Groves vs Eubank Jr
World Boxing Super Series Semi-Final
As we get nearer to the mouth-watering clash between super middle-weight rivals George Groves (WBA Super-Middleweight World Chamption) and Chris Eubank Jr (IBO World Super-Middleweight Champion), who are you backing?
The Super-Middleweight semi-final in the World Boxing Super Series, Saturday 17th February at the MEN Arena Manchester, has the potential to be one of the fights of the year (and yes, the year still has a long way to go!).
I think the form, the history, the experience, the ability all lie in my favour and I’m looking forward to a big night in Manchester. It’s a semi-final in a tournament I expect to win so Eubank Jr. is just a stepping stone, another step for me on the way to the Muhammad Ali Trophy - George Groves
This is the fight for fight fans not to be missed. I’ve had many big fights but this is the biggest in terms of profile and the tournament and the hype. But at the end of the day I always rise to the occasion. The bigger the fight the better I perform.
I’m a man of my word and I can promise George will not see the end of the twelfth round - Chris Eubank Jr
Groves reached the semi-finals after a 4th round knockout win against Jamie Cox in the quarters. While Eubank Jr caused a brutal 3rd round knockout against Turkish opponent Avni Yildirim.
The boxing world is already split for this eagerly anticipated semi-final, with both boxers promising a stoppage win.
Who will the winner face in the final?
Callum Smith was through to the other semi-final with a unanimous points win over Erik Skoglund.
He will face Germany's Jurgen Brahmer the following week, with the winner through to the final against Groves or Eubank Jr.
