Groves vs Eubank Jr

Groves Eubank Live Stream

A slow start against Billy Joe Saunders in 2014 cost Eubank Jr badly and it seemed as though history was repeating itself in the first round.

Through two rounds, Groves was landing punches at a rate of three-to-one over Eubank and the son of former world champion Chris Eubank Sr was left frustrated, unable to get inside.

George Groves gave Chris Eubank Jr a masterclass in top-level championship boxing when he tamed him, controlled him and won a convincing unanimous points victory at the Manchester Arena last night.

"He didn't bring pressure because I was hurting him". He cut me, and I couldn't see.

"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".

"This is the biggest fight of my career".

I've been here, done this so many times now. George. we're on different levels, different planes; he's in a different stage of his life.

"The shoulder's pretty sore, but I wasn't going to let anything beat me tonight".

The trademark Eubank Jr swarm was shrugged off by Groves despite being trapped at the post, but he now had a taste of the speed and ferocity of his rival. I've got so much more to achieve in my career.

"He just wants to be loved really and I think he has lost his grip on reality".

Groves collected the WBA title with a victory over Fedor Chudinov in Sheffield a year ago but there was a true sense of validation surrounding this triumph on Saturday, at the same venue where Carl Froch inflicted a heartbreaking first career loss in November 2013.

Having elicited cheers from the crowd with an erratically errant shot, Eubank Jr somehow mustered more energy to unload on Groves and finally one of his right-hand bombs from range landed. "If he's dislocated his shoulder and can't go through into the final, I don't know whether that means I go through". Groves improves to 28 wins, 3 defeats, 20 knockouts, while Eubank reduces to 26 wins, 2 defeats, 20 knockouts.
