  • George Groves & Chris Eubank Jr Weigh In- Hilton Deansgate Manchester Britain

Chris Eubank Jr and George Groves finally go head-to-head in the World Boxing Super Series semi-final tonight.

"The Saint" dominated the first half in front of a packed Manchester Arena and held on through an expected late onslaught to take the unanimous decision, with the judges scoring 117-112, 116-112, 115-113 in his favour.

Today's bout also represents the semi-final of the World Boxing Super Series, meaning the victor gets a date against either Callum Smith or Jurgen Braehmer come May.

Eubank went the distance against Kamil Kulczyk of Poland and knocked him down in the penultimate round before earning a 40-35 points win.

Eubank Jr, accompanied on stage by his father at the weigh-in, has been beaten just once in his career, by Billy Joe Saunders in 2014, and bookmakers have made him as the slight favourite against Groves.

Skinner won the National ABA championship class C 54kg female title in 2013 -- less than a year after taking up the sport -- but was on the wrong end of a 39-38 verdict against Hungary's Gabriella Mezei from referee Mark Lyson.

Eubank touched down at one point, but it was not ruled a knockdown. He cut me. I couldn't see out my right eye.

Groves said after the fight: 'I haven't diagnosed it yet but it feels pretty sore but I wasn't going to let anything beat me tonight. I didn't get hit clean.

"I don't think of retirement, retirement is not a word that even comes into my mind".
