Groves proved what i felt all along, clearly the superior boxer and the big hype that is Eubank gets turned over by a fundamentally sound boxer again. He had no answer for the jab and swung for the fences like an amateur.

Stream kept cutting out, so only saw parts of it, but that wasn't great at all. Groves fought the smart, disciplined fight but he's no way looked uber classy. Eubank was just wild, embarrassingly so frequently, and was all or nothing throughout. He's got to completely rethink it or should move back down I think where he will be more dangerous with his approach.

Have to say though that it's another fight in recent times that's had a clash of heads & cut impact it early on.... Seems to be happening a lot lately.

Levels. Eubank did all he could and got outclassed. That’s it basically

Overhyped and Groves underrated for this one.

Eubank just cannot deal with fighters who don’t stand in front of him and allow him to work. He’s a good fighter, but his best work will always be in the gym against overmatched sparring partners or punch bags. Soooooo much more to the noble art than that as Groves showed tonight. George was comfortable throughout really, close to a complete shutout.

“What camera do i have to look in to tell Jr to end it”

Naz has always been a character but that was something else.

Did anyone see the interview outside of Jr’s dressing room before the fight with Eubank sr? At the end of the interview the interviewer said “thanks Chris Thenior...senior.” Dunno whether it was a freudian or intentional.
