He was never the same after Froch took his soul and obliterated him in the second fight.

I always had a soft spot for Groves, he was always game.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the retirement of George Groves. A fighter who grew on me over the years and I was pleased that he eventually lifted a world title. Was comprehensively beaten by Callum Smith and was sensible enough to know his time was up at that level. It seems that the fight in which he seriously injured Guknecht played a factor in his decision and I'm not sure he was the same fighter after that incident.

I noticed Carl Froch was classy as usual with his comments.

It's a pity Froch has proven to be such a co*k in post his boxing career - I loved him as a fighter

Would agree with Benny, Groves definitely grew on me as well post Froch fights. A warrior in the ring. Re Froch, a great fighter who, up until the Groves fights carried himself well and respected his opponents. Groves got under his skin and Froch fought fire with fire. I also enjoy his analysis ringside during bouts. Now I'm not any social media, so he could be a complete ar$e on there.

See Froch and Ward are having a good old spat on Twitter at the minute. I'd love to think it was with the idea of a final fight....but i think as pointed out, Froch is just a bit of a twat.

One of the boxing heads at work sent me Froch's message to Groves:

"If youíve never boxed, you will never understand the profound respect between two fighters, even if they donít like each other.
@StGeorgeGroves
 I wish you a healthy & happy retirement. You was a solid world champion & you did yourself & your family very proud. Take care champ! 👊🏼"

I believe this is his second statement after making a tube out of himself with the first?

He was on record years ago saying he wouldnt fight Ward again as it would just be the same result.  Now he wouldnt risk his new nose.

Jaysus that was brutal. Garcia is a smooth operator. Fight should have been stopped cheeseman could well have suffered long term damage.

Was good to see. Judges scoring not getting any better either

DeGale retires. Quickly followed by Froch announcing that he would have battered him.

He would have, but Froch is a knob too. De Gale did well to become world champion, but didnt really have any wins over any of the top super middleweights.

Is Froch genuine with these comments or has he now become a willing parody of himself. I really hope it's the latter.
