The World Boxing Super Series super-middleweight tournament has reached the semifinal stage, and the first of the two semis figures to be a thriller. On Saturday, February 17th, WBA champion George Groves (27-3, 20 KOs) will take on Chris Eubank Jr (26-1, 20 KOs) for the right to advance to the grand final. Groves’ belt is also on the line, so Eubank Jr could win his first major championship.

Both Groves and Eubank scored knockouts in their respective quarterfinal bouts. Groves finished Jamie Cox with a body shot, while Eubank sensationally wiped out Avni Yildirim. This is the best opponent Eubank Jr has fought since Billy Joe Saunders, who did hand him his only defeat to date. For Groves, he finally got his world title with a TKO of Fedor Chudinov last year, and he doesn’t want to relinquish his belt this quickly. There’s millions of dollars at stake, as well as the inaugural Muhammad Ali Trophy.
The atmosphere at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England should be phenomenal. Here are the details you need to watch this all-English showdown.
