The World Boxing Super Series, super-middleweight division, is now well under way and it has thrown up a very interesting all-British semi-final.

The draw has seen, after they won their respective semi-finals, George Groves paired with Chris Eubank Jnr.

In the quarter-finals of the competition, Groves beat Jamie Cox whilst Eubank beat the Turkish fighter Avni Yilirim.

The date and venue for the eagerly anticipated bout has now been announced.

The fight will take place at the Manchester Arena, on 17 February 2018.

Ahead of the announcement of the venue, Groves, who holds the WBA version of the super-middleweight title, had suggested he?d prefer the fight to take place in his native London, quite possibly at a football stadium.

As it turns out, Groves will be making a return to the Manchester Arena, the very arena where he fought Carl Froch for the first time and was stopped in controversial fashion.
