A month has passed since George Groves defeated Chris Eubank Jr by unanimous decision in the semifinal of the World Boxing Super Series but the defeated fighter is not letting it go anytime soon.
Eubank Jr gave a fine account of himself in Manchester on February 17th but ultimately the classier, deserved winner in Groves ran out winner on points in the end.
Following the bout Eubank Jr initially maintained he thought he did enough to just win the fight, but his father quickly told him that he thought he had not.
A bit of time has passed now and Eubank Jr still feels he was the more aggressive fighter on the night.
Speaking to Samuel Fishwick of the Evening Standard, Eubank said:
“I was the aggressor, I was the busier fighter. But he never hurt me or had me in serious trouble. He was being bad and being negative. People saw that. People still look at us both and say I’m the more exciting fighter.”
Eubank Jr is currently now looking for an opponent after the tournament exit, which could come back at his natural weight class of middleweight (160lbs) some have suggested.
Groves meanwhile moves onto the final of the WBSS against Liverpool’s Callum Smith later this summer.
It is understood that the fight will take place in the UK, with venue and date to be confirmed in the coming weeks.
