Photos: Groves Hands a Bloody Chris Eubank Jr. a Boxing Lesson

George Groves retained his WBA World title, and captured the IBO title, and earned a unanimous points verdict to move into the final of the inaugural super middleweight edition of the World Boxing Super Series.

The judges scored it 117-112, 116-112 and 115-113 all in favour ‘The Saint’.

“The better man won on the night,” said Groves. “Credit to Junior for getting through 12 rounds, I didn’t think he would. Chris didn’t lie when he said he was going to grit it out. That was a terrific fight for the fans.”

A cut above Jr's right eye in the third round hampered the 28-year-old.

“I couldn’t see out of my right eye for most of the fight but a cut’s a cut and you have to deal with it," said Eubank Jr.

“George has got the heart of a true champion and did what he had to do. I thought I did enough in the later rounds to win it. But hopefully, we’ll get the rematch on.”

After the fight Groves was taken to hospital to get an examination of a suspected dislocated shoulder which he fought within the last and most dramatic of the 12 rounds.

"My shoulder feels pretty sore but I wasn't going to let anything beat me tonight.”

Next week semi-final in Nuremberg will decide whether Groves faces England's Callum Smith or Jurgen Brahmer of Germany in the final.

Tickets for Smith-Braehmer is available via eventim.de.

[QUOTE=Evil_Meat;18497027]What a great story of perseverance. After he was stopped by Froch twice (also a lost to Jack), many were writing him off. Congrats to him for becoming a champ, and successfully defending it against Eubank.[/QUOTE] Very well said, imagine…

[QUOTE=jackblack008;18497260]Please go ahead and train under Abel Sanchez or Robert Garcia[/QUOTE] It would be interesting to see what Eubank Jr can do under Abel's training program at Big Bear.
