World Boxing Super Series Semi Final - George Groves vs Chris Eubank Jr - WBA & IBO World Super-Middleweight Titles  |  Action Images/Andrew Couldridge

THE George Groves vs Chris Eubank Jr WBA super-middleweight world title fight, and World Boxing Super Series semi-final, took place tonight at the Manchester Arena.

Groves defended his world title and won a place his spot in the final later this year. Chris Eubank Jr fell on George Groves with ferocity but without accuracy. He unsettled Groves when he clattered in on the inside but could snag Groves on the end of his combinations all too rarely.

Groves manoeuvred, landed jabs to keep Eubank at bay and hammered him with a heavy right to force the challenger back.
