George Groves staked his claim for world title shot with an explosive knockout win over Noe Gonzalez at the 02 Arena in London.
Groves hopes to face one of the super-middleweight champions this year and he sent out a chilling warning to his rivals after ruthlessly dismantling Gonzalez inside five rounds.
Gonzalez is a former world title challenger, but he could not contend with the British fighter's classy ring skills and Groves displayed his full repertoire before ending the bout with a big right hand.
Groves quickly found the range with his swift jab in the opener and a right hand soon ripped through Gonzalez's defences.
The Argentinian marched forward with purpose but struggled to land a clean punch on Groves, who boxed neatly off the back foot.

he looked good against another over matched opponent.

He's ranked in the top 5 of all the majors so it's time for a real test I'd say
