A great night of British Boxing is on the way on Saturday as George Groves takes on Chris Eubank Jr in the Boxing Super Series semi-finals. The tournament started with eight boxers in a straightforward knockout (no pun intended) format, with winners of fights getting through to the next round.
This is the super middleweight division and after knocking out Jamie Cox in his quarter-final duel, Groves moves on to face what could easily have been the final of the competition if he and Eubank Jr had been in separate halves of the draw. Instead ‘Saint George’ will face his toughest competitor in Manchester on Saturday night as he takes on Eubank Jr in the final four.
Eubank Jr was the outright favourite to win the super middleweight division of the Boxing Super Series and the winner of this fight will go on to face the winner of Callum Smith vs Juergen Braehmer in the final of the bracket. The winner of the tournament will not only get the title but will hold the WBA world title as well.
Eubank Jr carries a 25-1 career record into the bout and the current IBO World Champion is on an eight-match winning streak having easily beaten Avni Yildirim in the quarter finals of the Super Series back in October last year. To be fair though, since his defeat to Billy Joe Saunders in November 2014 has faced no-one of any particularly high standard. Still, he has bulldozed his way past everyone that has come his way and he has the deadliest punch of the final four.
In contrast, throughout his career, Groves has put himself on the line in big fights against the likes of James DeGale, Badou Jack and Carl Froch, not always having had the risk pay off. Groves’ record is 27-3 and two of those defeats were against Froch, the other against Jack. Still, Groves has won his last six fights, four of them by a knockout, so he is in pretty decent form. Can he step it up as underdog to take down Eubank Jr though?
