Starting quickly and scoring an early knockdown with a countering right in the first round, Nelson (129) spent the next few sessions chasing his challenger, who danced away utilising the jab. By the eighth, however, Nelson started to get to Grove (129) and staggered the latter in the ninth and tenth with heavy blows to head and body.
