Groves/Eubank Jr At The O2?

WBSS Location Picture Is Getting Clearer


As the WBSS heads into the semi-finals, dates and locations are starting to take shape. Tournament organizer Kalle Sauerland hinted earlier today at where the George Groves vs Chris Eubank Jr fight may take place;

“For Groves v Eubank Jr. we are looking to hold the fight in London or Manchester,” Sauerland said.

When pressed for more details Sauerland admitted that the O2 and Manchester Arena are his top two choices for Groves-Eubank while he’d like to see Callum Smith vs Juergen Braehmer head to the Echo Arena in Liverpool or Germany.

These seem to be pretty obvious choices for these fights, as both Groves and Eubank are British fighters while Braehmer could likely get some pull in his native Germany.

Earlier in the week he announced the fights were likely to take place around February and now we have an idea where. I’m sure I speak for almost all other boxing fans when I say we’re just ready to see the fights!
