Eubank on Groves: This is NOT 50-50, I Have Every Advantage!

IBO super middleweight world champion Chris Eubank Jr. is less than a week away from his grudge match unification with WBA world champion George Groves.

The contest takes place on February 17th at the Manchester Arena - as a semi-final fight in the World Boxing Super Series super middleweight tournament.

They have sparred with each other on several occasions, with both boxers claiming to have had the edge in their gym encounters.

The two have traded words for some time, with the rivalry at a clear high since the showdown was announced.

“This is a fight that the public have been demanding for years now, between me and George. It’s a grudge match and we are legitimate rivals. It’s going to be explosive, it’s going to be no holds barred, exciting, fanatic and everything you could want in a super-fight," Eubank told WS County Times.

“I know that because of our styles, we are both exciting and offensive fighters we like to throw our hands, we are not afraid to get into a brawl and get stuck in."

A lot of experts are calling this a very close, 50-50 encounter, with persuasive arguments being made for both.

Eubank does not view this as a close fight. He expects a complete domination from start to finish - with a knockout ending.

“I believe I have every advantage possible over George Groves coming into this fight, mentally, physically, spiritually, every aspect of boxing I believe I can outperform him.”

“It’s not a 50-50 fight but I’m happy that a lot of the general public believe that it is a 50-50 fight because it makes the occasion much more exciting. I like the fact that people genuinely believe that I can’t win, because when I do do it, and I stop this guy and take his belt and bring it back to Brighton it makes the achievement all the more amazing.”

[QUOTE=Mindgames;18481528]In fact, apart from a shot slow Abraham, there's not a single good puncher he's faced on he's record. He's somehow inherited tree reputation of he's dad's chin.[/QUOTE] True but he’s also walked into and shrugged off a few shots…

[QUOTE=GlassJoey;18481033]I think he might have the better chin but Groves has taken loads of big hits and only hit the deck against 2 elite opponents. Eubank has been completely unfazed by the shots he has taken but they weren’t from…

[QUOTE=ArturoBalboa;18480668]The only thing stopping him using the weight as an excuse when he loses will be that it would force him to go back to middleweight, where he knows every decent fighter in the division kicks his ar5e.[/QUOTE] He'll go…
