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.
