George Groves skipped the post-fight press conference on Saturday night as the super-middleweight was taken straight to the hospital after his victory over Chris Eubank Jr.
"The Saint" dominated the first half in front of a packed Manchester Arena and held on through an expected late onslaught to take the unanimous decision, with the judges scoring 117-112, 116-112, 115-113 in his favour.
Eubank went the distance against Kamil Kulczyk of Poland and knocked him down in the penultimate round before earning a 40-35 points win.
Groves will be defending his WBO title, with Eubank Jr offering up the rather less respected IBO title.

The intensity increased in the ninth, Groves often against the ropes but Eubank Jr's shots becoming wilder, and everyone, including him, knew he was going to need something special to live up to his own predictions. A curt, clinical counter hook seemed to put Eubank Jr down, only for referee Michael Alexander ruling out a knockdown.
"I don't think of retirement, retirement is not a word that even comes into my mind". I didn't get hit clean. But Groves said: "There's no rhyme or reason - it must be people putting money on Eubank but, sadly, they're going to lose it". George ain't ready, I can see it in his eyes.
