Froch and Groves looking to settle the score
- Updated: May 29, 2014
May 31 figures to be a unique atmosphere when Carl Froch takes on George Groves in one of the largest venues in the world, Wembley Stadium.
“I still can’t believe that we’ll be walking out in front of 80,000 fans, boxing fans and non-boxing fans,” Froch said.
At the age of 36, Carl Froch appears to be approaching the end of a storied career. One thing he wants to do before it all comes to a close is silence the critics who said the first fight was stopped prematurely.
“I think every fight in every professional boxer’s career is equally as important,” Froch said. “This one, because of the stage in my career, because of these two world titles, because it’s an immediate return against George Groves, has an air of importance.”
Froch has always been a fighter who, even in defeat, has provided the fans with a crowd-pleasing style of pugilism. He says this is the biggest fight of his career. Claiming he is in tremendous shape, Froch is ready to turn in another successful performance.
“Hardcore boxing fans know what I’m about,” Froch said. “And when I turn up in the shape I’m in now, you’ve seen it time and time again against top competition, I’ve proved I can perform.”
“This couldn’t be more perfect really. I’m going to become World Champion in London,” Groves said. “56 hours seems a little too long for me right now.”
Groves says he plans to knock Groves out on Saturday and he even knows how it’s all going to go down.
“It will be the left hook that finishes Carl Froch on Saturday night,” Groves said.
