As the World Boxing Super Series marches on to its super middleweight semi-finals (with George Groves vs. Chris Eubank Jr. and Callum Smith vs. Juergen Braehmer on deck), tournament organizer Kalle Sauerland has some ideas on where the fights should take place.

"For Groves v Eubank Jr. we are looking to hold the fight in London or Manchester," Sauerland exclusively told World Boxing News.

When pressed for more details Sauerland admitted that the O2 and Manchester Arena are his top two choices for Groves-Eubank while he’d like to see Smith-Braehmer head to the Echo Arena in Liverpool or Germany.

The options on the table are pretty obvious choices for these fights, as both Groves and Eubank are British fighters while Braehmer could likely get some pull in his native Germany. Quite frankly, I think it’s a safe bet to say that none of us truly care where these fights happen, we just want to see them happen.

But just in case I’m wrong, why don’t you tell me where you think these fights belong.
