Eubank Jr.: The only time I've been knocked out

From ESPN - February 15, 2018

Chris Eubank Jr. revealed the blueprint to knocking him out and unfortunately for upcoming opponent George Groves it does not involve a boxing ring.

Eubank Jr. (26-1, 20 KOs), who fights Groves on Saturday at the Manchester Arena, lost to Billy Joe Saunders via split decision back in Nov. 2014. However, despite the defeat to the now-WBO middleweight world champion, Eubank Jr. is yet to lose a fight via knockout and is adamant it will not happen throughout the duration of his career.

"The only time I have ever been knocked out in my entire life was in a rugby game when I was about 13," Eubank exclusively told ESPN.

"I used to play on the wing. The opposing winger has the ball in his hand and he's running full speed at me.

"I go down to tackle him and he jumps up and his knee hits my temple. That switched me off for about half a second, so I have gone out and hit the ground. I did not even feel myself hit the ground.
