George Groves dominates Chris Eubank Jr

World Boxing Super Series super middleweight semi-finalist Callum Smith believes he will be facing George Groves in the final.

Groves defended his title for a second time, using his experience to outsmart Eubank and come out ahead 117-112, 116-112 and 115-113 on the scorecards at the Manchester Arena.

The victor goes forth to the World Boxing Super Series final and will face either fellow Brit Callum Smith or Jurgen Brahmer.

By that stage, Groves - now with a professional record of 28-3 - had built up a handy lead over Eubank (26-2), whose pre-fight promises to outlast his fellow Englishman were undermined by a brawling approach nearly entirely devoid of nuance against a skill technician.

Though WBA champion Groves is just 18 months older than Eubank Jr, his career has included more high-profile bruising fights against the likes of James DeGale and Badou Jack as well two bouts with Carl Froch, including one at Wembley.

"This is the biggest fight of my career", Eubank Jr said. I had to resort to loading up because every time he would move to my right I couldn't see him.

It was the challenger who suffered though, an accidental head clash opening a sizeable cut on the side of his right eye.

Eubank Jr was not knocked down, though Groves was frustrated there was no count when his opponent fell to his knee in the 10th round and the cut he sustained may have forced him to try and change the fight's course with a wilder approach.

The world champion did actually look in trouble in the last round with the left hook catching him again and even though he seemed to lose his balance, the shoulder problem might have had more of an impact than Eubank Jr. I've boxed on with cuts, broken jaws, everything. "It was about who wanted it most I think and I obviously wanted it most".

Eubank Jr is available at 13/8 to win by KO, TKO or disqualification, whilst Groves can be found at 3/1 to win by the same methods. I didn't get hit clean.
