George Groves Baits Eubank Jr: I Would Have Beaten Your Dad!

GEORGE GROVES has stepped up his war of words with Chris Eubank Jnr by insisting he would have beaten up his dad in his heyday.
Groves finally faces Eubank at the Manchester Arena on Saturday in the World Boxing Super Series semi-final after months of verbal sparring.

Now the WBA super middleweight champion has taken aim at his famous father.

Eubank Sr won world titles at two different weights and is considered one of Britain’s best ever after a career which ended in 1998 after 52 fights and 45 wins.

But Groves says the eccentric former champ was lucky he was not around in those days.

“I haven’t seen much of his career, but I’m sure I would have beaten him,” said Groves, who has lost three of his 30 fights to date.

“He had enough losses on his record and I don’t fall for his bulls**t.

“Back then, a lot of people got annoyed by his gimmicks and fought with emotion. I wouldn’t do that.

“He was about posturing, being heavy-handed. He probably wasn’t much of a trainer.

“It was a different era. Maybe he wouldn’t have survived in this era, maybe he would have got beat.

“Maybe people would have seen through him because in this era, you have to step up."

Groves has also vowed to leave Eubank unemployed by beating his son, who holds the IBO crown, at the Manchester Arena.

He added: “I think it is quite clear what will happen once I win. I believe he will sack his dad and move back down to middleweight.”

[QUOTE=revelated;18491334]Okay, then by that logic, Mike Tyson's a bum because the first time he went up in class against Quick Tillis, he went the distance. Against a straight up journeyman. And Tyson's textbook punch slipping against Reggie Gross meant nothing…

[QUOTE=Johnston;18491327]If some fighter loses to Cletus seldon and another loses to Errol Spence, I'll take less away from the guy who lost to Spence vs the guy who lost to seldon. Your argument is extremely weak and I don't know…

[QUOTE=revelated;18491322]Manny LOST! That's the point being made here. You're showing your bias. "This fighter only fought bums but was on a knockout streak but who cares about their skill?" "This fighter lost to good fighters so it doesn't matter that…
