After Chris Eubank Jr’s masterful performance against Avni Yildirim this past Saturday in Germany, the focus has now switched to George Groves.
The WBA World super middleweight is expected to get the win against Jamie Cox this Saturday and then face Eubank Jr in January in what would be one of the most anticipated British fights to start the year.
“Me and Groves have a history, a rivalry and the public have been demanding that fight for a number of years now.
“We are at the stage where it could happen in January. As long as he does what he is supposed to do against Jamie Cox then the fans are going to get a British super fight,” said Eubank Jr to the Daily Star.
The Brighton boxer is hoping that Groves delivers this Saturday.
“I’ll be there watching closely on Saturday and may the best man win but Groves should get through it,” told Eubank Jr.
Promoter Kalle Sauerland already has big plans for the possible fight between Groves and Eubank Jr.
“We have had exploratory discussions regarding Chelsea and other football clubs in London.
“Chris has made a huge statement here. If George does the same next weekend we are looking at a massive fight which could easily fill a stadium. There have been outdoor fights in winter before so the January date would not prevent it.
There have been outdoor fights in winter before so the January date would not prevent it,” told the promoter according to The Sun.
It could and will get cold at Stamford Bridge on a Saturday evening during January but Sauerland is expecting the crowd to be familiar with not so nice weather conditions.
“Remember the torrential rain and low temperature when Wladimir Klitschko beat David Haye in Hamburg. The crowd bring their own warmth to a stadium and conditions like that would not stop them turning out for a fight as big as this,” Sauerland said.
