Groves Vs Eubank Jr Sells Out In 7 minutes


It took seven minutes to sell out the Ali Trophy semi-final bout between WBA Super Champion George Groves (27-3, 20 KOs) and IBO-titleholder Chris Eubank Jr. (26-1,20 KOs) at the Manchester Arena on February 17, 2018.

 

Europe’s largest purpose-built indoor arena will be at capacity to witness what promises to be the biggest Super Middleweight night in years.

 

“This is a sensational start to the semi-finals of the World Boxing Super Series and the quest for the Muhammad Ali Trophy,” said Roberto Dalmiglio, Comosa’s CEO.

 

“I said before we went on sale that the fight between Groves and Eubank Jr. represents the boxing event fans cannot afford to miss, and I am happy to say that I was right.”

 

Said Kalle Sauerland, Comosa’s Chief Boxing Officer: “This is clearly the fight everyone wanted and I am sure this super-fight will capture not only a nation but a generation of fight fans.”

 

“The build-up is going to be huge and we can’t wait to go to Manchester for a sold out event between two spectacular rivals and world-class fighters.”

 

“We will work hard over the coming weeks to release extra tickets to meet the huge demand for this fight.”

 

The build-up to the all-British grudge match begins today when Groves and Eubank Jr. come face-to-face at a kickoff press conference at 2 pm in London.
