Groves vs Eubank Jr

George Groves and Chris Eubank Jr as trainer Shane Mc Guigan and Chris Eubank look on during the weigh

George Groves skipped the post-fight press conference on Saturday night as the super-middleweight was taken straight to the hospital after his victory over Chris Eubank Jr.

Groves prevailed by margins of 117-112, 116-112 and 115-113 on the judges' scorecards at the Manchester Arena, despite suffering a suspected dislocated shoulder during the final round as Eubank launched a desperate onslaught. Although focused on his semi-final against Juergen Braehmer next weekend in Germany, Smith is keeping an eye on today's Groves-Eubank fight in the UK.

Though it was bloody and brutal, it was not one for the purists, with Eubank Jr wildly swinging in an attempt to turn the tide.

Eubank Jr, accompanied on stage by his father at the weigh-in, has been beaten just once in his career, by Billy Joe Saunders in 2014, and bookmakers have made him as the slight favourite against Groves.

Groves' WBA super-middleweight title will be on the line.

Eubank Jr had hoped this much anticipated domestic contest would elevate him out of his famous father Chris Eubank's shadow but Groves, the naturally bigger fighter, proved to be too shrewd having previously fought the likes of Carl Froch and Badou Jack. Before you sign up, though, know that you'll only be able to get it on Sky and Virgin boxes in the United Kingdom, according to the ITV Box Office website.

AJ McCarron: Wins appeal, granted free agency
The team put him on that list again on August 30, 2014, which meant he would miss at least the first six games of the season. McCarron, 27, entered the National Football League as a fifth-round pick out of Alabama with the Bengals in 2014.

Groves showed his class, befuddling Eubank Jr. behind boxing at a smart distance and counterpunching throughout the majority of the bout. I wanted it most. "I'm going to help him on that path". I've boxed on with cuts, broken jaws, everything.

Afterwards he bemoaned the cut he sustained from an accidental clash of heads.

Groves, 29, caught Eubank with single jabs towards the end of the first round and had more success in the second with a counter left hand.

Eubank touched down at one point, but it was not ruled a knockdown. I didn't get hit clean.

Eubank Jr is available at 13/8 to win by KO, TKO or disqualification, whilst Groves can be found at 3/1 to win by the same methods.

"I thought I pressured him the entire fight".
