Prediction,

This is a very interesting fight. There are two very different ways of looking at this, both guys have good chances, for very different reasons.

This isn't a fight which is predicted similarly by everyone, but rather, you could ask one person for a prediction, hear one theory, ask someone else, and hear something completely different.

I think Eubank will win the fight, go through to the final, I would love to be wrong, I think Eubank is a horrible, callas human being, and I am a fan of Groves, but I think Eubank will win this one.

Eubank has a certain high level of talent, he is a natural puncher, mentally, he is at home when he is fighting, he has phenomenal stamina, he has a granite chin. I think before a fight, it is easy to be convinced by certain things, and sometimes they are important aspects, but at the end of the day, ultimate confidence matters, ability to physically hold up against punches, matters, being the less fatigued fighter in the late rounds, these things are very important.

Groves is still under 30, so he is in the age range of a prime fighter, but is the developed skilset, the enhanced experience of Groves enough to outweigh any mental scars and physical toll taken from his losses? Groves does have a very good chance, if he doesn't get hit, and he doesn't waste any steam early, he isn't old, he is the bigger fighter, he can punch, he has a lot of skills, we know he is a capable boxer, even in his losses, he impressed us.

I think Eubank Jr will stop Groves, I think Groves will have success, his weight advantage will help him, he'll land some big shots on Eubank, he might well hurt him, but when Groves pace drops, Eubank will begin to tee off, and it won't be too long before he finds a finishing shot or onslaught. I think Eubank might be trailing on the cards, but I think he'll stop Groves in 8.

I think both these guys are professionals, bit guys will be physically in great shape, but I think the difference is, mentally, Groves might be looking forward to retirement, but has the professionalism to see his career out to the end, he's to dedicated to his craft to retire too young, but Eubank, not only is he not going anywhere until retirement is a good idea, but I think he lives and breathes boxing, I think he is obsessed with the sport, and that really (if I'm right about that) does give him a mental upper hand.

If Groves loses this, I think definitely retire, if he wins, then he'll go through to the final, take on either Smith or Braehmer for the trophy, after which time, I think he will call it a day, win or lose, so he has 1-2 fights left, it is is just a matter of whether he leaves the sport on a positive or negative note. Whether he wins or loses this, he has done himself proud with his career, he showed us so much skill, and will against Carl Froch, he fought tooth and nail against Badou Jack only to lose a disputed decision, so it was great to see him win a world title, he was a deserving champion.

Eubank shouldn't overestimate himself, or underestimate Groves, weight matters, size matters, and his dad, as a trainer, could be tested in this fight, I don't rate him as a top trainer, he's a wise man in the sport, but he is no coach. I don't think Eubank is the best in his division, and I don't think he will have it his way when he fights a fighter like Groves, but with a good chin, particularly good stamina, and who is overall maybe slightly better. A lot of people will laugh at Eubank if he loses this, because he's a bully he's a disgusting human being, and when he wins, we have to give him credit, we don't like to.

groves has got to stick that jab into eubanks face from the get go and keep his range i dont think groves can win this on the inside.

Don't have a long form prediction for this but I believe this is about a 50/50 fight and I can see reasons why both can win. Groves has a lot of miles on him for his age and has been talking about retiring in the not so distant future. I think prime Groves wins this clearly as I think he is a better boxer. However, Groves had difficulty with Chudinov and Cox wasn't a real barometer of his level so I believe his level could be declining. Eubank has a much better mental game going into this and seems like he wants it more so I will predict Eubank UD.
