A slow start against Billy Joe Saunders in 2014 cost Eubank Jr badly and it seemed as though history was repeating itself in the first round.

The trademark Eubank Jr swarm was shrugged off by Groves despite being trapped at the post, but he now had a taste of the speed and ferocity of his rival. I've got so much more to achieve in my career.

Groves collected the WBA title with a victory over Fedor Chudinov in Sheffield a year ago 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.

"If he's dislocated his shoulder and can't go through into the final, I don't know whether that means I go through". Groves improves to 28 wins, 3 defeats, 20 knockouts, while Eubank reduces to 26 wins, 2 defeats, 20 knockouts.
