Groves: As Soon as I Hit Eubank - I'll Hurt Him and Finish Him!

By Owen Fulda, courtesy of The Daily Star

GEORGE GROVES believes Chris Eubank Jr’s arrogance will be his downfall when the two fighters meet on Saturday night.
  
Groves will put his WBA 'world' super-middleweight title on the line at Manchester Arena against the 28-year-old.

Eubank Jr., who holds the IBO title, is the bookmakers’ favourite to emerge as the victor, a fact which surprised ‘The Saint’.

The challenger previously claimed that he has no need to formulate a game-plan with trainer Ronnie Davies to win the bout.

But Groves took the statement to mean that Eubank is not taking the fight seriously enough and will be out to teach him a lesson.

"It could be over-arrogance or it could just be naivety, him thinking he doesn't need anyone's help or will get to the very top without any help," Groves told Sky Sports.

"His plan is to get fit for every fight and he always is. Is he going to get fitter? Is that going to help?

“If he's fit to do 12 rounds, there's no point in getting fit for 15, is there?

"He's going to have to improve. Is he going to punch harder than he's done before?

“Legitimately there's only one thing he can do and that's get fitter.

"I am not for one second taking him lightly, because I don't think he has any quit in him.

“He might have a good chin, he definitely has a good engine but as soon as I hit him, I am going to hurt him and put him away.

"There is a massive difference in opposition we have both faced. He is going to have to make a huge step up."

Eubanks Jr knocked out Avni Yildirim in impressive fashion when they met in the World Boxing Super Series super-middleweight quarter-final last October.

Jamie Cox suffered the same fate at the hands of Groves in his quarter-final, albeit one round later.

If Groves has a weakness in chin, he's in against a guy with almost no power at world level. Eubank has no defence, terrible wooden feet and can't cope with boxing skills. This fight will look alot like the Murray…

[QUOTE=dan_cov;18485189]Rewatched Groves last few fights the other night, even vs Cox he looked terrible just looking to land the counter right. Short fight but I didn't realise Cox was in that on first watch until he lost his head. He's…
