George Groves and Chris Eubank Jr. entertained fans at a public workout on Tuesday ahead of their World Boxing Super Series semi-final which takes place at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England, on Saturday.

Groves will put his WBA super middleweight title on the line against Eubank, with the winner facing Callum Smith or former light heavyweight titleholder Juergen Braehmer in the tournament final.

“I am not for one second taking (Eubank) lightly,” said Groves, who is rated No. 2 by THE RING at 168 pounds. “Junior definitely has a good engine but, as soon as I hit him, I am going to hurt him and put him away.”

Eubank Jr., who is rated No. 4 by THE RING at super middleweight, sees a very different result in what is unquestionably the biggest fight of his career to date.

“I have dreamed of being part of such a big fight since I started boxing,” said the challenger. “Groves will not last 12 rounds. He should enjoy the last days with that WBA belt because I’m going to take it and proceed to the final.”

    I cant see george winning with that suspect chin of his

    • Lan Nim

      Groves has only been knocked out once in 29 fights, and it was the mother of all punches for Froch 2. The first fight stoppage was premature. How is his chin “suspect”? Jnr has the handspeed and workrate for sure, but his punching power isn’t anything special, has a pop, yes, but legitimate power at SMW? Questionable.

    Should be a cracking fight though, both come to fight and a bit of grudge included. I favour Eubank jr by late stoppage, might even put a cheeky bet on 10th round!
