“For me the cruiserweights have been quite exciting, they’ve been quite good. But if they all walked in this restaurant together, everyone would think it was four club doormen going to have a drink, no one would know who they are,” he said.
Although the event featured George Groves vs Chris Eubank Jr, he was more scathing about the super-middleweight WBSS. “Regarding the other fights. I’ll just say how it is, you knew that Groves-Eubank was going to be highly publicised but [Jamie] Cox against Groves, there was only going to be one winner. George asked for Eubank to be in his [draw], he knew he fancied that fight. Callum Smith fought the guy from Sweden [Erik Skoglund] they’re not the greatest fighters in the world,” Warren said.
