Eubank Jr promises to send Groves into retirement

I'll force Groves into early retirement, vows Eubank Jr

George Groves celebrated retaining the WBA world super-middleweight title with his arm in a sling after suffering a suspected dislocated shoulder in the last round of his bruising encounter with fellow Briton Chris Eubank Jr.

"The Saint" dominated the first half in front of a packed Manchester Arena and held on through an expected late onslaught to take the unanimous decision, with the judges scoring 117-112, 116-112, 115-113 in his favour.

Groves faces the victor Callum Smith vs. Jurgen Braehmer clash in the WBSS final.

Though it was bloody and brutal, it was not one for the purists, with Eubank Jr wildly swinging in an attempt to turn the tide.

Promoter Kalle Sauerland insisted he would wait for the extent of Groves' problem to be determined before deciding what would happen next, with the beaten Eubank Jr also a possible stand-in.

Groves' WBA super-middleweight title will be on the line. Before you sign up, though, know that you'll only be able to get it on Sky and Virgin boxes in the United Kingdom, according to the ITV Box Office website. I've boxed on with cuts, broken jaws, everything.

"I dropped him at least once but it didn't count", Groves said in the ring afterwards. I've got so much more to achieve in my career. He wasn't dabbing at it so I don't think it was obscuring his vision. "I entered this tournament to win it".

Eubank - the son of former two-weight world champion Chris Eubank - certainly appears to have inherited his father's granite chin as he stood up to clean shots from throughout against Groves, having been hindered by a cut eye caused in a third-round clash of heads. The better man won, but credit to Junior for getting through the match because I hurt him a lot.

Prince Naseem Hamed went after Chris Eubank, Jr. with no regard for human life.

Groves, who has fought in more big fights, used distance wisely to pick and choose his moments.

"I thought I did enough in the later rounds to win", Eubank Jr told ITV Box Office.

Groves then showed his strength by flipping Eubank Jr nearly through the ropes - the ugly inside exchanges were not concerning him.
