Groves vs Eubank Jr
By John Paul Barber


Hey James,

I'm not sure if British boxing flies across your radar but there's a big fight coming on Saturday. It's George Saint Groves vs Chris Eubank Jr. I'm sure you remember Jr's daddy from the 80s and 90s.

Groves had a memorable fight a couple years ago when he and Carl Froch filled Wembley Stadium with 70,000 fans for their super middleweight bout. Groves rode out to the ring in a double decker bus. I know you hate the English but you can't help but admire a man who ain't afraid to trigger the Muslim invaders by flying St George's cross on his robe and trunks.

Eubank Jr's star has been rising and he's very quick. Groves is getting a little long in the tooth but is still a bruiser. This fight is a semi-final matchup that's been part of a tournament put on by Sauerland Promotions.

The fight is free for us Americans and will be streamed live on the World Boxing Super Series Youtube Channel. The main event is scheduled for Saturday 5PM EST but you might want to tune in earlier if you care about seeing any of the undercard.
