    He was better than I thought he would be.

    Fantastic punch from Matthews though.

    Brook was excellent - handed out some real punishment and Jones wasn't offering anything back, ref right to stop it.

    That will be an absolute slaughter. Mayweather will destroy him. Probably make it last a while as well to show off his skillz while carrying out the humiliation by a thousand cuts.

    Been denied by the Khan camp, thank god. He would be ripped apart by Mayweather
    Wolves have ambition and wit... why is it such a crime?

    Ironically enough, he wouldn't, not straight away. PBF isn't a KO merchant. Khan is very very fast. He has no hope of winning mind!

    Yep.

    He is unreal

    I hope he carries on. It is all a show mind.

    On twitter follow Kugan Cassius for interviews - he's excellent

    Froch has stopped him. Groves and the crowd don't like it and stuff being thrown into the ring. It's turning ugly according to five live.

    I wanted Froch to win, but that was stopped far too early - feels so wrong - Groves deserved a few more seconds to see if he fought back.

    Groves was well up on points at the time and wasn't floored. Froch wouldn't shake hands at the end.

    I don't think he would have lasted the next minute, but it should never have been stopped when it was.

    Awful stoppage, but not as awful as the George Groves TV from Sky. It was like having Wolves Albion on the tele and having Bully and John Richards commentating. Jim Watt was a disgrace completely silent whenever Froch showed any decent offence.

    Totally agree with this - Jim Watt was totally biased, and overlooked much of Froch's work - he was an embarrassment.

    I wish the ref would have waited, but hey Froch, Groves and sky TV are the winners here as it leaves the doubt around the fight to all but guarantee a rematch. As for Jim Watt considering this was Froch's 11th straight title fight I thought his commentary showed a complete lack of respect to Froch. I'm happy he won.

    Jim Watt does talk absolute nonsense but Groves was well in front, he was the one landing the clean shots up until the last round. Boxing continues to kill itself with the decisions, Groves was hurt but he was still throwing punches back and you could tell he was still there as when the referee grabbed him he knew what had happened straight away. Shocking decision and Froch has made himself look a fool after the fight although in saying all that it was a great fight for British boxing but in the grand scheme of things neither of them is near Andre Ward.

    True, it's like the Benn v Eubank fights, neither were the best in the world when they fought, they were just high profile here in the UK. Groves would probably be better refusing a rematch, it could go either way again.

    Of course neither is near Ward. Ward is the #2 P4P fighter in the world behind Mayweather.

    In a way I feel sorry for both.

    Groves technically took Froch to bits, made him look a mug at times. He dropped him which doesn't happen often at all with Carl and was definitely winning by a lot wider margin than the judges had it (1 point)

    I'm not sure what Froch has done to Jim Watt though because the commentary was the most one sided biased shit i've heard in a long time, even when Froch was getting into the fight later on he refused to give him any credit.

    People will be calling for the re-match, although Steiglitz is another option for Groves to get his hands on a world title and I think Groves would definitely win that fight.

    One of those nights for Groves. Lost the fight but he's won a lot of fans tonight and at 25 and a big future ahead it may turn out a good night for him in the long term.

    I had GG up by one as Froch was still hurting him. Close rounds mind.

    Jim Watt is a prick and always will be

    Saying they are nowhere near Ward? Why is this relevant? Wolves are nowhere near Man Utd? Big deal.

    Enjoy the fact we have two of the world's best at 168

    Groves gave Froch a technical lesson, the ref had a nightmare. Bring on the rematch.

    That technical his face is an absolute mess this morning.

    Red was excellent premature stoppage aside.

    Groves always marks up in all his fights he's got pale skin and he's ginger. Have you seen Froch's face?

    Groves made froch look a mug technically.

    I feel Groves surprised Froch but make him look a mug takes it too far. Ward did that.

    Froch's face isn't half as bad as Groves and I also feel Froch was about to stop him too

    I thought Jim Watt called it as it was. Froch looked all over the place early on and in my opinion massively underestimated Groves. He was on the back foot and was only pawing his jab, with Groves setting him up for the right at will. Groves needed to get it done early though, because you knew the longer it went on, the stronger Froch would become.
    Cracking fight that was finished too early, better that way though than too late.
