George Groves defeats Jamie Cox with crushing fourth round body shot”

The victor on Saturday will fight in the Super Series semi-finals in January against Chris Eubank Jr after he beat Turkey's Avni Yildirim in three rounds on October 7.

Cox had been unbeaten in 24 fights leading up to Saturday night's tussle in the English capital, but Groves delivered a big body shot in the fourth round to floor his opponent.

"It was a good fight", Eubank Jr said.

The Londoner then told Eubank Jr that the 28-year-old was "not big enough" to trouble him in the last four.

"I know what needs to be done and I'm feeling very good".

"Now we have got a super fight for the fans". "That's what we wanted".

Whilst the contest continued, Cox didn't go down without a fight, hitting the world champion with some swift counter punches.

Groves vs. Cox is a battle between two British boxers, and part of the World Boxing Super Series: super-middleweight competition.

Groves at only 29 is an experienced veteran in boxing and recently became a world champion for the first time after several failed attempts at a world title he defeated Fedor Chudinov by TKO for the vacant WBA 168 pound strap.
