Groves v Eubank Jr set for Feb 17!

George 'The Saint' Groves will defend his WBA Super World title against fellow Brit Chris Eubank Jr at the Manchester Arena on February 17th in the semi-final of the inaugural World Boxing Super Series.

Both fighters impressed in their first outings in the competition with Eubank Jr travelling to Germany to defeat Turkey’s Avni Yildirim in early October, whilst Groves stopped previously unbeaten Jamie Cox inside four rounds at Wembley Arena a week later. 

The pair squared off in the ring following the Saint's victory and now the date of February 17th has been confirmed with Manchester playing host to the mouthwatering clash.

"He's never boxed anyone like me," said Groves about his former sparring partner.

"We've shared the ring enough times, he knows what I'm all about."

"I've been looking forward to this Eubank fight for a long time," said Groves.

"He's improved over the years but he hasn't boxed anyone on my level. He doesn't stand a chance.

Another Brit, Callum Smith, fights Germany's Jurgen Brahmer in the other semi-final, with the date and location yet to be decided.
