GEORGE GROVES will see a specialist having dislocated his shoulder in the win over Chris Eubank Jr, but remains adamant he will feature in the World Boxing Super Series final.

Groves successfully defended his WBA world super middleweight title, while also taking Eubank Jr’s IBO belt, on points at the Manchester Arena on Saturday.

The victor was tactically superior throughout the all-British bout, yet his shoulder popped out of its socket early in the last round, meaning Groves had to fend off a late Eubank Jr onslaught in their semi-final.
