CHRIS EUBANK Jr believes he is on a collision course with George Groves after defending his IBO world super-middleweight title with a unanimous points win over Arthur Abraham at Wembley Arena.

Brighton’s Eubank Jr failed to deliver on his vow to knock the former IBF middleweight and twice WBO super-middleweight title holder out but he powered to a one-sided win to book his spot in the inaugural World Boxing Super Series.

Next up for Eubank Jr will be Turkey’s Avni Yildirim in a quarter-final contest, with the winner set to face either Groves or Jamie Cox.

Groves, the recently-crowned WBA world super-middleweight champion, was ringside to watch Eubank.

It’s a showdown fight fans have been clamouring for and Eubank Jr, 27, who has claimed in the past he bossed sparring sessions with Groves, is sure it is getting closer.

Eubank Jr said: “We (him and Groves) shall be in the ring within the next five or six months. We both have fights around September time. I am going to win mine, if he wins his then we shall meet early next year.

“Groves knows what I am and what’s happened in the past. He might play down the fact we’ll face each other and say that Callum Smith (Super Series entrant) is a bigger test, or whatever he wants to say, but he knows that title is coming home with me in the next six months.”
