Carl Froch: Groves Rejected Trilogy Clause in Contract

By Edward Chaykovsky

IBF/WBA 'regular' super middleweight champion Carl Froch does not expect a trilogy fight with domestic rival George Groves. This coming Saturday night at Wembley Stadium in London, 80,000 fans will pack the house to watch the two boxers get it one for a second time. Last November, Froch defeated Groves with a controversial ninth round stoppage.

Froch claims that Groves rejected a contract clause which called for a rematch clause. Groves recently signed with Germany-based Sauerland Event.

"George has got his second go at me but doesn’t fancy a third if he happens to get lucky. Maybe he’s not as confident as he’s pretending," Froch told Daily Mail.

Hopefully no Froch-Kessler III in 2015. Wouldn't surprise me at all though, especially if Froch loses. A "farewell match" in Nottingham against his old nemesis sounds predictable.
