Although more of the general public are piling in on Groves, it's Eubank Jr who is attracting the bigger stakes.

Eubank Jr was not knocked down, though Groves was frustrated there was no count when his opponent fell to his knee in the 10th round and the cut he sustained may have forced him to try and change the fight's course with a wilder approach.

"He didn't bring pressure because I was hurting him".

The Groves jab is one of the best in the business so expect him to deploy that at the first opportunity as he looks to hold off the aggressive power of Eubank Jr, with the right hand the power punch in the arsenal of the Hammersmith fighter.

"He walked in with his shades on, he doesn't want to be here, he wants to get put into retirement so that's what we're going to do on Saturday night, I'm taking that belt home". George ain't ready, I can see it in his eyes.

There was to be no knockout however, with Groves claiming the victory on points (117-112, 116-112, 115-113) after the fight went the distance in Manchester.

Where Can I Watch The Fight?


The fight itself is the semi-final of the World Boxing Super Series but there is so much more than that on the line.

Groves, the defending WBA 168-pound "super" champion successfully defended his title and advanced to the championship round of the WBSS super middleweight tournament with a unanimous decision.

"This is the biggest fight of my career", Eubank Jr said.

This was one of the most highly-anticipated domestic bouts for years and though it was not one for the purists, it was, at times, bloody and brutal.

So when you hear Prince Naz say that Eubank needs to retire or fight him, know that "Prince" thinks he can win that fight.

Groves, the top seed, improved to 28-3 with his seventh straight win.
