“This is an unbelievable event to be apart of,” said Langford. “The World Boxing Super Series is fantastic for boxing, and Groves vs Eubank is an exceptional fight. So it’s an honour for me to defend my British title on the undercard.”

“I know Jack Arnfield well, he’s a good fighter. But there’s no way he has enough to beat me. He better be ready come fight night!”

Arnfield, the 28-year old mandatory challenger from Blackpool, is making his second attempt to win the prestigious British title, after an unsuccessful challenge in 2015.

Said Arnfield: “I’m over the moon to be boxing on this massive show. I always perform my best on the biggest stage.

“I have sparred Tommy Langford before, so I know exactly what he’s going to bring. I’m not worried at all!

“It’s every boxer’s dream to win the British title. It will be the biggest achievement of my career to capture the British title on Feb 17.

“I’m going to beat him up and punish every move he makes. I just hope there are no excuses after he loses.”
