George Groves surprised a few people today when he came in well under the super-middleweight limit which has prompted fans to comment on one thing in particular about how he looked.
Groves is a big super-middleweight. As big as any top 168lbs at the weight really.
He’s always had to cut weight in his career. That’s no surprise.
However after weighing in today many felt that he looked terrible and gaunt at the weight:
George looks drained..i smell blood????

Groves gaunt, drained and very tense. Eubank perfectly comfortable. Think Jr has got this – what a fight though. Can’t wait.

Groves did not look good on the scales, drained, different beast when he refuels, Jnr is a MW so hes always good on the scales as SM

Should be good, Eubank looked healthy, Groves a little drained, hopefully he doesn’t fade later on.. I like this fight

The thing is though, he always looks that way at a weigh-in.
He’ll be completely re-hydrated by tomorrow night.
