Warren: The General Consensus, DeGale Beats Groves

By Edward Chaykovsky

Promoter Frank Warren believes his boxer James DeGale was jobbed in the grudge fight with George Groves on Saturday night at the O2 Arena in London. Groves won a very close twelve round majority decision in a tight battle of unbeaten super middleweight prospects. DeGale, a 2008 Olympic Gold medal winner, was the heavy favorite to win. The scores were 115-115 and two cards of 115-114 for Groves.

Warren is going to push for an immediate rematch and he wants it to happen as soon a possible.

"The general consensus seems to be that James won the fight, so they should order a rematch," said Warren to the BBC. "I don't think George's team will be interested, but there's no-one else for him. It should happen straight away. One way or another that fight will happen again. If it doesn't happen, George Groves should be ashamed of himself.

"I haven't found one person who thought George won that fight and I'm sure he's got a lot of pride and he wouldn't want it to be like that. I'm sure he wants his victory to be an emphatic one. The [British Boxing] Board ordered this fight in the first place, let them order a rematch," he said. "We'll lobby them and write to them and ask them to do it."

I had DeGale winning by one point. The fight was so close that I'm content with the result though.

Yeah, whatever Frank... I guess you have only been talking to your minions and Degale fans. Degale lost to the better fighter that night. Plain and simple.
