"I dropped him at least once but it didn't count, which was dubious".
The new IBO and WBA (Super) champion earned a unanimous points victory over Eubank Jr in a gruelling war at the Manchester Arena.
As far as his own WBSS semi-final is concerned, Smith commented, "I am very confident that I will beat Juergen Braehmer next Saturday in Nuremberg". I've boxed on with cuts, broken jaws, everything.
Groves' career has previously been remembered for high-profile defeats - two to Carl Froch and one each to Badou Jack and James DeGale - but he proved too shrewd and too accomplished for bookies favourite Eubank Jr at the Manchester Arena.
Skinner won the National ABA championship class C 54kg female title in 2013 -- less than a year after taking up the sport -- but was on the wrong end of a 39-38 verdict against Hungary's Gabriella Mezei from referee Mark Lyson.
"I thought I pressured him the entire fight", Eubank said in the ring afterwards.

Eubank Jr. somehow felt it was close, but make no mistake he did not fight his fight. I wanted it most. I'd already hurt him before the cut.
Groves, 29, caught Eubank with single jabs towards the end of the first round and had more success in the second with a counter left hand.
Eubank was cut above the right eye in the third round from an apparent accidental clash of heads, and it bothered him for the rest of the fight. "Eubank's weakness might be his boxing ability at distance, where I feel Groves is the better man".
Eubank landed the bigger shots in the ninth, including a straight right that landed flush with Groves penned against the ropes.
Eubank touched down at one point, but it was not ruled a knockdown. Eubank, noticing Groves' arm hanging limp, launched a furious assault.
It's hard to say for sure when Groves and Eubank Jr will enter the ring, but as a rough guidance, it's unlikely to be before 10pm, so there's plenty of time to sink a few Saturday night beers in the build-up. Walsh finished strongly, but had to be content with a draw to retain his title after scores of 115-114 (Lowe), 116-114 (Walsh) and 115-115.
