Groves' record contains wins over the likes of James DeGale, Paul Smith, Martin Murray and notably Chris Eubank Jr, where he scored a gutsy points win despite dislocating his shoulder in the final round.

But it was his rivalry with Froch which launched him into the public consciousness.

Groves, 30, lost his world title to fellow Briton Callum Smith in the World Boxing Super Series final in September.

It was his 32nd bout in an 11-year professional career and in announcing his retirement Groves said he "knew the desire to fight had left" him.

In a statement, Groves offered "a prayer" for Eduard Gutknecht, who suffered a brain aneurysm after their fight in 2016, leaving him unable to walk or talk.

"Boxing has been good to me and I believe I have been good for boxing. I hope I have entertained you all; I have always strived to be the best fighter I can be."

The former European, British, and Commonwealth super-middleweight champion says he will now focus on a new role as an adviser for the organisation which has guided his career while continuing to follow a "new interest of motivational speaking"
