    Great performance by Groves, kept Eubank on the end of his jab all night. Looked drained at the weigh-in but apparently he re-hydrated to 83kg for the fight!

    Callum Smith been rearranged to fight Nieky Holzken after Jurgen Braehmer pulled out. There's talk of Eubank going through if Groves doesn't recover from his dislocated shoulder in time for the final which I find preposterous! They should just rearrange the bout if he's injured.
    Your boy Anthony Yarde is also in action tomorrow.

    It's a bit stupid that they can't rearrange fights, this guy holzken has only had 13 fights and will probably get battered.Braehmer deserves his chance, he has pulled out with the flu, so probably would have been ready to fight in 6 weeks.
    If groves isn't fit they should make smith the champion until the fight can get made, no way eubank deserves the chance.yes yarde defends his european title also daniel dubois is on the same card, really good heavyweight prospect.apparently knocked joshua spark out in sparring once.

    Yup heard about that too. I think he's still a teenager as well, lad's a beast.
    Na Eubank should probably move back down now, the experiment at Super MW should end here. The tournament hasn't even featured the very best in the division, the likes of Gilberto Ramirez and James DeGale didn't partake.
    I think by far the better talent has been on show in the Cruiserweight one.

    Stayed up for Wilder v Ortiz and didn't regret it one bit. Ortiz boxed very well so the fact that the judges had him down on the scorecards was an absolute joke, but they weren't needed so not a massive deal.

    Khan-Brook talk has been going on for years I'll believe it when a contract is signed tbh although the fact that they are both now with Matchroom makes it very likely. Shouldn't be anything other than an early stoppage for Khan against someone who Danny Garcia landed on at will.
    Speaking of which Garcia v Porter also on today.

    Khan looked past it,think he should hang up the gloves now.
    Got a funny feeling Joshua will lose on Saturday,not been impressed at all with his last 2 defences.

    Agreed he should just take the career high payday with Kell Brook and then call it a day.

    Povetkin's a dangerous inside fighter but quite small for a heavyweight and was recently rocked by David Price. As long as AJ keeps him at arms length and imposes his size he should be able to chin him when the opportunity presents itself. Although would be interesting to see how Joshua reacts if/when Povetkin manages to land something clean himself.
