rough as sin tho, can’t see him winning like that.


#102

It’s like a replay of his fight with Billy Joe. Starts fighting like everyone expected him to only after the points game has escaped him. Should make for a good last 3…


#103

Think he needs at least a knockdown to win


#104

And getting schooled by someone who can move their head and sit behind a jab


#105

I really expected him to have picked up a couple of things in the interim but he looks every bit as scrappy as he did then.


#106

Really impressed with groves. Picking shots as eubank comes forward then tying up as soon as he gets inside


#107

Me too - gotta eat some humble pie after this. I thought Groves was running out of miles but he’s fighting an ugly fight in a clinical manner.


#108

He’ll never be fashionable or have any star quality but there’s a reason he’s only lost ever to jack and Froch, innit


#109

Great last 30 seconds. 116-112 for groves


#110

Dunno what it adds up to but I found 3 for eubank and tied one.


#111

4, 6, 9, 12 for eubank


#112

I really didn’t rate Jack at the time which I think coloured my rating of Groves since but he’s gone on to prove me wrong too. Might have to get out of this predictions business.


#113

fair play to Eubank that was a big finish, but Grove boxed his way to that win. Jr absolutely has to escape his dad and get some actual tactical training


#114

Bold strategy from Eubank; don’t start boxing until the last 25 seconds.


#115

John Hartson’s looking well


#116

Gotta hand it to Eubank Jr for his ability to look that smug in comprehensive defeat. An impressive feat.


#117

Tbf he came far closer in that interview to admitting he lost than I’d expected


#118

Almost. I like him openly wondering if he might get to the final if Groves is injured. Nothing sweeter than getting through by default.

Bloody love Nas.
