Review: 2014-11-22, pretty good finish but it is not enough to get three stars: George Groves vs Denis Douglin gets two. George Groves entered this fight with a boxing record of 20-2-0 (15 KOs=75%) and he is ranked as the No.7 super middleweight in the world, both his defeats occurred against Carl Froch (Froch vs Groves I and Froch vs Groves II); after the second loss he came back to win beating Christopher Rebrasse (=Groves vs Rebrasse).
His opponent, Denis Douglin, has a record of 17-3-0 (10 knockouts) and he entered as the No.44 in the same weight class, he lost two consecutive fights between 2012 and 2013, against Jermell Charlo and Jose Angel Rodriguez, but then he won three bouts, the last one against Charles Whittaker. Groves vs Douglin is valid for the WBC Silver super middleweight title; undercard of Nathan Cleverly vs Tony Bellew 2. Watch the video and rate this fight!
