Grove turned pro in 1982 and in 1988 captured the IBF featherweight title with a TKO over Antonio Rivera. He defended the belt once before losing it to Jorge Páez later that same year. Grove was knocked down three times in the 15th round, a decisive factor in him losing the majority decision. In a rematch with Paez the following year Grove was TKO'd in the 11th. Grove later moved up in weight and in 1992 challenged WBC super featherweight title holder Azumah Nelson, but lost a decision. Grove later moved up in weight again, and in 1994 took on WBC lightweight title holder Miguel Ángel González, but lost via TKO. Grove retired in 1998 after losing via 1st-round KO to Kostya Tszyu.
