Veteran trainer Dave Coldwell ate a bit of crow with last Saturday's outcome in the semi-final bout in the World Boxing Super Series super middleweight tournament.
WBA super middleweight champion George Groves won a twelve round unanimous decision by outboxing Chris Eubank Jr. at the Manchester Arena.
Coldwell, who picked Eubank to win, is still shaking his head at the inner-workings of Eubank's team and the lack of proper preparation for the fight with Groves. There was also a lack of direction in Eubank's corner.
Eubank Jr. gets most of his training and in-ring advise from his famous father, former world champion Chris Eubank Sr.
But Coldwell strongly believes that Eubank Sr. is hurting his son, and not helping, by being more of a cheerleader than a trainer.
"You either his trainer or his cheerleader," Coldwell told told Metro.co.uk. "All Eubank Sr has been is a cheerleader. Telling Jr he was going to beat [Gennady] Golovkin, he was better than Floyd Mayweather. While at the same time, being disparaging of other people. He’s reaping what he sowed.
"Before the fight I actually said I thought Eubank was going to win the fight and I took a lot of stick. The basis I was going on was I thought George Groves didn’t have the legs anymore and his jab, although it looked heavy, it didn’t look as fast or as active.
"I said he needed those two things, the legs and the jab, to win the fight. But he had the legs, and the jab, so he controlled the pace and the distance and he won the fight quite easily. Although George was fantastic and phenomenal, what made it worse was Eubank was that bad."
In the opinion of Coldwell, the best trainer that Eubank Jr. had was Adam Booth - and Coldwell says that's exactly who he needs right now.
The relationship between Eubank Jr. and Booth did not last very long, because the boxer would not listen to instructions and Eubank Sr. was always meddling in his son's training.
"I thought he would have learned from the Billy Joe Saunders fight on how to close someone down a bit better, but he was even worse. He’s not listening to his trainers, he needs a real trainer," Coldwell said.
"I think he had the best coach for him, he had Adam Booth. But Eubank wrecked it by being unable to work together, not listening, wanting to do it his way and the old man wanting to dictate things. If I was Eubank Jr I would take my cap off and go and beg Adam Booth to take me back."
