Froch: I Beat Groves on My Worst Possible Night

By Edward Chaykovsky

IBF/WBA 'regular' super middleweight champion Carl Froch admitted that George Groves got under his skin prior to last November's fight. Froch abandoned his game plan in the ring and then attacked Groves with both hands swinging. It allowed Groves to drop him hard in the first round and then work him over until a controversial stoppage in the ninth round. Groves was ahead on all three of the official scorecards when the bout was stopped.

Now they rematch on Saturday night, May 31, at Wembley before an expected 80,000 fans.

"I carried a lot of anger into the first fight with George and it certainly impacted on my performance. He got under my skin and when I was inside the ring, I just wanted to fight him rather than box him. That was down to the way he was acting in the build-up, but it led to mistakes. I didn't stick to my principles and the way I operate like working behind my jab and even though I won, it was my worst possible night," Froch told The Nottingham Post.

"The psychologist I am working with helps the Team GB Olympic team and it's something that I have always been interested in. It was part of my sports science degree I completed at university and if you look around be it teams or individuals, they are becoming more and more widely used."

Groves couldn't beat him despite having Froch on the verge of being stopped so I can't see it happening again now that Groves wont be underestimated.

I watched the fight again and GRoves was - 6 rounds up going into round 9 and with the knock down early in the fight he would of had an extra point - I agree Groves was tired and trying to ride out the 9th out to re-charge for the last 3 rounds and the ref goes ahead spoils the fight - he gift...

[QUOTE=Saint G Groves]You think Froch won round 7!? That was gone of Groves' best rounds, he dished out plenty and took little in return[/QUOTE] I've seen a few people score that round for Froch. Probably because he didn't take the kind of beating that he did in the previous round.

[QUOTE=Copyright]Just watched this fight again first time since the night of the fight, Groves wins 1,2,3,4,6 clearly. Froch wins 5,7,8 and 9 at the time of the stoppage. Stoppage was a bad stoppage, Groves should have been given the opportunity to fight it out, The referee not only ruined ...
