A cut sustained above Eubank's right eye only made things worse for the 26-1 fighter, with the blood pouting from the wound causing him problems throughout the rest of the fight.

"I thought I did enough in the later rounds to win the fight, I thought it was a close fight, but all credit to George", Eubank said. Groves had his arm in a sling at the end of the fight, and appears to have dislocated his shoulder.

This is Eubank's second professional loss, the first coming to middleweight world titleholder Billy Joe Saunders, who scored a split decision win back in 2014 when the pair fought for a pair of European belts.

As far as his own WBSS semi-final is concerned, Smith commented, "I am very confident that I will beat Juergen Braehmer next Saturday in Nuremberg". He stuck in there, he did what he had to do, I was catching him with a lot of shots and he didn't give up. "I thought I pressured him the entire fight".

Groves collected the WBA title with a victory over Fedor Chudinov in Sheffield previous year but there was a true sense of validation surrounding this triumph on Saturday, at the same venue where Carl Froch inflicted a heartbreaking first career loss in November 2013. Here tonight, I wasn't going to let any injury get me out. "There are other world titles out there I have proved I'm more than capable of fighting at world level and I'm still going after the people that have the titles".
