    Degale is still groves best win when they were both still in the early stages of their careers, he's lost in the biggest fights of his career and beat a walking punch bag to get his belt. I'm calling him overrated considering the love he's receiving on here.

    Groves is a bit overrated if anything. Everytime he stepped up he lost: Froch and Jack.

    Eubank will be by far his best win, and many of the guys on here don't even rate Eubank! LOL

    Mr L, I know I've given Jr some stick (actually large amounts) and I'm picking Groves but I actually do rate Jr, but nowhere nearly as highly as some on here, some of the hype is just way over the top.

    Jr is British, I actually like Jr's attitude to fights, take away the posing and it's no nonesense, he likes a fight, throws lots of punches when he lets those hands go. He does have personality, puts on a show and seems like a nice chap.

    What I will say is.. Sr doesn't help Jr with some of the stuff he says and does and I don't think Jr's fans actually help him with some of the things they say.

    Whatever happens and whoever wins on Saturday I'll be supporting them both afterwards and hope they go on and do great stuff.


    UK All Day.

    If you abbreviate your UK All Day it comes out as UKAD.

    Something you want to tell us N17? :)

    Who has Jnr beat since his loss to BJS? He has been carefully matched against slow fighters who cannot hurt him and he can lunge in at.Jnrs footwork is so bad that is why he has been so protected.Groves has timing speed excellent footwork a solid jab and genuine power all are wrong for Jnr which is why Jnr has no chance of winning the fight.It is just the dumb casuals bigging him up as the 2nd coming.The casuals are so stupid they think that Jnr is about 8 years younger than Groves.

    LOL! Saunders was schooling him with the consummate ease for the first 6 rounds until he gassed and there's no way he won the last 6 and even if he had that would have only been enough for a draw

    Jnr hasn't beat anybody special either but this is a George Groves thread so I was having my say about him.

    I suspect Groves has been underrated and Eubank overrated, this fight will be interesting..................don't know who will win, I give a very slight edge to Groves if his stamina holds up. Eubank promised Golovkin he would fight him, Golovkin flew across the ocean to sign a contract, then Eubank ran like hell! Left Golovkin without an opponent, so he ended up ending Brooks' career, it's a shame..............I blame Eubank, Jr. and esp. Eubank, Sr.

    I saw Usyk easily out box the 6 foot 6 inch Joyce, it was an easy mismatch for Usyk.............who is only 6 foot 3 inches tall...................

    All i can say as i did before is people underestimated Groves.

    Also there was a narrative that Eubank was this massivly improved fighter since BJS. Where the hell are the improvements?!?! He hasnt improved 1 single bit

    Groves has been underrated. Aside from being KTFO (can happen to anyone, he's human), he hasn't ever performed badly and definitively lost big time. Not an apologist either as the Jack fight could have gone either way.
