There’s a lot of people with egg on their faces this week who passionately backed Chris Eubank Jr to beat George Groves this past weekend. But one fan in particular has produced a novel way of explaining himself.
Everyone makes mistakes.
Going into the fight last weekend a lot of late money went on Chris Eubank Jr from fans.
You could tell because the closer the fight got, the odds slowly shifted in his favour and a fight that was a 50-50 with bookmakers for months, became a slight favourite for Eubank Jr in their odds.
Well, one fan on Twitter has come up with this hilarious admission to Twitter about what happened from his perspective:
(Hat tip @Babs_SP)
Hello @TwitterSupport I believe that I have been hacked over the past 4 months. Someone has been tweeting on my account saying that they expected Chris Eubank Jr to beat George Groves. This has never come from me.
