´Quick-healer´ Groves hopeful over shoulder injury

18 Февраль 2018 23:00

George Groves is optimistic he will be fit for the World Boxing Super Series final but said it is "impossible to know" if he will have recovered from a shoulder injury for the showdown on June 2.

Groves retained his WBA super-middleweight title with a unanimous points victory over Chris Eubank Jr in a bloody battle at a raucous Manchester Arena on Saturday.

The Londoner appeared to dislocate his shoulder in a frantic final round and went straight to hospital after setting up a decider against Callum Smith or Jurgen Brahmer.

Groves told iFL TV: "The shoulder is okay. I hope it was clear it popped out in the 12th round last night. It went a bit skewiff.

"It is one of the most painful injuries I have had but it is back in now. I had some X-rays last night and will see a specialist.

"Hopefully, it isn't going be a big problem. It will only be a problem if you damaged a bone from my understanding, but the X-ray didn't show any of that."

Pressed if he thinks he will be able to take his place in the final, the 29-year-old added: "It is impossible to know at the moment.

"June 2 isn't that far away - it is about 14 or 15 weeks away. We'll seek advice from the specialist and see how long until I can get back punching, because if there is other stuff I can get on with, I will.

"It doesn't take me long to get fit and this competition has kept me sharp and focused and functioning properly. I broke my jaw in May and was boxing in October. I always heal quickly, I have been a quick healer. I live a clean life."
