Froch: Maybe DeGale, Clev, Groves after Super 6, Kessler

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

JAMES DeGALE and George Groves have been given a huge incentive ahead of their big domestic dust-up on Saturday.

James DeGale defends his British super-middleweight title against his bitter rival – who holds the Commonwealth belt – in front of 20,000 people at London’s O2 Arena.

And just to add more spice to an already eagerly-anticipated tussle, WBC world champion Carl Froch says that he will meet one of them in a massive all-British clash.

Froch flies out to the USA today ahead of his World Super Six semi-final clash with Glen Johnson in Atlantic City on June 4.

DeGale or Groves will then meet Nottingham’s Froch in November or December to determine the undisputed world champion.

Froch said: “When I have done that and defended against Mikkel Kessler, I can meet whichever of my British rivals has reached world level.

“There is DeGale, Groves and then there is also Nathan Cleverly, who fights Jurgen Brahmer for the WBO light heavyweight title at the O2 on Saturday.”

He added: “I can hang around until DeGale, Groves or Cleverly get close to me.

“It would be a fantastic fight as it would be at domestic level and also at world title level.

“They are the best ones – the ones the public love.”

Froch is 33, but has no intention of retiring as he  bids for superstar status in the final years of his career.

He said: “When I’ve done with the Super Six and defended against Kessler, I can return to domestic level.”

Looking at Groves and DeGale, he said: “They both have great talent. DeGale won an Olympic gold and they don’t dish them out for nothing.

“George Groves is tough and determined, but he probably doesn’t have DeGale’s technical ability.”

Good point Manny. I'm glad Froch is back on Sky although I can't see either DeGale and especially not Groves lasting with him at all. Light Heavy post Super 6 for Carl. DeGale wins this weekend as well

[QUOTE=damned1974;10554567]Come on Froch! Forget about these two catfish until they are proven...I wanna hear him talk about fighting Bute or moving up to fight Hopkins....not these domestic level fighters-granted DeGale seems to have talent. I am used to hearing Froch…

[QUOTE=jimbo87;10554420]Carl's just being diplomatic here. If the chance of fighting Bute arises Froch will be all over it like a fly around ****[/QUOTE] I don't know man if Clev wins Saturday Froch may look at him as an easy route…

You can't be f**king serious guy's? Froch will kill both fighters on the same night. Degale is way too wet behind the ears. Groves is sloppy at times and needs a new trainer.
