THE World Boxing Super Series tournament has set up a range of high calibre semi-finals. They will all take place within the first two months of 2018, with George Groves vs Chris Eubank Jr the highlight.

WBA super-middleweight world champion George Groves will meet Chris Eubank Jr in either London or Manchester. This fight will take place in February.

There are quality boxing venues in those cities, the O2 in Greenwich and the Manchester arena which seat about 20,000. But there had been hopes that this fight would take place in an open air stadium. That however is problematic for the time of year.
