CARL FROCH will quit boxing if he loses to George Groves in their Wembley superfight next Saturday.

Froch, 36, defends his IBF and WBA super-middleweight world titles against Groves in a highly-anticipated rematch.

Nottingham bruiser Froch won the first bout with a controversial ninth-round stoppage last November.

But many people believed referee Howard Foster called a halt to the fight too soon and the 26-year-old Hammersmith fighter is determined to gain revenge in front of an 80,000 crowd at Wembley.

Froch, a three-time world champion, says he will win but admits that, if he ends up losing, he will bring down the curtain on his career.

He said: "Since losing to Andre Ward two years ago, I have considered retiring if my career didn't go win, win, win.

"The next loss, I'm retiring because I can't lose. I am not in this sport to lose. I lost to Ward and it broke my heart."

But Froch is not contemplating that scenario and is hoping to finish his career in a blaze of glory by topping the bill in Las Vegas, the fight capital of the world.

He said: "Beating Groves will set that up for a massive fight in Vegas, potentially my last fight. We'll see how it goes and I'm taking it all one fight at a time.

"Beating Groves is not if but when. I am prepared to win this fight by whatever means necessary.

"Part of me says that if I do the business against Groves, I can tick the box of that other dream fight.

"That would, of course, be Las Vegas, the fight capital. To have my name up in lights in there, headlining the bill, and to be able to tell my little boy and girl, 'That's Vegas where I headlined the bill' would be the pinnacle.

"There would then be nothing else for me to do. The one thing I have not done is fight in Las Vegas.

"I am not interested in fighting Ward again. But it's a massive fight, and potentially one that could happen in Vegas.

"I would seriously consider it. That would be the ultimate, beating Ward and going out at the top in Vegas."

[QUOTE=Weebler I]I'd say they'd go to Amsterdam Arena before Vegas, Hearn said they discussed it as a possible venue for the second fight.[/QUOTE] Aye, it's a great venue. The problem is, most of the buzz has gone for a third fight Double header works. Maybe Groves vs. DeGale II and Froch ...
