CARL FROCH branded George Groves a lightweight and vowed to send him packing as tempers flared ahead of tonight's Wembley scrap.

Around 5,000 fans packed into Wembley Arena across the road from tonight's big fight venue to watch the pair step on the scales.

And IBF and WBA super-middleweight king Froch goaded his challenger by telling him he has come in too light for one of Britain's biggest ever fights.

"I'm going to send him back down the hole he crawled out of and put this saga behind me," said Froch.

"I think he is feeling the pressure, I can see it in his face. I will put him out, I'm going to stop him, it will be conclusive."

Groves weighed in at 11st 12lb 4oz and Froch was more than a pound heavier, just inside the 12st super-middleweight limit.

Froch told Groves: "It looks as if you have come in too light, you look dehydrated and drawn."

But Groves hit back and said: "He is grasping for something he needs re-assurance, I said this six months ago.

"He can't find it and for that reason he is going to struggle. He is gone."

Tensions were high before the weigh-in and event staff had to stop Groves' security from storming on stage.

Ringside tickets for the most anticipated British fight for years were last night changing hands for 10,000 - almost 10 times face value.

Meanwhile, Groves will have to answer to the British Boxing Board of Control next week after saying Froch is a "man on death row".

[QUOTE=Lou Cipher]Hope you're getting paid a barrel of cash for writing about this crap fight every 30 minutes for the last 2 weeks. After about 10 articles its obvious this is just paid advertisement. Uh oh...Froch just farted and Groves vows to punish him for his flatulence. Better report that[...

[QUOTE=LacedUp]I thought he looked alright to be honest. I may need to rewatch it. The IBF have next day weigh-ins and I think their max is 10 pounds above the original weight. Groves re-weighed in at 175.6 and Froch 176.4 or something like that. So both were comfortable.[/QUOTE] Groves...

[QUOTE=Booty Dew]I thought DeGale looked drained too, face was really drawn in and his shoulders looked pointy as fuk. How do you know what Groves has rehydrated to?[/QUOTE] I thought he looked alright to be honest. I may need to rewatch it. The IBF have next day weigh-ins and I think their m...

[QUOTE=LacedUp]You look at Groves' opponents before the Froch fight dating all the way back to the Degale fight and it's been fights he's taken on weeks notice. He's never really had a solid 8-10 week camp since Degale. And if I remember correctly he made the weight inside the limit comfortably f...

[QUOTE=phatcatboxing]Don't hold me to this but his reportedly longer training runs my have something to do with it. If Paddy, The Don, Fitzpatrick is correct that can only mean Groves'll have more in the tank and the lighter weight may have something to do with it.[/QUOTE] You look at Groves' opp...
