Shocker: Fans comment on Groves’ gaunt appearance at Eubank Jr. weigh-in (head-to-head video)

George Groves surprised all on Friday by scaling just over 167 pounds for his super-middleweight clash with Chris Eubank Jr.

Eyebrows were immediately raised when Eubank hit the mark of 167.5 pounds and looked comfortable compared to his British rival.

According to many fans on social media, Groves looked drained and gaunt as he readies to put on a considerable amount of weight prior to fight night.

There’s set to be a huge difference between the pair once the first bell goes, but some feel Groves would have been better coming in as heavy as possible.
