George Groves and Chris Eubank Jr. went nose to nose and eye to eye for a very last time at a tense weigh-in before their Ali Trophy semi-final Saturday at the Manchester Arena.

“I told him he's not ready, I can see it in his eyes ... ,“ said Eubank Jr. after weighing in at 76 kg in front of a packed crowd.

“George doesn't want to be here. I want this more than anything I've ever wanted. He doesn't realize the danger he's in. I am going to knock him out cold!”

Groves (75,8 kg), who is the underdog with the bookies, said:

“I'm excited, I made weight, I'm ready to go!”

“I'm in the prime of my career, fighting better than ever.”
