Eubank Jr Eyeing Second World Title Against Groves

IBO super-middleweight World Champion Chris Eubank Jr faces George Groves in the World Boxing Super Series semi-final in Manchester tomorrow evening.

Victory for the Brighton-born boxer this evening would see him claim Groves' WBA super-middleweight belt and a place in the final of the tournament, facing the winner of the other Semi-final between Britain's Callum Smith and Germany's Jurgen Brahmer.

The 28-year old sealed his spot in the final four with a decisive 3rd round knockout victory over Turkiey's Avni Yildirim in Stuttgart in October last year, taking his professional record to 26-1.

He goes into the fight at the Manchester Arena as the underdog against the more experienced Groves, who has held the WBA title since May 2017 and has a record of 27-3 in his 30 professional bouts.

Eubank Jr has held the IBO belt for just over a year, defeating Australian Renold Quinlan by Technical Knockout in the 10th round of their fight at Wembley Arena in early February 2017.

Speaking ahead of their much-anticipated clash, Eubank Jr is confident that his opponent won't be adding a second loss to his record.

"There is nothing that George can do to stop me. Absolutely nothing.

"People are talking about his jab and his weight. These are small factors in boxing."
