    Default Groves v Smith to be held in Saudi Arabia

    Why would you choose Saudi Arabia?
    2 English fighters in the final and fighting for a title.... this should be in the UK so the fans can actually go and see it.
    Clearly a money spinner but a shit choice if you were wanting to see it live.

    First time a big fight is over there, wonder if this is the future of boxing.

    Hope not, this should have sold out an arena over here.

    And a pay service for streaming the fight perhaps?

    I'll have some of that.

    In all fairness we all knew if was PP fucking V and I have no problem with that, but what time will it be on if if is in Saudi Arabia?

    The thought of shelling out £20 to watch Smith and Groves whilst having to stay up until 6am to watch it doesn't fill me with glee

    Anyone have thought on this fight being for the Ring Championship?

    The ring are recognizing #1 Groves vs #3 Smith for their vacant title.

    Ramirez is #2, Benavidez is #4, Uzcategui is #5 and DeGale is number 6 in their rankings.

    For me there is not much between Benavidez and Smith, although Benavidez already has a title. Ramirez hasn't looked stellar recently.

    Question here is, should Smith be ahead of these guys and especially ahead of Benavidez?

    Basically a coin flip between Smith and Benavidez, they have similar form. Fielding just pulling off a big upset for the WBA title is a nice bump for Smith. Groves is clearly no.1 on career record and form. Perfect setting for the Ring belt really.

    On a side note I'd give Eubank Jr a great chance against Rameriz and Degale (current shot version). And Uzcategui is a good style matchup for him although he might come off second best in the punchup.

    I'm not sure if Smith or Benavidez beats Uzcategui, I would expect them both to beat Ramirez though.

    Yea I just found it unusual, it's not often they recognize a #1 vs #3 for their belt.

    Talking of Eubank Jr, is he still hiding under a mo hole cover somewhere, or has he indicated what he's doing next?
