George Groves has vowed to carry on despite losing his WBA 'Super' world title to Callum Smith in the World Boxing Super Series final.

Groves was stopped in the seventh round of their super-middleweight showdown in Saudi Arabia, a left hook to the body and a clinical finish leaving him on his knees and unable to make it to his feet.

It was a fourth professional defeat for 'The Saint' and in the build-up, he admitted he could walk away from the sport should he lose, but the 30-year-old insisted it will not be his last fight.

"Embarrassing. I've never been hurt by a body shot before like this in my entire career," he told ITV Box Office afterwards.

"But all credit to Callum. He deserves this night. We knew he could punch, he has height and reach as well so I didn't really want to trade with him. I was landing myself, but so was he and he got the finish.
