The dust has now settled on this weekend’s world title fight in Manchester where George Groves overcame Chris Eubank Jr at the Manchester Arena.
The fight ended in dramatic fashion in the final round when Groves dislocated his shoulder and still fought on with one arm, somehow managing to land right hands on Eubank who also landed very heavy shots on the one-armed Groves.
An excellent bout overall that left fans watching at home and in attendance equally satiated.
A lot of the critics since the defeat have pointed the finger at Eubank Jr’s father for taking too much control in his son’s boxing career.
Since the defeat at the weekend, Eubank senior has sent the following summation to what he thought of the fight:
When you place your dreams in front of the crowd, you risk ridicule, embarrassment or failure, but risk is what frees us from the regret of not trying which punishes the heart as the years pass.
We adore the controversy we create which is always based on strength in character.

Moving forward it will be interesting to see who Eubank Jr surrounds himself with in terms of his training team, and if he keeps his father involved in his career.
