WHAT WOULD YOU AD­VISE GE­ORGE GROVES TO DO FOL­LOW­ING HIS DE­FEAT TO CAL­LUM SMITH?

Boxing News - - THE PANEL -

Paddy Fitz­patrick

For­mer trainer of Groves

His will to win and de­sire to be recog­nised as a great cham­pion means he has ce­mented him­self in the history books. There’s noth­ing left to do. I wish him the best what­ever de­ci­sion he makes. He de­serves to be con­tent, but prob­a­bly never will be.

Gareth A Davies

Box­ing jour­nal­ist

Re­tire, or pos­si­bly have one more fight if it was an off-night. Ge­orge Groves looked old in there, gun shy, and, dare I say it about a fighter I have al­ways ad­mired, vul­ner­a­ble.

Miles Shinkwin

Light-heavy con­tender

It’s com­pletely up to him. He’s cer­tainly no fool and won’t make any silly de­ci­sions. If I were him, I’d take a nice rest, en­joy time with his wife and kids then see what his op­tions are. He’s a huge name in Bri­tish box­ing still.

Andy Clarke

Box­ing com­men­ta­tor

I’d like to see Ge­orge re­tire. He’s had a great ca­reer and has noth­ing left to prove. The “Saint’s” al­ways man­aged to do things his way, which in box­ing is a very dif­fi­cult thing to achieve, so to see him walk away now, on his own terms, would be great.
