More:



One of the biggest British fights of the year may also be the most controversial, as many believed DeGale did enough to win the British and Commonwealth super middleweight titles that were up for grabs. But when the results were announced in front of a huge crowd at the O2 Arena in London, Groves was the one leaving with the belts.

Heard this was a bullshit decision too, time to score it right!

No bullshit at all, the right fighter won this mostly boring fight!

Champion97's picture

Very interesting fight, thinking man's fight, tense, a bit dirty at times, but professionally boxed. I think Groves won this fight, it was certainly close, but Groves won, he was just slightly better I think, his tactics, his timing, his skill level, just a notch up from what Degale brought to the fight in the end, in the late rounds, Degale seemed to me to be the more frustrated fighter, and Groves, the guy who was boxing the more successfully strategic fight, may not be exactly how it was, but that was my perception of the fight. Round by round, Degale landed more punches, his variety was better than Groves's, he boxed very well too, the majority think he should have gotten the decision, but I just don't think he was accurate enough, sharp enough, technical enough ultimately, and he was just edged out in this fight, against his bitter rival, the underdog.
