Super middleweight contender Chris Eubank Jr. is predicting that world titleholder George Groves will defeat British countryman Jamie Cox in their World Boxing Super Series quarterfinal bout on Saturday at the SSE Arena Wembley in London.
Eubank's prediction should come as no surprise because he won his quarterfinal bout last week by third-round knockout of Avni Yildirim to advance to the semifinals, where he will take on the Groves-Cox winner.
After the fight, Eubank, 28, also of England, made it clear Groves is who he wants to fight in the semifinals.
"Nothing is certain -- anything can happen in boxing -- but I want George Groves to win," Eubank said Thursday.
Eubank (26-1, 20 KOs), the son of 1990s British star and former super middleweight and middleweight world titleholder Chris Eubank Sr., considers himself the favorite to win the eight-man tournament.
