Super middleweight contender Callum Smith is still in the dark on his upcoming opponents in the final round of the World Boxing Super Series tournament.
Smith was set to face WBA world champion George Groves, who defeated Chris Eubank Jr. to reach the final round.
However, Groves dislocated his shoulder in the February bout with Eubank - and that's now jeopardizing his spot in the WBSS tournament final.
In a twist, the WBSS is considering Eubank Jr. as a frontrunner to replace Groves in the tournament final.
The main issue the WBSS have, is finishing up the 168 tournament before their three new tourneys are set to debut in the fall.
Smith vs. Groves was targeted for late June.
"I was told June 2, then I was told June 29, and I was hearing if Groves wasn't ready, it was going to be Eubank Jr," Smith exclusively told Sky Sports.
"I'm hearing now maybe there is a chance it could go back to August-September. I'm in training and I've got to expect the unexpected. If they turn around and say it's Groves or Eubank Jr on June 29, then I've got to go with that date."
Smith has no issue with facing anyone in the tournament final, but he would much rather face Groves - and not the man who was defeated by Groves.
Groves is the number one seed in the tournament.
Smith also wants to prove his level, as he was given an easier than expected door to enter the finals.
In order to get to the final bout, he defeated a very late replacement in Nieky Holzken. Smith was set to face former world champion Juergen Braehmer, who withdrew a few days before the fight with an illness.
"It was all over social media that Eubank Jr was stepping in, it was official and stuff, and it was never official. Nothing had been confirmed to us. Then I was hearing maybe there's a chance they could put it back for Groves, which is what I want," Smith said.
"I've said I would rather wait and fight Groves. He's got the world title, which is what I entered the tournament for. It's what I've wanted since turning pro and it seems to be running away from me. I will catch it someday. I feel like I would get more credit, more reward, more everything for beating George Groves, then I would Chris Eubank Jr.
"I would rather wait one, two, three months to fight George Groves," said the unbeaten 28-year-old. He is the main reason I entered this tournament. There's a lot of other reasons, but the main reason was to win a world title."
