The current super-middleweight world champions both trained as amateurs at Dale Youth ABC which is housed in the lower floors of the tower.

"My thoughts are with everyone affected."
Meanwhile, current WBA titleholder Groves also spoke of his sadness after news of the fire broke overnight.
"Prayers are with the residents of Grenfell Towers. Dale Youth ABC has been [there] the past 15 years. I was there Sunday. So sad," he said.
Groves also shared a post on Instagram detailing help centres for those affected by the incident: "If you can help. Lots of people already have. So sad."
