Eubank Sr. Not Worried About George Groves Capabilities After Son Sparring

Eubank Sr., who is the trainer and manager of his son isn't scared of his sons opponent WBA world champion George Groves, which comes up in a few days time as they have sparred with each other on several occasions in the past.

IBO super middleweight world champion Chris Eubank Jr. is planning to add George Groves WBA title to his collection come February 17th in the semi-final fight of the World Boxing Super Series super middleweight tournament at the Manchester Arena.

Despite having both fighters claim to have an egg in their previous gym encounters, Eubank Sr. believes his son can handle every thing George Groves is made of. Telling Boxing News he said

"First of all you have to understand that I engineered these sparring sessions to happen because if you can beat them in sparring, you can beat them in a real fight. The only difference is, there is no decision at the end of the sparring session. These trainers who haven’t lived the life of a fighter, how can they know that?,"

"After that sparring session I said [to Junior], ‘You got him?’ He said, ‘Yes, I got him.’ So am I worried about George Groves? No. Why? Because I know. I’m not guesstimating here. Beat the fighter only once, even three, four years before the real fight happens, and that person knows. And you know.

"It is a profound thing when you spar a man or fight a man. You are very close to them, you know about their strengths, if they wince, if they will be intimidated when you jab, if you feint and attack. You see this. You feel this. What these trainers are missing is this: They’re looking at the physical aspect, and at gameplays. No. I’m not looking at any of that. I’m looking at one thing, and one thing only. Spirit. And that’s what separates Junior from the rest of them."
