WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch has denied a recent story put out there by undefeated British champion James DeGale. In a recent piece, DeGale†claimed Froch knocked out another unbeaten Brit, George Groves, during a sparring session. DeGale faces Groves on May 21 at the O2 Arena in London. Froch admits that he dropped Groves during the sparring, but there was never a knockout and Groves continued to spar.

"Thatís rubbish; I donít talk about sparring cos its just sparring. Yes I put Groves over, heíll tell you that, and it was in Sheffield with the GB squad so a lot of them watched me do it and have probably talked about it I guess. Itís sparring at the end of the day. And I didnít knock him out, if I knock somebody out that means theyíre out cold and donít carry on fighting. I put him over in about round two or three of our spar and he got up and carried on for another couple of rounds, he was alright. Iíve already said DeGale is kidding himself if he thinks this fight is a formality," Froch told boxingfutures.com

Froch is not ruling out an upset win by Groves. Most have DeGale as the big favorite to win, but Froch is giving Groves a shot because of his tough training and good preparation for the fight. Groves has been sparring in Miami with top contender Andre Dirrell.

"For me itís a lot closer than everybody seems to think. People say DeGale hasnít been tested yet but thatís because heís outboxed everyone heís gone in the ring with. But donít write off Groves, heís got the perfect sparring partner in Andre Dirrell, heís fast, hard to hit and comes back with good shots. Itís great preparation for someone like DeGale," Froch said.

Being honest, i wasn't a Froch fan until he began fighting the big names in the Super Middleweight Division. I always saw him as a big mouth but he's really grown on me. He fights with his heart on his sleeve and is a pretty class act. His girlfriend is pretty good looking but she really needs...

[QUOTE=belna]Froch gives credit to the fighters he's faced and ****s on the others. It's a way of giving himself credit. My opponents are so good and I beat them. I am great. And for Kessler, he's extraordinary, a great warrior. Of course, they wrongly gave him the decision...[/QUOTE] Aside fr...

[QUOTE=paulf]You must not follow Froch very closely. He has a big ego, but gives talented guys their credit. He's praised Kessler on many occasions before and after their fight.[/QUOTE] Froch gives credit to the fighters he's faced and ****s on the others. It's a way of giving himself credit. ...
