Groves KO’s Cox to set up Eubank Jr. WBSS Semi-Final!

WBA Super Middleweight champion ‘Saint George’ Groves stopped his undefeated countryman, Jamie Cox, with a bodyshot within four rounds to set up a highly anticipated 2018 showdown Chris Eubanks Jr. in the semi-finals of the World Boxing Super Series.

The bout started off quickly with both fighters throwing bombs. Groves landed often to the body in round one as he threw in combinations, but Cox showed his mettle in Rounds 2 & 3 as he worked to bully Groves to the ropes and rocked Groves with a few left hands of his own. Groves settled things down in Round 4 landing several right hands upstairs before he finally tucked a right hand into Cox’ midsection that dropped him to the canvas, where was unable to beat the count.

With the win Groves improves to 27-3 (20 KOs), while Jamie Cox falls to 24-1 (13 KOs).
