Not only will both the WBA Super and IBO World super-middleweight titles be up for grabs when these warriors step into the ring at the Manchester Arena, but the winner of this hugely anticipated bout will also make it through to the super-middleweight final of the World Boxing Super Series.

Not sure what the World Boxing Super Series is all about? No problem. Dubbed “the Champions League of boxing”, this knockout-style tournament started in September 2017, features two weight categories – super-middleweight and cruiserweight – and will crown its inaugural champions in May.
 

George Groves and Chris Eubank Jr


Bidding to reach the final is WBA Super World super-middleweight champion Groves, who made light work of Jamie Cox in the last round of the competition by knocking out his fellow Brit inside four rounds. But this time the man who so nearly pulled off a stunning upset against Carl Froch at this same venue in 2013 is facing a completely different challenge in Eubank Jr.

 

With just one loss so far in his career, Eubank Jr is full of confidence after securing a third-round knockout against Turkey’s Avni Yildirim in the quarter-finals. It was a potentially tough fight for the son of one of the UK’s most famous pugilists, but the ferocious 28-year-old ended up waltzing to victory with an explosive performance that provided plenty of shock and awe.
