    Unbelievable that Eubanks was the bookies favourite.
    He was only the favourite as he got the majority of publicity/press, so more people put money on him.

      The boxing writers / radio experts I read/heard, all said Groves the naturally much bigger fighter would win.

      Eubanks must be pretty embarrassed, especially with how he was outclassed. I watched one of his self hype videos where he viewed a luxury house he was planning to buy after beating Groves.

      What a dong. He's definitely stepped into his fathers shoes as the new clown of boxing.

      116-112 Groves. I picked Groves on point but thought it would be far closer. In the end it was a comfortable victory for the Londoner who only surrendered the final round due to an injury. Eubanks Jnr needs to find a proper trainer who tells him his father is no longer part of the camp. Snr's ego is not what's required for a fighter who needs to learn several basics.

      At no stage did he try and set up an attack, but instead tried to overwhelm an experienced fighter with crude attacks which were easy pickings for Groves.

      Pleased for Groves as I've always liked him since following his early fights.

      Eubanks can come again but he needs to drop the Davies & Eubank Snr show and find an old school trainer either here or in the States.

      Sounds likes many a PL footballer. Stephen Ireland, Joleon Lescott, the entire Aston Villa squad 2015/16. Bling.

      Yeah I saw that the other day too. I'm sure his ego has taken a big hit today. Excuse the pun.

      I personally wouldn't say he was outclassed though, obviously subjective.
      I think the boxer had better skills than the brawler, and used that little bit of extra experience to dictate 8-10 rounds of the fight.

      Second half of the fight was decent, glad I watched it.
      Jr needs to spend 6 months learning some real boxing skills. He can't rely on flurries and rushing against title-holders.
      And drop back down to MW.

      But personally, I think his ego is too big to admit he has massive gaps in his ability and address them.

      and stay at his weight, not chasing $ for the sake of it.

      Eubanks Jr did team up with Adam Booth but that only lasted a matter of weeks. From what I've heard, there wouldn't be a coach on earth who would cope with Eubanks ego. I assume that's why his relationship with Adam Booth was ended very quickly. He can't handle being told what to do. He's a spoilt, arrogant idiot who thinks he knows it all. Every boxing coach's nightmare.

      He clearly suffers from Golden child syndrome that his Dad has put onto him. Everything Jr does represents senior. It's all about Senior. He's probably raised his son Jr without any criticism towards him treating Jr as the special one out of all his kids not to mention the Planet (in Eubanks words). Therefore has created a man with no identity, self delusion and someone who won't learn from his mistakes.

      The whole Eubanks warrior code crap is just simply embarrassing.

      If that's the case his career is as good as over, unless he accepts at this stage of his career he's by no means the finished article and needs polishing to get him even close to World level.

      In his favour he has heart, stamina and a chin but that's not enough at top level and he needs to be able to box effectively on the front foot if he wants to be a pressure fighter. The problem is he isn't a concusvive puncher at World Level.

      The other factor is he's 28 so not a kid. He needs to get away from his dad move to America and join up with someone like Virgil Hunter, get some good sparring in and remodel himself.

      I had eubank 4 up. Admittedly I've been drinking but groves barely stepped forward for 8 rounds & ran away continually. Yes it's boxing but stand & fight occasionally is required.

      Having said that you could see groves was confident that eubank wouldn't hurt him - as he ran away
