Going into the bout, many had expected DeGale to win after two straight ABA titles in 2004 and 2005 and a Commonwealth Bronze medal in March. However, despite boxing earlier in the day, Groves battled to victory in a close fight. For Degale, it was his first domestic loss in over three years. For Groves, it was the beginning of his successful road to the Senior ABA title he would then defend in 2008. Here’s the full fight, round by round.
