It looks like Manchester Arena will be the venue for the World Boxing Super Series semi final between super middleweight world champions George Groves and Chris Eubank Jr. The venue, which holds 20,000, is due to be officially announced on Thursday, reports World Boxing News. Dates of the 3rd and 17th February 2018 are being mooted, the website also reports.
While the fight should sell out wherever it is, Groves has a huge London based following and Eubank's home town in Brighton, so the move may be motivated by availability as much as sellability. Regardless of where it is held, the showdown will be hugely popular and currently Eubank Jr is the bookies slight favourite.
The other semi final, which features Liverpudlian Callum Smith against Germany's Juergen Braehmer, is also set to be announced, and an all British final is a distinct possibility. The rumours around the venue for that semi final are that it will be on home turf for Braehmer.
