Probably the right time to hang them up for Groves after ten years as a pro and having achieved everything he wanted to in the sport.  I always like the way he went about things in not looking to take an easy route and he managed to produce some of the biggest domestic fights in recent years as a result.

Always liked him myself, good fighter. Had his weaknesses of course and suffered some heavy defeats but always (until the last one) found a way to bounce back and rebuild. Grafted harder than most for his world title and is retiring at a good time.

Seen his interview on IFL today, didn't give much away when asked about why Adam Booth was left out of his thank you's. Would love to know how that relationship broke down so drastically.

Oh good a George Groves thread, this will likely end well Grin Grin Grin

In all honesty a good career. Never backed down from a challenge. Had some good wins and some bad defeats. Always took a chance which some other fighters could learn lessons from
