In the end George Groves simply knew too much about the art of boxing at the highest level and Chris Eubank Jr looked like a sickened boy at times at the Manchester Arena late on Saturday night. The pair met in the semi-final of the World Boxing Super Series, their world title baubles were also part of the winner’s bounty, but it was always the fight that mattered and not the lavish trimmings.
Long before the boxing, the monocle and other absurdities Chris Eubank, the father, was the best thief in Peckham and a sofa-surfing nuisance on the streets of London. Eubank was also in and out of various homes all over the capital, and one in Wales, during a bleak period when wearing a stolen Burberry coat and getting high mattered to him. At sixteen he fled to New York on the run from the police and out of any new, bright ideas to survive; he insists he wore his best silk suit for the flight.
The George Groves and Chris Eubank Jr prizefight on Saturday in Manchester has the right amount of conviction, delusion and shared history to make it a great fight. It is big enough to rise above the two baubles on offer and the smart World Boxing Super Series branding will be pretty furniture once the light show has faded, the ring has emptied and the first bell chimes for what will be the semi-final of this seminal event.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
