Groves discussed Eubank Jr’s thought process: “He thinks he’s going to win because its destiny or it’s his time”.

“None of that crap exists, it’s who is better on the night. It’s not his time.

“He has got to a position where he wants all the things he’s wanted for so long, he probably thinks he’s going to achieve them.

“But you’ve got to win some fights first, you know what I mean. There’s no point dreaming about stuff which hasn’t happened. He’s getting a little bit ahead of himself.

“It won’t be an easy fight, but the way he has been elevated means it will be a huge fall from grace for him.”

Eubank Jr quipped back: “He won’t go 12 rounds.

“Somebody is getting knocked out, and this chin doesn’t have an off button. His does.

“I don’t have any hate for the guy.

“He’s just the guy with a belt that I need to beat to win the tournament.

“Like I said, I keep my emotions out of boxing. It’s not personal. It’s just punishment.”
