Froch: Groves' Arrogance, Childishness Motivates Me

By Kevin Francs, courtesy of The Daily Star

Champion Carl Froch feels motivated to annihilate George Groves. The Cobra defends his IBF and WBA world super-middleweight titles against Groves at the Manchester Arena on Saturday, November 23rd.

And the challenger, 25, has been attacking Froch, claiming that the Nottingham fighter received lucky verdicts in many of his fights.

There is no love lost between the pair and Froch, 36, is using the anger he feels towards the unbeaten Groves to ensure he is in peak condition for the clash.

The champion, who has lost just two of his 33 contests, said: “I have got that extra little bit of edge mentally, with it being George Groves, because of his ­arrogance and ­childishness. He has motivated me so much with his attitude. I can’t lose to this guy – I just can’t lose.”

Carl Froch beats this guy... Or at least he'll fight his heart out -- that's what he does best... And that's what I like at Froch... (I also like Froch as a boxing commentator... The same as I like Ward...)

[QUOTE=springfiels;13922862]If the Dirrell fight had been anywhere in America, Froch lost that without a doubt. I also accept that it is irrelevant because a fight lasts 12 rounds and Froch scored a KO, but up to that very point Taylor…

Haha talk about calling the kettle black..you dont get more arrogant than Froch. I do not understand why people like him, he is a mediocre fighter so far up his own arse it is unbelievable. In the head to head…
