I always feel groves is KO waiting to happen with the low left hand/chin issues.
Shaping up to be a belter
Sierra looks a big unit. Groves planting his feet in there, fancies bombing him out over the top with the right hand counter. Risky, maybe.
10-9 Mr Technical but he's getting caught when he stands & trades
Good first round, Groves got hit with a couple of decent shots
Groves looking ragged in the first. Sierra hardly moving at all. Standing square on in the middle of the ring with little head movement and a solid high guard. Groves just edging it but some interesting moments.
groves needs to pick his punches, when he is in the right positions due to footwork
Finally, Farhood mentions that "this is his 2nd fight here in the U.S."
20-18 Groves but its not a convincing display so far.
I dont understand why groves always gets hit with a big right before he wakes up
That was better especially the last min,he's still wild at times mind.

Sierra obviously just wants to throw with groves who was doing a good job of feinting and not becoming too predictable.
1-1, good 2nd round for Groves
fuck a cut
Shit that looks a bad cut on Groves' right eye.
Sierra is alright to a point, battered Don George and managed a draw with Dyah Davis. He can(or could at the time, anyways) evidently hang with the lesser prospects at 168, down to Groves now to show he's one of the better ones. Not doing too bad of a job so far, bothered Sierra quite a bit to the body in the 2nd.
What a round!

Horrible cut
