Chris Eubank Jr

Chris Eubank Jr is fired up ahead of his highly-anticipated bout against George Groves.

The bout between Chris Eubank Jr and WBA super middleweight king George Groves is set to go down in the Manchester Arena on February 17. The Brits will battle it out for a place in the final of the World Boxing Super Series.

On the other side of the draw, Germany’s Jurgen Brahmer takes on Callum Smith. To the victor of the inaugural final goes the spoils of a cool $10 million.

That type of prize money is not to be sniffed at. So naturally enough, Eubank Jr is taking this training camp very seriously.

To help him prepare for battle, Eubank Jr has enlisted the help of Vladimir Belujsky, a Cork-based Slovakian-born pugilist.

Talksport recently ventured out to Eubank Jr’s gym to capture his training. They managed to get some interesting footage of him sparring Belujsky.

As you can see in the video embedded below, the shots exchanged had a little more heat on them than you might expect. Chris Snr had to step into the ring to try to simmer down the situation.

His first effort didn’t work as the two went back to swinging bombs at each other. This prompted Chris Snr to step in once again. The second time, he made sure to separate the two warriors and remove his son from the battle.
