Groves (27-3, 20 KOs) knocked out defending champion Fedor Chudinov in the sixth round to capture the World Boxing Association (WBA) super middleweight title last May. He knocked out previously undefeated Jaime Cox in the fourth round of the WBSS quarterfinals.
 
"I am not for one second taking him lightly," Groves said. "Junior definitely has a good engine but as soon as I hit him, I am going to hurt him and put him away. I have been involved in big fights before and I've learned a lot along the way. This is a tremendous fight but it's not my biggest fight to date. I'm in the best shape I've ever been in through my career. I'm fully prepared to go out there and retain my world title in style.

"It's not an expression that I particularly like but it comes down to levels and I'm levels above Junior. I've sacrificed a lot and I've been through some terrible times to get here. Desire is one thing I've always had in abundance. I've picked myself up from the lowest points and now I'm at the top and enjoying it. I won't be taking my eye off the ball. I'm the number one seed and I will go on to win this tournament and win it well. I started last year and will continue this week. I'm ready and hopefully, he is too."
 
Eubank Jr. captured his International Boxing Organization (IBO) super middleweight world title a year ago, when he knocked out Renold Quinlan in the 10th round. He stopped Avni Yildirim (16-0) in the third round of the WBSS quarterfinal round.

Like Groves said it's all about levels. As for Junior when the son of a famous boxer tries to emulate his fathers success they usually fail miserably.

[QUOTE=One Of A Kind;18494485]That's kinda unfair to Groves[/QUOTE] Hes decent, not elite at all though. Basic jab and right hand. Canelo would beat the brakes off him.
