GEORGIE Groves' prize for storming to the Commonwealth Super-middleweight title on Saturday was an 18in tall bunny rabbit.
However, the Hammersmith hammer was hopping mad when he discovered girlfriend Sophie threatened to lay into Flopsy and take a chunk out of him before Groves got his turn.
Of course, the rabbit was chocolate and Groves feared looking in the fridge this week and seeing nothing but a tail and two ears staring back at him.
He said: "Sophie warned me, and I wouldn't mind, but having denied myself in training for all these weeks - I'm rather partial to a bit of chocolate."
The 22-year-old's solace was the best win of his career at the MEN Arena on the undercard of manager David Haye's defence of his own world title.
A star-studded performance by Groves was underlined by the three counts he dished out to defending champion Charles Adamu before the referee called a halt to the onesided contest in the sixth.
But the new champion revealed waiting around to take the British belt is by no means a given.
Groves said: "Of course I would like it, because of all the history that's attached to the belt.
"I should be given a go against (current holder) Paul Smith - but he's now talking about a tilt at the European title - and there's other stuff out there if it isn't Smith."
Although Robert Diaz from Oscar de la Hoya's Golden Boy Productions warmed to the idea of taking the west Londoner stateside for a lucrative pay day, as a result of
Saturday's show, Groves reckoned taking the US by storm can wait.
He added: "I need to build my fanbase at home. But somewhere down the line, maybe the likes of WBA champion Andre Ward might be on for a showdown in the States."
