British super-middleweight George Groves may have successfully turned back the challenge of tough Mexican Francisco Sierra at the HP Pavilion on San Jose, California on Saturday night but he sustained a nasty cut in the third round and looked worryingly vulnerable at times.


A head clash in the third round opened a cut around Groves’,15-0, right eye and it did effect him but he eventually got the job done in the sixth round when floored Sierra. A a cracking right hand stunned the Mexican before a thumping left hook that followed finally sent him crashing to the canvas. Sierra rose scrabbled to his feet at the count of eight and was allowed to continue but a series of heavy right hands forced the referee to step in and stop the contest.


Groves is scheduled to face bitter rival Kenny Anderson in a rematch in September but the severity of the cut sustained in this latest battle may just delay the rematch for a short spell.
