George Groves showed his class this weekend in his unanimous points decision victory over Chris Eubank Jr who although was as game as ever, was not in the class of Groves.
The move up in weight to fight an elite super-middleweight like Groves proved a step too far for Eubank Jr in the end.
He’ll now likely move back down to his usual weight of middleweight after this run in the World Boxing Super Series has now come to an end.
Speaking after the fight in the ring, Groves said:
“Well done to Chris Eubak. He didn’t lie when he said he was going to grit it out. He didn’t bring the pressure he said he was going to though. I dropped him at least once. They didn’t give him he count A bit dubious there. He was strong inside like we expected. Very, very happy with the performance.”
And indeed he should be.
An excellent game plan delivered by both him and trainer Shane McGuigan on the night.
Experience counted for Groves in the end.
He had been in these occasions many times before and you could tell in the quality of his work that he was enjoying himself in there.
A man who loves his work isn’t working at all, after all.
A happy fighter is a dangerous one – as one Mike Tyson said before.
