GEORGE GROVES has praised the family of Eduard Gutknecht for their ‘wonderful’ reaction to their tragic fight last year, which left the German hospitalised with a bleed on the brain.

Groves outpointed Gutknecht over 12 rounds in London and Eduard was later taken to hospital.

Gutknecht’s wife Julia revealed in April that the 34-year-old was not able to walk or talk, and Groves admits the incident is still difficult to come to terms with.
