DeGale: If Froch Doesn't Change, Groves Beats Him

By Edward Chaykovsky

Unless IBF/WBA 'regular' super middleweight champion Carl Froch is able to adjust, James DeGale believes his amateur and professional rival George Groves will come out victorious on May 31st at Wembley Stadium.

Last November, Groves dropped Froch in the first round and then won most of the first six rounds. Froch came back in the second half and scored a controversial ninth round TKO victory, which promoted a high fan demand for a rematch.

At the same time, DeGale doesn't believe Groves can look any better than he did in the first fight.

"The first six rounds were embarrassing to him. The way Groves dominated him was embarrassing, because people have hyped Froch up so much, it looked so much better on Groves. I don't know, I'm not too sure if he can change, that's the question. Can he change? Because if he goes into the fight like he did in the first fight, I think he's going to lose," DeGale told Sky Sports.

"I think we've seen the best of [Groves]. Obviously getting the decision over me, that was three years ago, I think we've both changed but getting that decision over me and I think him against Froch was him on his best night. That was him full out. I don't think you can see any better from him."

I'd like to know what degale is basing his assumption that the last fight was the best of groves and we won't see him any better than that, on. Given that groves has significantly improved from each of his previous fights why would he suddenly plateau and regress at his age. Unless paddy Fitz...

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK]It's easy to say that. Whether he underestimated him or not doesn't change the physical and stylistic advantages that Groves has. Is Froch gonna be more careful? Doesn't matter because Groves is still faster and Froch still has a poor defence[/QUOTE] Exactly. Someone spe...

Put it this way, it isn't going the distance and I feel like the first fight didn't really show Groves' vulnerability. If Froch jumps on him, which I think he will, he'll possibly get Groves out of there even quicker. I don't think he has the footwork/movement to avoid Froch all night and he'll b...

Froch is about to catch an arse whooping. Groves will land the straight right and then hurt Froch badly with an uppercut.

[QUOTE=Weltz]Froch underestimated Groves in the first fight. I think he will adjust as the other guy here says and show Groves who's the BOSS.[/QUOTE] You're delusional mate, Froch is going to get destroyed.. it won't be a close fight at all.
