GEORGE GROVES vs CHRIS EUBANK JR. BETTING PREVIEW
George Groves (27-3, 20 KOs) finally became a world champion with his TKO of Fedor Chudinov last May. He progressed through to the semi-finals after a fourth round stoppage of Jamie Cox back in October, courtesy of a heavy body shot. He is most well known for his two blockbuster bouts against Carl Froch in November 2013 and May 2014, and he also went down to Badou Jack in Las Vegas in 2015. Since then, he has now won six consecutive fights under the new coach Shane McGuigan.
Groves has a tendency to tire and slowdown in the second half of the fight and this could be a massive problem against a talented and extremely fit Eubank Jr, who is able to work at a ferocious pace for 12 rounds. He has never been defensively blessed, but offensively Groves possesses many fine qualities as a fighter. Furthermore, Groves is arguably the smarter boxer and the most experienced.

50/1 Eubank Jr. to win!
T&Cs apply, 18+
Chris Eubank Jr (26-1, 20 KOs) has previously fought at middleweight, where current WBO champ Billy Joe Saunders handed him his only professional defeat. Since then, Eubank Jr has embarked on an eight-fight win streak that has propelled him up the super-middleweight ladder. He enters this bout high on confidence, after a third round annihilation of Yildirim in Stuttgart to book his place into the semifinals.
Eubank is a ferocious puncher, and although he is a natural middleweight, he still hits extremely hard at super middle. The Brighton warrior is athletically gifted and with experience is getting better and better with each fight. Eubank is the younger, fitter, more powerful fighter but he has not stepped into a ring with anyone possessing the punching power of Groves.
