Chris Eubank Jr believes George Groves lost something after Carl Froch loss

Chris Eubank Jr has sent out a warning to potential semi-final opponent George Groves in the World Boxing Super Series

Chris Eubank Jr has sent out a warning to potential semi-final opponent George Groves in the World Boxing Super Series

Chris Eubank Jr believes he has nothing to fear as he prepares for a semi-final showdown with either George Groves or Jamie Cox in the World Boxing Super Series.

Underdog Cox came in at 76.1 kgs (11st 13 lbs) ahead of the Saturday night fight at Wembley's SSE Arena, with Groves tipping the scales at 75.8 kgs, both under the 12 stone limit. "The fight (with Cox) is just as big for me as the Eubank fight", Groves said.

Groves remains focused on his next fight, though, and is confident of victory over Cox this weekend.

"He has had to bulk up to get to the super middleweight division".

"We always wanted this fight with George Groves". I'm in this tournament as the number one seed.

"I've said it before and people have laughed at me".

Groves failed in three attempts to win world titles - against Britain's Carl Froch twice, then in a controversial split decision to Sweden's Badou Jack in September 2015.

Cox won light-welterweight gold at the 2006 Commonwealth Games as an amateur, and has held European and Commonwealth super-middleweight belts as a professional. I'll give George the edge of the fight.

"Jamie is not so big so if he comes in heavy he is going to be slow".

Each category offers a $25m (£19m) prize fund and a trophy named after late boxing great Muhammad Ali, with the victor of each expected to receive $10m (£7.6m) in total over the three victories needed to land the title.

This is the third quarter-final of the super-middleweight tournament, with Britons Callum Smith and Eubank Jr already qualified for the semi-finals.
