Frank Warren Tabs Groves To Beat Eubank, Explains Why

by Frank Warren, courtesy of The Daily Star

GEORGE GROVES should have the edge over Chris Eubank Jnr.

This is an intriguing clash but I’m leaning towards the WBA super-middleweight champion holding on to his title and booking a place in the World Boxing Super Series final.

It comes down to both boxers’ experience for me and you look at who has the best record so far.

The only name of any note Eubank has on his CV is Billy Joe Saunders and he came up short in that fight.

Groves has been in with some of the best in the super-middleweight division including James DeGale, Carl Froch and Badou Jack.

He has not always come out on top but he has beaten better names than his opponent tonight has.

Another reason I believe Groves will win is the fact he will have been trained by a proper coach for this fight.

No fighter can train himself.

Eubank likes to think he can do it all on his own but that just doesn’t work at the elite level of the sport – I don’t care who you are or how good you think you are.

You need a trainer with authority guiding you, pointing out the mistakes you’re making and also in the corner giving you valuable tactical advice.

“Eubank likes to think he can do it all on his own but that just doesn’t work at the elite level of the sport”

Another key element will be the Groves jab and that can win him the fight as it will put him in control.

Eubank has a high work rate that may give Groves some trouble but he is not a concussive puncher, despite stopping Avni Yildirim in his quarter-final.

He also gets caught a lot because his defence is not the best. He has a big heart, but not a good defence which gives Groves another advantage.

Don’t forget that the Londoner also insisted that Eubank was in his half of the draw for this eight-man tournament.

So he must fancy beating him unless he has got it completely wrong.

Meanwhile, we have added WBO bantamweight champion Zolani Tete to the undercard of Carl Frampton against Nonito Donaire in Belfast on April 21.

So while Belfast boy Ryan Burnett defends his WBA belt in Cardiff instead of a unification with Tete, the South African will be in the Ulster man’s hometown to show the locals who he believes the best bantamweight is.

[QUOTE=TheUntouchable;18492377]Everybody with basic boxing knowledge should know. Many let their feelings blind them, though.

[QUOTE=ashadam;18492311]Frank has no credibility saying that Eubank is looking awesome will be a good fight though, for me Groves looks shook.[/QUOTE] Groves proves you wrong
