GEORGE GROVES today revealed that he broke his jaw in the third round of his stoppage win over Fedor Chudinov for the WBA super-middleweight title this past weekend.

The 29-year-old, making his fourth attempt at a world title, overcame a strong start from Chudinov to stop the Russian with an unanswered barrage of right hands in the sixth round.

Groves took to social media to reveal he will undergo surgery later today – not that it will wipe the smile off his face.
