In the early few rounds the fight was going in favour of Froch, who used his jab magnificently while Groves struggle to put his authority in the first half of the fight. In round 7 Groves started to land a few on Froch who was just earting his shots no problem after that 7 round I had Froch winning by 2 round but that came the killer blow in the 8th round which left no doubt in the result and no need see scorecards. Groves was knocked out badly
