Froch: I'm Not Sure Groves Will Ever Be World Champion!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Even if IBF/WBA 'regular' super middleweight champion Carl Froch is successful on Saturday night at Wembley, he doubts domestic rival George Groves will ever capture a world title in the future.

Froch has serious doubts about Groves' ability to withstand a tough twelve round contest. Last November, Groves controlled most of the first six rounds, but he tired badly in the second half of the contest and saw himself get stopped, controversially, in the ninth round. Groves also tired in the second of his victory against James DeGale.

“I’m not sure George will ever be a world champion. I don’t think he’s a twelve round fighter. He’s not genetically cut out for this at the top level – not tough enough. As for me, I’m not ready to retire. I’m enjoying the sport. I’ve loved being away from home, but don’t tell my wife! I had my feet up in the bath the other day and thought ‘Why don’t I always do this?’ This fight will secure my legacy,” Froch told Mirror Online.

lol "world champion." We got parking attendants and high school janitors that have been "world champions." Carl's trying to make it seem WAY more glamorous than what it's actually worth at this point.

Ward has not done himself any favours at all. He is in worse position now that he is 'champion' and got no one to blame but himself. He might even be undefeated when he retires yet he will be forgotten…

Ward fought the best available guy he hadn't already beat late last year and that's considered being inactive enough to not be THE champion lmao. He is lineal by definition and he is clearly the champion in the division. He…
