelson. The referee felt a bleeding cut over Kuziemski's left eye was too serious to allow him to continue.

Former British amateur superstar Frankie Gavin (10-0, 8 KOs) got his first professional belt after a lopsided victory over experienced veteran Young Mutley (29-6, 14 KOs).  All three judges scored it (a bit closer than one could imagine) for Frankie Gavin: 119-109 (Danny Nelson and Cesar Ramos) and 118-110 (Carlos Ortiz Jr.). BoxingScene saw a clear shutout for the Brit: 120-108. Referee was Richie Davis. Gavin acquired the vacant WBO I/C welterweight belt, which will help him to crack the top-15 of the WBO ranks.

Former British Olympian Billy Joe Saunders (9-0, 6KOs) stopped Kevin Hammond (8-7-1, 4 KOs) in two rounds in a middleweight contest.
