FORMER WBO world middleweight champion Andy Lee has sparred George Groves more times than he cares to remember and has watched George Groves spar Chris Eubank Jr enough to have a fair idea of what will happen when the super-middleweights clash on Saturday (February 17) in Manchester.

That said, despite this insight, this first-hand experience, Lee, such is the nature of boxing, cannot possibly be sure of the result. He has seen how both boxers react when in the ring together and he has felt the power and speed of Groves on countless occasions. But that doesn’t mean the 33-year-old can see into the future, nor say for certain how either man will perform on the night.

He has an idea, though.
