Groves, 30, lost his world title to fellow Briton Callum Smith in the World Boxing Super Series final in September.
It was his 32nd bout in an 11-year professional career and in announcing his retirement Groves said he "knew the desire to fight had left" him.
He said: "I don't want there to be a time where I'm 'too old' to box, or where injury retires me."
In a statement, Groves offered "a prayer" for Eduard Gutknecht, who suffered a brain aneurysm after their fight in 2016, leaving him unable to walk or talk.
"This fight brought home the realisation that boxing can have brutal consequences," Groves added. "After this, I truly felt like my fighting days were numbered. After winning the WBA world title I decided to only continue fighting while it felt necessary."
