The World Boxing Super Series super middleweight semifinal bout between George Groves and Chris Eubank Jr. was perhaps the most highly-anticipated bout in the tournament. One quick look at social media proved just how much fans, and boxing stars, paid attention to what ultimately ended up being a blood-filled, early fight of the year candidate.
Groves defeated Eubank by unanimous decision (117-112, 116-112, 115-113) to advance to the first ever WBSS super middleweight finals. Not only did Groves pick up a finals berth, but also unified the WBA “super” and IBO 168-pound titles.
Below are the reactions the boxing world has to Groves' win over Eubank.
Groves is scheduled to fight the winner of next week’s semifinal bout between Callum Smith and Juergen Braehmer. The 168-pound finals is currently scheduled to take place at London’s O2 Arena on June 2.
