Chris Eubank Jr trolls his fellow UK super-middleweight as both men edge nearer to a potential showdown in the World Boxing Super Series.
IBO super-middleweight world champion Chris Eubank Jr returns to action this coming weekend in Germany but should he win his fight and should George Groves win his quarter final in the same tournament the following weekend, the two are heading for a showdown.
The pair have been rivals over the years but until only recently have found one another in the same weight class after Eubank Jr moved up to the 168lbs two fights ago.
Indeed, Eubank Jr knows all too well of a man that stopped Groves on two occasions, Carl Froch, having sparred with Froch in the build-up to one of the mega events with Groves:

Of course, both fighters have come on leaps and bounds since then.
Groves in particular has overcome significant adversity to claim the WBA world title at super-middleweight, a feat that happened on his fourth attempt at a world title.
Eubank appears to know the two are heading for a collision course and has already started some of his early mind games even before his own fight next week.
Speaking on Twitter Eubank told Groves:
“U say ill be the 1st seeded fighter to lose! You really believe that or u just pray I lose so u wont meet your maker in Jan?”
