CHRIS EUBANK rose to his feet to defend family honour when George Groves lit the fuse for his super-middleweight clash with Chris Eubank Jr by questioning his opponent’s pedigree.

Tickets for the World Boxing Super Series semi-final at the Manchester Arena on February 17 sold out in seven minutes and the domestic rivals exchanged verbal blows at a press conference in central London on Tuesday.

Groves, the WBA world champion, taunted British great Eubank and his son by claiming the fight will be a turning point in their relationship and also mocked Jr’s social media profile.
