ON Saturday (February 17) George Groves and Chris Eubank Jr will clash in the semi finals of the World Boxing Super Series at the Manchester Arena. It is a fight that has captured the attention of many within the sport, only enhancing the burgeoning reputation of the tournament that has been gripping so far.

However, the undercard is also doing its bit to help prop up the main event, with some closely matched, domestic meetings that have plenty of fuel feeding the fire. In particular is the chief support where Ryan Walsh defends his British featherweight title against Isaac Lowe.

Walsh has already made the required amount of defences to win the Lonsdale belt outright, however unlike many others he is refusing to relinquish his grasp on the title. For Lowe this provides him with a huge opportunity to add a well respected name to his ledger and propel himself into the consciousness of the British boxing fans.
