Groves Beats Eubank Jr., Defends WBA Super Middleweight Title

Chris Eubank Jr believes defeat today would end George Groves' career

George Groves produced one of the finest displays of his career to advance to the World Boxing Super Series super middleweight final by beating fellow Briton Chris Eubank Jr on a unanimous points decision. The three judges all scored the fight in favour of Groves, scoring it 117 points to 112, 116 to 112 and 115 to 113.

He may now have to delay his appearance in the World Boxing Super Series final against either Callum Smith or Jurgen Braehmer, who meet next weekend.

While Eubank Jr knocked out Avni Yildirim in the third in Stuttgart.

The tournament's No 1 seed showed his size, experience and skill, controlling the pace from the start and dealing with nearly everything Eubank Jr threw at him, even in a frenetic finish that saw Groves dislocate his shoulder.

Mikaela will return to compete in the Ladies' Downhill even on February 21, as well as the Ladies' Alpine Combined on February 23. I know, because I counted each and every one of them. "I nearly felt like it was a virus, but now I'm pretty sure it wasn't".

Though WBA champion Groves is just 18 months older than Eubank Jr, his career has included more high-profile bruising fights against the likes of James DeGale and Badou Jack as well two bouts with Carl Froch, including one at Wembley.

Groves' WBA super-middleweight title will be on the line.

"I couldn't see out of my right eye for pretty much most of the fight", Eubank Jr revealed.

"Did I underestimate him?"

Then there was also the failed trade, which would have sent McCarron to Cleveland past year . "That's just being a competitor". The team put him on that list again on August 30, 2014, which meant he would miss at least the first six games of the season.

The intensity increased in the ninth, Groves often against the ropes but Eubank Jr's shots becoming wilder, and everyone, including him, knew he was going to need something special to live up to his own predictions.

Groves, 29, caught Eubank with single jabs towards the end of the first round and had more success in the second with a counter left hand. I've boxed on with cuts, broken jaws, everything. A curt, clinical counter hook seemed to put Eubank Jr down, only for referee Michael Alexander ruling out a knockdown. Here, I wasn't going to let any injury get me out.

"I don't think of retirement, retirement is not a word that even comes into my mind.

Chris Eubank didn't bring the pressure he said he would", Groves said. But Groves said: "There's no rhyme or reason - it must be people putting money on Eubank but, sadly, they're going to lose it".
