    Some people are just a bit childish and thin skinned. This applies to boxers and one or two posters on this thread too.

    Thing with Smith is. He’s never been hurt the way Groves was in that fight. As people have mentioned there was a punch on the floor as well. Anyway, if I was him I’d pipe down because even if I was 99.9% sure I wouldn’t ‘quit’ you just don’t know until you’re in that situation and then you’ll look like a right **** and giving people ammo. This is could well happen for him at light heavy weight.

    There's a very twisted culture now where people insult you and you're not supposed to attack them back or you're 'childish'. What is this, some desert messiah turn the other cheek and let people spit on you bull****? In old Europe a man calls another a coward publicly and they might well be duelling with swords or pistols to the death within the week. A verbal response is the least you can do. And in fact Groves would be in the right here to challenge Frampton to a fist fight and put him away. Don't tell me nobody would love to see that, either, or that Hearn wouldn't make it PPV if it was legal.

    Of course most modern white men would cry about how 'emotional' or 'uncivilised' that was of Groves or some nonsense and how superior they were for their indifference when Frampton ****s in their mouth down the pub. When you consider that not too long ago you might have to face a sword or bullet for mocking a man as a coward like that, a little boxing match between boxers seems pretty lighthearted. Let's get real, it's extremely low of Frampton or anyone to not privately but publicly broadcast the idea that Groves is a coward from safe distance, especially in the age of mass media, lower than anything Groves might say in retaliation. I think George did a pretty good job with it all things considered.

    If you slag someone off and call them a quitter, especially a boxer like groves who fought with heart, expect a mouthful. Good on groves basically, the guy doing snide slagging off is in the wrong in my view. Groves went in strong but it probably pissed him off.

    Groves seemed fine when doing a question and answer thing with Froch recently. He took the fact he lost the rematch in good humour and seemed to get on with carl ok. I don’t think there are demons personally, he probably just gets sensitive about his legacy now he retired, being labelled a quitter is not something he wants is it. Especially by a jumped up smirking twat, I can see why he jumped the gun a bit.

    I watched the interview I don't think Smith said much wrong at all. Thought he took a knee to recover and saw him shake his head. Only realised after that it was the body shot that had him.

    Said he intended to let everything out on him that round once the ref resumed as didn't want to look back and have any regrets.

    Nothing wrong with that at all. Ironically, shame for Groves he didn't have that mindset in round 1 Vs Froch

    It obviously goes a lot deeper than just what Frampton said on this occasion. This will have something to do with the McGuigan’s too, whom Groves is very supportive of.

    He fights at a higher weight so not surprised he made more plus their was a WBSS at his weight. Frampton will still be worth alot and has been more successful in the ring.

    I agree mate. I think that is the real issue. Plus Groves will be hearing only one side of the story.

    I think he definitely has lot of daemons from the Gutknecht fight. I don't think he mentally recovered from that, understandably.

    Groves did quit in the Smith fight, that's just a fact technically. He was down and hurt, shook his head, and got up immediately after the referee waved the fight. It doesn't mean that he's a coward or anything like that. He probably knew he was out, would have got brutally knocked out if he stood up, and was thinking of retiring anyway, so quitting was the logical thing.
