George Groves hits back at ‘jealous’ Carl Frampton after claims he ‘quit’ against Callum Smith

The Sun Sports 1 month ago

GEORGE GROVES has hit back at “jealous” Carl Frampton – after reacting furiously to claims he quit against Callum Smith.

Former world boxing champion Frampton suggested Groves quit in his seventh-round KO against Smith when the two met in the World Boxing Super Series, when he subsequently retired.

But Groves, now retired, went on Twitter and blasted Frampton, calling him “a jealous little c***”.

Londoner Groves, who retired in January at the age of 30, then urged his fans to tag Frampton as they had blocked each other on the social media platform.

The message he posted to Frampton read: “I just saw Carl Frampton suggesting in an interview with Callum Smith that I quit.

“If you’ve got something to say half pint then say it to me, you jealous little c***.

“You know f*** all about me, and f*** all about what it took to even make it to that fight.

“I’m not going to let little haters like you diminish my career.

“Research my career. See what I overcame and try and find ‘quit’ in me.”

Responding to Groves’ attack, Northern Irishman Frampton posted: “Thanks for the numbers mate, we will discuss on our next episode of #TKO.”

Groves ahead on one of the three judges’ score cards against fellow Brit Smith.


The other was a tie, with Smith ahead on the other scorecard when referee Luis Pabon halted the contest.

He had previously been WBA world champion and had two titanic fights with world champion Carl Froch in 2013 and 2014.

Groves won 28 of his 32 professional fights, beating Chris Eubank Jr and Olympic champ James DeGale.
