CHRIS EUBANK Jr has told George Groves to ensure he does not deny the British public the 'superfight' they crave.

Eubank surged into the World Boxing Super Series semi final after a chilling third-round knockout of the previously undefeated Avni Yildirim in Stuttgart on Saturday night.

It means he will now meet the winner of Groves' encounter with Swindon's Jamie Cox at Wembley Arena at the weekend – and Eubank is clear on who he will be supporting from ringside.

“Me and Groves have a history, a rivalry and the public have been demanding that fight for a number of years now,” said the man from Hove.

“We are at the stage where it could happen in January. As long as he does what he is supposed to do against Jamie Cox then the fans are going to get a British superfight.

“That's what I've been chasing for a long time and those are what I'm in the sport for.

“I've done my job, now it's his turn to do his. I'll be there watching closely on Saturday and may the best man win but Groves should get through it.”

It is understood that January 20 is the date pencilled in for the clash, with London almost certain to play host to Eubank's semi-final contest.

And the 28-year-old, who moved to 26-1 with the win in Germany, says he will once again jet off to Las Vegas as part of his preparation.

Eubank added: “Training with Floyd Mayweather Senior out there is great.

"It's a melting pot of great fighters so it would be good for me to go out there and spend some time.

“But my base will always be in England, it's an all-British affair in the semi-final.”
