At the SSE Wembley Arena, on Saturday night, George Groves made a successful defence of his WBA super-middleweight title.

In doing so, the Chelsea supporting Hammersmith born fight marched into the semi-finals of the World Boxing Super Series to set up a fight against Chris Eubank Jnr.

It is the fight all-Britain wanted and now they?ll get their wish.

At the Wembley Arena, Groves was matched against a fellow British fighter in Jamie Cox, previously, earlier in their careers, the two had been room-mates.

But at the Wembley Arena there was no room for sentiment as Groves had business to attend to and he did it in style, stopping Cox inside four rounds, thereby ending Cox?s unbeaten run as a professional fighter.

The fight came to a dramatic end, when Groves caught Cox with a stunning body-shot sending his opponent to the canvas, a punch Cox was never going to recover from.

Talking to the media afterwards, Groves had this to say about the victory,

‘I was in tremendous form going into the tournament, it’s another good win.

‘I was landing big body shots on Jamie, in the end it was a right hook to the body, it’s a crippling shot – I don’t blame him for not getting up.’

The win moves Groves record, as a professional, to 27 wins from 30 fights.

Our congratulations go to George Groves and we look forward to the semi-final, of the World Boxing Super Series, where he?ll take on Chris Eubank Jnr.
