Froch, Groves Prepare For Manchester War on Nov. 23

Carl Froch will defend his WBA and IBF World super middleweight titles against George Groves at the Phones 4U Arena Manchester on Saturday November 23.

Tickets for the blockbuster British showdown will go on sale at midday on September 17, when the champion and challenger go head-to-head at the first press conference for the fight. Full details on ticket prices will be released ahead of the sale date.

Froch added the WBA belt to his IBF crown in an epic rematch with Mikkel Kessler in May, with former British and Commonwealth champ Groves extending his unbeaten record to 19 fights on the undercard at The O2.

“I’m delighted to bring this event to Manchester on November 23,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “This 'Battle of Britain' is a fascinating fight between a true legend of British boxing in Carl Froch and a superb young talent in George Groves; it's going to be some atmosphere, some occasion. Phone lines, twitter and emails haven't stopped for tickets since we confirmed the fight. We are expecting another instant sell out when we go on sale on September 17.”

The Phones 4u Arena Manchester has staged some of the biggest bouts in boxing history including classic fights by Mike Tyson, David Haye and Joe Calzaghe, plus hometown heroes Ricky Hatton and Amir Khan.
