George Groves defeated fellow Brit Chris Eubank Jr in the semi-final of the World Boxing Super Series at the Manchester Arena.

Groves' win in the semi-final of the World Boxing Super Series means he will take on the winner of Callum Smith v Jurgen Braemer later in the year.

The IBO and WBA super-middleweight champion controlled the match from the off, and saw Eubank Jr endure a cut to the eye after a clash of heads in the third round.

While Eubank Jr struggled to get close to Groves' body to do damage, Groves was able to keep his opponent at bay with a relentless and effective jab.

Groves was clearly ahead after a few rounds, and so Eubank Jr became increasingly desperate to land a KO as the bout wore on. A late flurry of activity was not enough, and Groves took the match by a unanimous points decision.

PEOPLe should look at the Bummelo vs Triple Gee compubox to learn what non timid punches are about. Groves played it cool defending straps by just hanging 12 rounds swinging defensive arms while Eubank Jr. popped the best leaping hooks.
