Chris Eubank Jr says George Groves may consider retirement if he loses

Chris Eubank Jr says George Groves may consider retirement if he loses

Groves' belt will be at stake, along with Eubank Jr.'s IBO trinket, at the Manchester Arena on Saturday (February 17), exclusively live on ITV Box Office in the UK.

Groves is making the second defence of his title at the Manchester Arena on Saturday in all-British contest, with a place in the World Boxing Super Series final also up for grabs. "Eubank's hurt, he's wobbled" and then if Groves can finish him, the ref will jump in and stop him.

"You want to be Insta-famous like me", he continued to tell Hammersmith's 29-year-old Groves.

"He knows how to lose, he has been definitively beaten". His chin has an off button but mine doesn't.

'George could sail off into retirement after this and enjoy the money.

"Sleep with that belt his week, hold it close and enjoy the rest of your time with it because it's coming home with me". I've sacrificed a lot, I've been through some bad times to get to where I am now. Desire is everything I've had in abundance.

"Chris Eubank Jr has the work rate and the pace, the engine and the fitness to do the 12 rounds at a pace", Froch told talkSPORT.

Instead, Groves only offered short replies to lengthy Eubank Jr statements, notably in saying his defeats to Froch, Badou Jack in 2015, and wins over James DeGale and Fedor Chudinov - where he claimed the WBA title in 2017 - were harder tests than fighting Eubank Jr.

"You'd love to have my style". "You're wearing the same suit I wore when we had our first face-off, you want all the social media followers and you want to be as good as me".

Groves deemed the sparring "irrelevant" and played down the need to hype a fight for which tickets sold out in seven minutes.

The victor will not only hold world champion status but will reach the final of the World Boxing Super Series, where a substantial share of prize money and the Muhammad Ali Trophy will be up for grabs against either Great Britain's Callum Smith or Germany's Jurgen Brahmer, who meet next week.

He added: "I'm not expecting easy night but it'll far easier than previous fights".

"This is the fight that can propel me to the top of the sport, a defining one, and George is just the first one to bite the dust before I go after all the belts". He has everything to lose, which makes him risky. "I think you're jealous, George".

Eubank Jr, who has won his last eight fights since losing for the only time as a professional to Billy Joe Saunders in November 2014, added: "I don't think George is fully committed to this fight and I don't think he's willing to give everything to win".
