Eubank: I'll Fully Dominate Groves, Take Him Out Between 6 and 8

IBO super middleweight world champion Chris Eubank Jr. is very confident that he's going to do a real job on George Groves, the WBA's world champion, when they collide on February 17th at the Manchester Arena.

Eubank vs. Groves will be a semi-final fight in the World Boxing Super Series super middleweight tournament.

Groves has been very critical of Eubank's behavior in the lead-up to the fight, stating that the second generation fighter is using "gimmicks" to build a false image about himself.

The winner of the fight will face the winner of the semi-final fight between Juergen Braehmer and Callum Smith.

Eubank has promised to batter Groves from round to round and then finally close the show in the early portion of the second half of the contest.

He views this contest as the defining fight to take him out of the shadow of his famous fighter, Chris Eubank Sr.

"I expect to be fully dominant and take him out between six and eight rounds," Eubank Jr, 28, told BBC Radio 5 live.

"You'll see things he's said leading up to the fight are all a front. On 17 February the world's most dangerous gimmick is coming for George Groves. I have trained for this fight my whole life. People have been asking how my camp has been going but I haven't had one. Instead, I have worked for this since I was 14 years old. Time to become my own man."

Eubank has a very high opinion of himself. He views himself as the best piece of talent in the entire sport and feels the time has finally come to prove it.

"My ultimate goal is to create my own legacy and to stamp my own name into world boxing," added Eubank Jr.

"I believe I have made a great start. This is the type of fight where I can solidify my position in the sport of boxing.

"This is my time now to become my own man, to step out of my father's shadow and prove to everyone I am the best fighter on the planet."

In either case, they're both annoying and ridiculous loud mouths. At least one of them will finally shut their trap.

[QUOTE=hugh grant;18479541]Eubank snr took benns power. I doubt groves hits as hard as benn[/QUOTE] F**k does that have to do with anything?

Punching g power isn't any good if you can't land with regularity. Brook could take GGG punches as could nelo. Eubank spoars with cruiserweight so I don't think groves punch power is anything to worry about. Eubank snr took benns…

[QUOTE=EnglishOxide;18478299]I have watched him for his whole career, and stoppages are stoppages. It's still an accumulation of power. It seems to only be Eubank that is degraded for not knocking everybody cold (what happened in his last fight, against someone…
