The Date and Time for Groves vs. Eubank
The British boxers will be getting into the ring on the 2nd of February 2018, at the Manchester Arena, and the tickets for the fight sold out within just hours of becoming available. The timing of the evening’s main event will depend on how the undercard progresses, much of which remains to be confirmed.
Based on previous events at this venue, however, the fighters will most likely begin their ring walks at about 22h30.
Watching the Fight on TV/Online
Boxing in Britain has for the most part been taken up by Sky Sports and, more recently, BT Sports, with lesser events being shown on Channel 5. However, the WBSS have a deal in place with ITV to show all their fights in the super-middleweight and cruiserweight divisions. This fight will be aired live on the ITV Box Office, but the pricing for the pay-per-view event has not yet been announced.
Those unable to purchase the fight through their televisions will be able to do so through TV Player. The site requires a once-off payment in order to access the stream through the website or app, but doesn’t allow users to watch the match on TV by doing so.
