Froch: KO of Groves Gave Me Smile That Will Never Go

Carl Froch says sending George Groves "back down the hole he crawled out of" has left him the happiest man alive.

The double world super-middleweight champion finished his feud with Groves with a huge right hand in the eighth round of their record-breaking Wembley rematch on Saturday.

British boxing's biggest post-war crowd was there to witness a victory which had none of the controversy of Froch's ninth-round stoppage in November.

Groves' antagonistic attitude in the build-up to both fights left Froch unimpressed, but in the immediate aftermath of Saturday's win he spoke graciously about his younger rival.

Froch has since watched the fight back and viewed reruns of Sky Sports' Behind The Ropes programmes in the build-up, and in an interview with Boxing News he said: "I couldn't be more satisfied. I've got the biggest smile on my face and I don't think it will be gone for the rest of my life.

"I've had to endure some serious abuse, silly games and unnecessary antagonising. He's been antagonising me for so long.

"I've only just watched the Sky Behind the Ropes ... and some of the stuff his trainer was saying and Groves was saying, it was just horrible.

"And I thought to myself, 'It's such a good thing that they did not win.' If they'd deserved to win I would have held my hands up and said 'Fair play to you, a fight's a fight and I hold my hands up.'

"After watching the shows I just thought it's unnecessary. Between the pair of them I think they've really made themselves look stupid. Both of them.

"He's now been sent back to the hole he crawled out of, as far as I'm concerned. He came out his hole and he just abused me, he's been horrible, and I feel no love or hate nor am I happy or sad for him, I have put it to bed.

"I have a big smile on my face, I've watched it back and I'm the happiest man on the planet."

Carl is cool as f*ck. He says some tremendous stuff, and says it so casually that you can only smile. Not to mention he backs up his talk.

As gifted as Groves is, I was getting tired of his antics. Rubic's cube at a press conference? WTF? Show some respect. Sky face to face I've seen on youtube was plain weird. Froch literally asked Groves, why can't you…
