Fighters' Quotes after the fight:

BADOU JACK

“I tried to get the knockout, but I didn't. I didn't go to the body enough.

“Haven't thought about my next fight yet, but there's a lot of big fights for me. I heard Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. wants to fight me. “

“I want to enjoy this win but I will fight anyone.”

GROVES:

“I thought I won the fight decisively. All credit to him though scoring the knockdown in the first round.

“I thought I controlled the fight with my jab and that I was in control throughout it appeared closer to the judges.”
