While a lot of people are expecting to a future clash between George Groves and Chris Eubank Jr, Jamie Cox has the chance to cause a major upset this weekend. \
The Swindon boxer’s coach Jamie Costello is more than delighted with the situation.
“We always wanted this fight with George Groves. We’d asked for this fight before so when George picked Jamie in Monte Carlo we was in our element. All our Christmases had come at once,” said Costello according to a press release.
Coach Costello believes that his fighter has a legitimate shot at beating the current WBA World super middleweight champion this upcoming Saturday at the Wembley SSE Arena.
‘’I’ve said it before and people have laughed at me. I believe Jamie can beat any 12 stone fighter on the planet. People are talking about size but that has no relevance for me. Carl Froch was 12 stone 4 when he fought George Groves at Wembley, and I believe George was over 13 stone. Jamie will be heavier than 12 stone 4. Jamie would be dehydrated if he got into the ring at 12 stone 4,” he explained.
Cox has the chance of a lifetime this Saturday.
He can become the WBA World super middleweight champion, cause a massive surprise, and advance to the semi-finals of the tournament and face Eubank Jr for the IBO title and a chance at getting to the final.

Costello believes Groves made a mistake in picking Cox.
“Size had no relevance that evening and it will certainly have no relevance on Saturday night. Jamie’s ability and what he brings will be very relevant because we’re taking that WBA super championship home with us. That’s 100% set in stone. We’re here to a do a job and that’s what we are going to do. George Groves made a big mistake when he picked Jamie Cox,” Costello summarised.
