Carl Froch Vows: George Groves Will Fall Apart Again

By Edward Chaykovsky

IBF/WBA 'regular' super middleweight champion Carl Froch is confident he will break George Groves down before a crowd of 80,000 in Wembley Stadium in London on May 31. They fouht last November, with Froch gaining a controversial ninth round stoppage. Froch was down in the first round and Groves was winning the match on the official cards. Most felt referee Howard Foster acted too quickly in stopping the contest.

"I am in a very, very good place," Froch told the Nottingham Post. "I've not felt like this since the Lucian Bute fight and the difference for this fight compared to the first is that I am training as a challenger not as a champion. There is motivation now and there's a fire and a buzz about me which just wasn't there when I fought George the first time.

"Everybody told me it was a mismatch and regardless of whether George thought the fight was stopped early, I still won. But there will be no dispute this time. The training for this fight has been intense and my body is hurting, but it will be worth it. George fell apart in the two rounds I came back at him on what was my worst possible night.

"He will fall apart again I am telling you now, but this time I won't make the same mistakes as I did before. I know and he knows that he doesn't have the capability to tough it out with me."

[QUOTE=l1ght;14407064]Exactly. George is not tough enough to go the full distance with Carl. Georges only chance is to KO Carl before the championship rounds which he won't. Goodnight George.[/QUOTE] I don't think he will either but Froch can't be letting…

[QUOTE=denium;14407529]Groves can't fight for 12 rounds, he's a known gasser. He gets stopped late in the fight.[/QUOTE] Yes, typical 'Hayemaker' fighter.

It would be cool if Groves dropped Froch AGAIN in the 1st round. Kinda doubt Froch loses twice to him, but Groves is no chump... at least as far as Froch is concerned.

This fat Yank had Groves in the first fight, when everyone had Froch. The second fight won't need scorecards, Froch has been softened up by Kessler and Groves. The Saint by devastating KO

Even us fat yanks are looking forward to this one.
