Groves wins as Gutnechkt taken to hospital

Groves is on a four fight win streak

George Groves defended his WBA international super-middleweight title in London last night against Eduard Gutknecht. 

The German challenger fell ill in his locker room after the bout and was taken to hospital on a stretcher. 

Groves won a unanimous decision and speaking to the Channel 5 after the bout said: "I am very happy with how I fought, it went exactly to plan. I set a great tempo and busted him up badly. I am surprised he made it to the bell - Gutknecht is a tough character.

"We want real, big, proper fights. There was no world title on the line, but we knew Gutknecht was going to give me a tough fight. It will push me on for a world title fight and, ideally, I would love a rematch with Badou Jack," he added.

Jack is due to fight Groves's arch-rival Jamse DeGale in December for the WBC and IBF super-middleweight titles.

Groves beat DeGale by a majority decision in 2011 handing his rival his only loss. A rematch between the pair is certainly on the cards but DeGale must win his fight with Jack before that idea can be entertained.
