(Boxing) George Groves Knocks-Out Fedor Chudinov In The Sixth Round

George Groves claimed the Vacant WBA world super-middleweight title on Saturday defeating the Russian Fedor Chudinov with a fourth round stoppage after a series of Clean Punches.

The Brit overcame a slow start, bursting into life in the fifth round with a flurry of blows then following up with a barrage of hooks which left the Russian dazed to force a stoppage in the sixth round.

"This is the end of a lifetime's work," Groves told Sky Sports after his victory.

"[Trainer] Shane McGuigan has resurrected my career. Now I'm mature enough to admit that. I feel like I'm the best in the division. I'm willing and ready to fight anyone.

"He caught me with some good right hooks, and one actually stung quite a bit. But I found my feet. I can put those losses to bed now, get on with my life and hopefully go on to better things."

Groves (26-3, 19 KOs), 29, from west London, came into the ring with five straight wins but had lost four previous title fights which he admitted that this would have been the end to his Boxing career if he lost. Groves is back among the super-middleweight elite to start chatter about a rematch with DeGale, whom he out-pointed in 2011.
