Froch vs Kessler II results: George Groves knocks out Noe Gonzalez in five

Scott Heavey

George Groves kept rolling today, knocking out Uruguay's Noe Gonzalez in the fifth round in London.

George Groves breezed past the opposition as expected today, knocking out Noe Gonzalez in the fifth round at the O2 Arena in London.

Groves (19-0, 15 KO) boxed for the first few rounds, getting a few rounds in, and then boom went the dynamite in round five, when Gonzalez (30-3, 22 KO) walked into a wicked right hand. One punch and it was over, though Gonzalez got to his feet, where referee Terry O'Connor made the right decision to stop the fight.

"I'm only ever really happy with a perfect performance, and I don't think I'll ever get one of them. Today, I think I came out and I controlled it from the start. The only mistake I made was training a little bit recklessly when I didn't need to," Groves said after the fight.

"I knew he wouldn't be able to cope with those shots. I was hitting him on the chin, the top of the head, I was catching him around side under the elbow. I waited, got the sweet shot, and put him away."

Groves, 25, has been mentioned for a possible big fight later this year, including a potential showdown with Carl Froch. Promoter Eddie Hearn says that Groves will get a "big fight" in September, and that there will be a "big eye" on the winner of tonight's main event.
