WBSS Pre-Fight: George Groves vs Chris Eubank Jr.

The World Boxing Super Series releases it’s promotional video for the big upcoming fight between George Groves and Chris Eubank Jr.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

It’s just about that time! The World Boxing Super Series keeps it’s promotional train rolling as super middleweights George Groves and Chris Eubank Jr. get set to square off in a semifinals round next weekend in Manchester, England.

In this installment of the Road to London, we get a close look at both fighters as they head into the huge, highly anticipated match-up.

Eubank Jr. (26-1, 20 KOs) begins by talking about how he made a statement in his opening quarterfinals match against Avni Yildirim, knocking him out in three rounds.

“People, after that fight, I turned many haters, doubters, naysayers into believers,’ Eubank Jr. said. “So that was a big thing for me going into this first fight and making a statement. And not only a statement to the boxing public and the people that maybe doubt my abilities, but to the rest of the fighters in the tournament. I wanted them to understand that I’m the guy and I’m coming for everybody exactly the same way that I came for Avni Yildirim.”

We then get to see Eubank Jr. take spend some quality family time where his father, Chris Eubank Sr., was inexplicably wearing a police badge on the lapel of his blazer...Don’t ask.

Shortly thereafter we visit WBA champion George Groves (27-3, 20 KOs) in training camp.

“Right now I couldn’t be in a better place, I feel” Groves began. “I’m safe, I’m secure, I’m happy, I’m winning. You know, what more could I possibly ask for. I’m in a situation where, you know, I’m in this tournament and my life can change forever in a positive way, and that’s exciting for me...”

Both fighters then take a look at the tape from each other’s quarterfinals match and break down what they see in their opponent.
