Saturday night at the Wembley Arena in Wembley, London, United Kingdon, WBA World super middleweight world champion George Groves (27-3, 20 KOs), the Fighting Pride of Hammersmith, successfully defended his title with a fourth round KO over Jamie Cox (24-1, 13 KOs), the previously unbeaten southpaw from Swindon, Wiltshire, UK, at 1:42 of round four.

A body shot to the ribs was all it took.

With the win Groves advances to the World Boxing Super Series semifinals.

“I was in tremendous form going into the tournament,” said Groves after the bout. “It’s another good win.

“I was landing big body shots on Jamie, in the end it was a right hook to the body, it’s a crippling shot—I don’t blame him for not getting up.”

It was Groves’ sixth straight win.

“I picked him (Cox, in the draw) because I believe he was the most dangerous of the unseeded fighters,” added Groves. “I didn’t want an easy fight…But we roll on to the next geezer, whoever that is.”

Cox was aggressive early.

“I made a mistake,” said Cox, “and he made me pay.”
