IBF/WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch is better prepared, he says, for the May 31 rematch with domestic rival George Groves. Their anticipated fight takes place at Wembley before a crowd of 80,000 fans on May 31. Last November Froch got off the deck in the first round and had to rally down the stretch to get a controversial ninth round TKO victory.

Froch told Daily Mail: 'I'm feeling very fit, strong and very confident ahead of the 31st. I have been so meticulous in the build-up. It just shows the difference between the first fight and the second fight. I am always physically in great shape, I always train hard and dig in but the feeling I am getting now, fitness wise and mentally, it's just chalk and cheese from the first fight.

"I don't think the fight will go the full 12 rounds. The pace and the intensity I'm going to set from round one, I'm convinced George Groves hasn't got 12 championship rounds in him. He's not experienced."

so much for the handshake...

"Chalk and cheese...?" Froch is always good for at least one obscure English colloquialism.

I saw the teaser for their face off that Sky will be showing soon, and I can't help but think that Froch's outward confidence/arrogance is just an attempt to hide the fact he is a little worried. Groves on the other hand is/seems genuinely sure of himself. I could be way off the mark but its ...
