Froch: I Showed Why I'm Among The Best in The World

Carl Froch believes his knockout victory over George Groves at Wembley Stadium proves he is among the best fighters in the world. Froch retained his IBF and WBA super-middleweight titles with a crunching right-hander in the eighth round which floored Groves in front of 80,000 fans.

The win brings to an end months of wrangling between the pair since Froch controversially beat Groves in the first fight between the two in November.

"I showed tonight why I'm a four-time champion of the world, why I've defended my world title 13 times on the spin," Froch said.

"I am amongst the best fighters in the world - that's who George Groves was in there with tonight.

"The finish of that (fight) showed why I've mixed with the elite for many years and how hard it is to get to that level."

He added: "I am feeling unbelievably elated, this is the best moment in the history of my boxing career."

Groves made a solid start to the contest which began cagily, with neither fighter wanting to give anything away.

Froch was patient, waiting for his opening and Groves struggled to keep pace as the fight wore on.

"I knew it was only going to take a couple of big right hands to the chin and I timed it perfectly," Froch said.

"It's a 12-round sport, last time I was rushing it, I was trying to catch him with that shot in round one and ended up walking into one and it made for a spectacle.

"That was a tactical, stand-off fight. We had a game plan and the game plan was executed perfectly tonight."
