Groves vs Eubank Jr Boxing Fight

Groves vs Eubank JR boxing fight

Joseph Holt is thrilled to bring you the sold-out Ali trophy semi-final bout between WBA Super World Champion George Groves (27-3, 20 KO’s) and IBO-Champion Chris Eubank Jr (26-1, 20 KO’s). The event will be shown live at our selected sports pubs on Saturday 17th February 2018 from 7 pm in what is being billed as the biggest Super Middleweight clash in years.

A lot is at stake as both fight for a place in the final of the inaugural World Boxing Super Series - dubbed the Champions League of boxing. Groves will also defend his WBA (Super) title, while Eubank Jr will be putting his IBO belt on the line.

Eubank Jr stated "I’ve had many big fights but this is the biggest in terms of profile and the tournament and the hype. But at the end of the day, I always rise to the occasion. The bigger the fight the better I perform. I’m a man of my word and I can promise George will not see the end of the 12th round."

Groves added "I think the form, the history, the experience, the ability all lie in my favour and I’m looking forward to a big night in Manchester. It’s a semi-final in a tournament I expect to win so Eubank Jr is just a stepping stone, another step for me on the way to the Muhammad Ali Trophy.
