Groves: 'I got complacent and paid the price'

George Groves says he let himself down, that he got 'complacent for a split second and paid the price', in his super-middleweight contest with Nottingham's Carl Froch.

He is hoping that his new fan base sticks by him in future though:

"I'm very disappointed with tonight. Very, very disappointed. I'll go back and I'll watch it back and no doubt I'll be even more disappointed and frustrated. I feel like I've let myself down because that fight was there for me to win...

...I got complacent for a split second and I paid the price. It's world class boxing so I have to eradicate that from my game. But, I hope the fans stick with me, I hope they carry on supporting me and I'll certainly do them proud as quickly as possible."
