By Edward Chaykovsky

IBF/WBA 'regular' super middleweight champion Carl Froch is only days away from his anticipated rematch with domestic rival George Groves, which takes place before a massive crowd of 80,000 fans at Wembley. This is the biggest fight of Froch's career and one of the biggest fights in British boxing history. Froch drew 20,000 fans for last year's rematch victory over Mikkel Kessler and he can't even imagine what it's going to be like to fight before a massive audience that is four times bigger.

"I knew it would be big, but not this big, so, yes, it has surpassed my expectations," Froch told The Nottingham Post. "Because the first fight was controversial it has set up this rematch and made it such a massive fight."

"Selling out an 80,000 seater stadium for a boxing event has not happened post-war. This is the biggest fight in the history of British boxing since the war. It's fantastic to be involved in and I'm so proud to put my sport that I love on a platform. It's a proud moment for me and my family."

"I've never been to an event at Wembley so it's all going to be new to me. I can only imagine what it's going to feel like it's going to be phenomenal. It's four times bigger than anything I've ever done. We had 20,000 at the O2 (against Mikkel Kessler) and this is going to be 80,000. The O2 was massive, so to be four times bigger than that I can't even imagine what it's going to be like, but we'll soon see."

For those who were around to see it both in the UK and abroad, how big was Lewis-Bruno at the time?

BENN vs EUBANK 2 can't be beat in BRIT history and that fight was also the unify WBC-WBO smw world champion;this is a great fight but not so important for the boxing world indeed! If BENN and EUBANK step in the ring tomorrow at 50y,they bring 80.000 brits too,that rivalry is huge.

[QUOTE=hugh grant]If he says it it, i wont argue, whatever he means by the biggest? But in a way its kind of not, as its a case of Groves, who has he beat almost hes not Frochs equal. Benn and Eubank, or Watson and Eubank if were talking recent memory may be bigger depending how you judge, becau...

Froch is too slow, He gets blasted out this time since the "Saint' has gained strength and worked with Paddy for a full camp. Speed kills
