Perhaps, hence the "sort of" rather than simply Groves was robbed. Most of the fights listed had pretty close first fights (Kov-Ward, Choc-SSR) rather than out and out robberies so I figured it worth listing. I too think Froch would have gotten to him eventually but we've seen people come back from a lot worse. We wouldn't have gotten "in front of 80,000 fans at Wembley" or "fell on his leg" without it though so...Nah, froch was gonna get a stoppage there I reckon. It was early, no doubt about it, but groves had started shipping a few big shots from what I recall and was looking tired after throwing the kitchen sink at froch for the first 6. I wouldn't say the first was a robbery but it was a premature stoppage which ultimately led to a rematch for groves that he wouldn't have gotten otherwise.
