George Groves

“The better man won on the night. 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.”

 

Regarding Groves’ suspected dislocated shoulder, he added: "My shoulder feels pretty sore but I wasn’t going to let anything beat me tonight.”

 

Chris Eubank Jr

“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."

 

“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.
