Groves: If I Box Like I Did With Cox - Then Eubank Has No Chance!

Last Saturday night in London, WBA super champion George Groves defeated fellow countryman Jamie Cox in the Ali Trophy quarter-final with a fourth-round knockout and paved the way for a British superfight semi-final with IBO world champion Chris Eubank Jr.

Groves ended Cox's unbeaten record Saturday night as he delivered a stunning right hook body shot to floor Cox.

"I was landing big body shots on Jamie, in the end it was a right hook to the body, it's a crippling shot - I don't blame him for not getting up,” said Groves now looking forward to fighting Eubank Jr," Groves said.


While the fight is being viewed as a 50-50 encounter, Groves believes he has a clear advantage to defeat Eubank.

The London boxer is not thinking about retirement, but he will explore his future after the tournament is over.

“I’m signed in for it and I’d like to win [the tournament],” Groves said. “I’ve got a minimum of two more fights [Eubank followed by a possible WBSS final in early summer], then we’ll see. I’m in great form. I’m enjoying my boxing. If I keep winning, then I’ll keep going. But the body’s responding well. I’m not taking big shots. No thoughts of retiring and I’m not counting down the days.

“I know if I box like I did [against Cox] - he’s got no chance. Eubank’s improved over the years but he hasn’t fought anyone at my level."

Cox worked furiously and fought with intensity from the first bell, but in the end he could not handle Groves’ greater power.

“He placed the shot greatly and he’s a very good champion. He prepared well, I made a mistake and he made me pay. It was a great fight until then,” said Cox.

"It was an honour being a part of this great tournament. He’s a got a very good boxing brain. I’ve never been hit to the body like that, never been put down by a body shot in my whole career."

Am I like the only one who thinks Eubank has been looking horrible? Seriously like his KO over that punching bag Yildrim was nice but who is Yildrim? Seriously I like a Eubank but I see almost all he does…

wat? while watching that fight i was thinking i hope he don't fight eubank this way because he will get knocked the F out. Dude was wild and open at times evident by the state of his face after.
