“Of course I’m disappointed. This is boxing. You don’t always get things your own way. It was a great fight. I felt I did enough in the later rounds to nick it. But George had the right gameplan. He performed,” Eubank conceded. “So full credit to him.”
Eubank couldn’t ignore Groves’ talents as a boxer but did point to Groves’ greater size (Eubank is a natural middleweight) and the cut Eubank suffered early on in the fight.
