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

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.
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.
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.
