Twitter was surprised with Chris Eubank Jr's words after George Groves loss

The Argus

George Groves outboxed and outfought Chris Eubank to retain his WBA super middleweight world title and advanced to the final of the World Boxing Super Series tournament. But Eubank Jr starts as the slight favourite.

Groves showed his class, befuddling Eubank Jr. behind boxing at a smart distance and counterpunching throughout the majority of the bout.

Eubank Jr. promised to usher Groves into early retirement with a knockout, but in the end it was Eubank Jr. who may want to consider a different career path as he was outclassed over 12 rounds.

Asked what he uttered to Groves, Eubank Jr replied: "I told him he's not ready".

"He walked in with his shades on, he doesn't want to be here, he wants to get put into retirement so that's what we're going to do on Saturday night, I'm taking that belt home". I'd already hurt him before the cut. "I think the crowd wants to see another one, so we'll see what happens". He doesn't realise the danger he's in but he will find out on Saturday.

"The shoulder's pretty sore, but I wasn't going to let anything beat me tonight".

Indeed, the hate is real between the two if after all these years since they fought that Saunders had to instantly give him stick online as soon as the judge's decision came in tonight. "Chris Eubank didn't bring the pressure he said he would", Groves said.

His opponent George Groves is available at 6/4 to complete the biggest victory of his short, but esteemed career thus far. He wasn't dabbing at it so I don't think it was obscuring his vision. "If he's dislocated his shoulder and can't go through into the final, I don't know whether that means I go through".

Eubank Jr is available at 13/8 to win by KO, TKO or disqualification, whilst Groves can be found at 3/1 to win by the same methods.

He's been busy preparing for his big fight at the Manchester Arena on Saturday night, but Chris Eubank Junior took time out from his rigorous training schedule to catch up with some of the Manchester United players this week.
