Chris Eubank Jr is on his travels in Manchester today appearing to be very relaxed ahead of what will be his biggest fight to date this Saturday.
Saturday night Eubank squares off with Londoner George Groves at the magnificent Manchester Arena.
The largest purpose-built indoor arena in the UK (not counting stadiums with retractable roofs).
Eubank has been welcomed with open arms in Manchester this week.
This morning he even had time to meet players from one of the biggest soccer clubs in the world:

Groves is a die-hard Chelsea fan however, so no doubt he won’t be meeting the Manchester United team.
On a boxing note, the two men are now in what is known as the weight cutting process.
Well, at least George Groves is.
Eubank Jr should not have much weight to cut given the fact he’s a natural middleweight fighting Groves for his WBA super-middleweight world title.
Groves will be sweating off the final few pounds as we speak though and dieting to get down to the 168lbs for tomorrow afternoon’s weigh in at 4pm.
By all accounts Groves has done the weight well however and should be in peak condition.
