Eddie Hearn: I Want To Make The Froch-Groves Rematch

By Edward Chaykovsky

Promoter Eddie Hearn is itching to make the rematch between IBF super middleweight champion Carl Froch (32-2, 23KOs) and his domestic rival George Groves (19-1, 15KOs). The fought in a highly publicized fight last month, where Groves knocked Froch down in the very first round and he was ahead on the official scorecards when the referee controversially stopped the fight in the ninth round. Groves says he was buzzed but says Froch was hurt far worse in several of the previous rounds and the referee allowed the contest to go on.

"I want to let the dust settle a little bit. There is a long time before Carl Froch fights again. You're looking at next summer. For me, as a fan, I want make Carl Froch against George Groves, but Carl has got a lot of options. I was with HBO last week talking about Chavez, talking about Golovkin, talking about Ward. I appreciate what the UK fans want [a Froch-Groves rematch], and I'm one of those people. Hopefully we can get it made and that will be our focus in the New Year," Heard told Sky's Ringside.
