    In terms of titles won yes but Groves the bigger name and probably earned a few more quid though....

    Groves would have made much money than Frampton and a far bigger name.

    Groves also didn't duck people the whole of his career

    To be fair Groves did quit. Small or not Frampton has proved his heart many a time in the ring and was a World champ long before Groves.

    Don't really see how anyone could call Groves a quitter after what he showed in his career...

    - Kenny Anderson fight early on in his career he gets put out his arse in a torrid round and looks very ragged - comes back to stop him 2 rounds later.

    - Froch 2 he gets hit with a nuclear bomb that nearly has him doing the splits - the ref waves it off but even in a concussed state of mind he's trying to get up.

    - Takes him 4 attempts and many a rebuilding job and hard road back to finally become world champion. That alone deserves a lot of credit, to not just give in and call it a day but keep dusting yourself down and having to start again.

    - Fights Chris Eubank with his arm hanging off which then led to an absolute nightmare of a time to get himself in some remote shape to even make the final against Callum Smith.

    More successful in terms of accolades, but not £££.

    I doubt he is is jealous of Groves. Both will be multimillionaires but Frampton achieved alot more in the sport and is still earning from boxing.

    I doubt he is jealous of a Super middleweight earning a wee bit more than him so far.

    I agree I don't think Frampton is jealous at all. I was just outlining that Groves would have earned more by quite a bit. But let's face it neither are short of a few quid.

    Jealousy is a feminine trait. Lot of clucking hens on this thread

    Bang on for me. No need for it and personally found Groves’ tweet hilarious. Don’t blame him
