George Groves dominates Chris Eubank Jr

I'll force Groves into early retirement, vows Eubank Jr

George Groves celebrated retaining the WBA world super-middleweight title with his arm in a sling after suffering a suspected dislocated shoulder in the last round of his bruising encounter with fellow Briton Chris Eubank Jr.

Today's bout also represents the semi-final of the World Boxing Super Series, meaning the victor gets a date against either Callum Smith or Jurgen Braehmer come May.

Groves vs Eubank Jr.

The Brighton-based boxer continued to let fly and Groves proved too clever, bypassing one hook as Eubank Jr fell into the ropes.

Groves puts his WBA Super world title on the line at Manchester Arena, exclusively live on ITV Box Office, against the man who holds the lightly-regarded IBO crown.

"He didn't lie when he said he would grit it out", Groves told ITV Box Office. He cut me, and I couldn't see.

Eubank - the son of former two-weight world champion Chris Eubank - certainly appears to have inherited his father's granite chin as he stood up to clean shots from throughout against Groves, having been hindered by a cut eye caused in a third-round clash of heads.

"The way he boxed and tied him up just with the right hand and stole time was, for me, an heroic ending to the fight".

"He didn't bring pressure because I was hurting him". He wasn't dabbing at it so I don't think it was obscuring his vision.

Sebastian Eubank got his professional career off to a solid start with a points win. There was no towel going in, when you were so far up on points...well he should have been, I thought the scorecards were far too close. Obviously, against Carl Froch I didn't win.

SunSport will be live blogging George Groves vs Chris Eubank Jr this Saturday live from the Manchester Arena.

Although more of the general public are piling in on Groves, it's Eubank Jr who is attracting the bigger stakes.

It's hard to say for sure when Groves and Eubank Jr will enter the ring, but as a rough guidance, it's unlikely to be before 10pm, so there's plenty of time to sink a few Saturday night beers in the build-up.
