WBA super middleweight world champion, George Groves, takes on undefeated challenger, Jamie Cox, in his first fight as a participant in the World Boxing Super Series tournament.

Groves starts cautiously, gesturing a couple of skittish feints, he picks his moment, catches Cox with a couple of counters, out works him as the round goes on, land with more accuracy and sharpness. Cox has a better round in the second as he is aggressive, pins Groves on the ropes, makes it tough for the champion, lands more punches when they exchange. Cox unloads a fast flurry of punches on Groves before 'Saint George' moves off the ropes and regains his composure. Groves finishes a sloppy round with a sharp, impaftful combination.

Cox charges at Groves in round 3, landing a great left hand, he tries to sustain the pressure. Round 3 becomes positive before the first minute is done, as Groves lands punches as Cox comes in, but still gets caught, meaning they trade punches. Groves speed, strength, experience shows in the middle part of the third round, as he tags Cox walking forward, and overpowers him. It is Groves who lands the cleaner punches in the last minute of the round, as Cox tries to make a fight of it, but Cox, not without success himself.

The end comes in round 4, when Groves lands a crushing right uppercut to the body in a sequence of punches which land clean on the target of Cox, after waiting and defending patiently as he let his opponent charge forward like a steam train. Groves not only put Cox down, but he seemed to knock the breath out of him, and almost disabled him from getting up, as Cox, bravely tried to beat the count, but was destroyed by the deadly body shot from Groves, and was a knockout victim in his first defeat.

Groves would be set to face Eubank Jr after his victory, in the next leg of the tournament, a match up which would inevitably fascinate and excite the fans who love boxing, and love to see great match ups.

Prediction,

I like this fight, and undefeated, untested warrior, a slugger, with power, punch resistance, against a veteran who has been involved in 4 world title contests, a current world champion, who had a great set of all round boxing skills, as well as dedication, power, should be a very interesting one.

I like George Groves, I've always been a fan of his, I thought he boxed very well against James Degale when he defeated him with that close majority decision back in 2011, and I remember when he fought Carl Froch in Manchester in 2013, he was the underdog, but I predicted him to beat Carl Froch. Groves looked great against Froch, built up a long lead after 8 rounds, having dropped, dominated the champion, but was controversially stopped, and was then knocked out cold in their highly anticipated rematch the following year. Groves looked great in every right between his defeat to Badou Jack, and now, with 5 solid performances, wins over Martin Murray, and to win his world title back in May, Fedor Chudinov. I think Groves now, at 29, he is in his absolute prime, I hope he doesn't decline anytime soon, and I don't think he will, he could even have 5 years left before we see him start to go downhill, but for now, he is in his prime, just about as good as he is ever going to be, and it is his ultimate opportunity to prove to the world that he is a great fighter, he is as good as his supporters have always said he is, to not only be a win a world title, but defend it, to reign as a world champion.

I've only seen Jamie Cox fight twice, most recently, his fight against against Lewis Taylor, on the undercard of Brook vs Spence, at Bramall Lane in Sheffield, the same night in which his opponent in this upcoming fight, finally, became a world champion, obviously now, Cox is aiming to make that a short lived chapter. Cox looked good against Taylor, but not great in my opinion, offensively, he was very good, he's heavy handed, he's great on a slugfest, but Cox, against Taylor, defensively, was very poor, and his flat footed, maybe slightly faulty stance didn't help him, he was hit with a lot of shots, and although a big puncher, he has stopped only just over half his opponents, so he doesn't have so much power that he can afford to be so defensively limited at this level, have so many flaws which will be exploited, without it mattering. I think Jamie Cox is like a slightly bigger, nowhere near as heavy handed, less educated version of David Lemieux.

I think Groves will domiante this fight, Cox will soak up big shots from Groves early, but he's never faced a puncher like Groves, and if he fancies he can hurt Groves, and if he does find the Londoner's chin, Groves, now, is experienced, wise, he'll know what to do if he does feel the weight of anything, he can tie Cox up, and if Cox, because he is very physically strong Jamie Cox, manages to get free from the clinches, and does go looking for the target to capitalise, then I think he will only miss, and get stopped in his tracks by that railroad jab from Groves. I think if Groves finds he can't get Cox out of there early, he'll take a more negative, restricted approach in rounds 4-6, getting behind his jab, and following it up with huge right hands which land brutally accurately on the target, but he'll throw few power shots, and Cox will work 3 minutes a round, finding little accuracy. I think Groves will find Cox hard work at times, I can see him getting cut, Cox, making it ugly, trying to rough Groves up, bully him, and he'll land some solid shots himself, most of them on the inside.

I think Groves will raise his offence in round 7, starting to punish a tiring Cox, batter away at the body, and he'll sustain it, in a still quite measured, sensible, but nasty, spiteful way. I think rounds 7-9 will be torrid for a tough, brave Jamie Cox he'll take a lot of energy sapping punches, his face will be a mess, and Groves, dropping Cox late in the round with a deadly body shot, which Cox bravely, just about manages to get up from. I think when Groves learns early in round 10, that Cox has recovered well, and he isn't done just yet, he will somewhat take round 10 off, and Cox will tries to make the most he possibly can out of the round, which he possibly manages to win on work rate, but he won't find a lot of accuracy, and he will seem to have punched himself out. I think round 11 will be a brutal 3 minute beatdown from Groves, with Cox managing to stay on his feet, but nothing else, whilst Groves, using what he has in the tank so well, wasting nothing, looking like he couldn't miss if he tried. I think Cox's corner will retire him from the fight before he can go out for the last round, defenceless, exhausted, and against a still dangerous, athletic, in control Groves, saving him from further punishment. I think Groves will win via RTD, 11, with the scorecards at the time of the stoppage being 108-100, 109-99, 108-99, defending his world title, and impressing big time in doing so.

I think Groves will win, not sure if he'll stop him, but I think he'll win.

That was quite a good fight. Cox did well and was causing Groves a lot of trouble in the 2nd and 3rd rounds by pressuring him. I'm definitely looking forward to Groves vs. Eubank now, should be competitive.

What a finish from George Groves!
Groves is a heck of a fighter, after that knockout loss to Carl Froch, and then that soul crushing defeat you Badou Jack, he is in his prime, he is dominating fights, beating very good opponents, defending his world title, Groves has done himself proud with what he has achieved, what he has bounced back from, no matter what happens now. All those people who said "Groves is done, had his 5 minutes of fame in the first Froch fight, and that's it now", they are the laughing stock now.
