Landed a very nice right hand there, but then got caught right after

Shit, cut does look bad
The cuts OK unless the ref/ doctor panics. Looks worse than it is.
30-27 Groves

Best round of the fight, Gorgeous George cut from a butt & going to war in final minute. Landing more than he's taking but not the best tactics
Groves skin is so fragile, he bruises and swells very easily.
Yeah clash of heads. Groves covered in blood. If he takes Sierra to war I think he can bomb him out but it's a risky tactic.
Groves can't seem to be in an easy fight unless its Paul Smith.
Feckin hell. Great action. Cut looks awful slight bonus it's not his left eye.

Groves skin looks very similar to how Henry Coopers used to be.
Horrible cut, not going to stop the fight but Groves will be out for a while, Fwank a relieved man if he can't make the Anderson fight in September now.
Groves is good at setting traps
Fucking hell Groves, keeps landing the big right and getting caught trying to wildy follow it up.
40-36 Groves

His best round so far, good fight this.
George ain't showing great power for a guy that's a bit of a gunslinger when forced into a fight. Anderson walked through his head shots too. Worries me a little.
Like this aggressive boxing from Groves, he's entertaining the yanks tonight.

Sierra has a fairly bad swelling on his left eye......
Corner done a good job.
Very good fight for first bout of tv undercard.
Didn't realise Guerrero had any fans.
Yeah, Groves really is a fighter I wouldn't put money on when he makes it to world class level. A bit like Amir Khan. Not a reliable chin, and leaves himself exposed.
Fuck it i'm cracking open the 50% vodka
