Froch Rejects Groves: Did He Give DeGale a Rematch!

IBF/WBA "regular" super middleweight champion Carl Froch has no interest in a rematch with domestic rival George Groves. Last month in Nottingham, Froch stopped Groves by way of a controversial ninth round TKO. Most believed the referee stopped the fight too early as Froch was trying to finish off a hurt Groves. Froch went down in the first round and was hurt several times in the contest.

Froch told Daily Express: "There is a real stink of hypocrisy about this because George Groves has been telling anyone who would listen I have a duty to fight him. I beat him fair and square. The referee stopped the contest and there is no arguing about the fact he was down and out.

"Did Groves hand James DeGale a rematch when they fought a few years ago in a close one? I didn't hear Groves going on about duty back then. Then Joe Calzaghe bleats on about rematches. I didn't see him give Robin Reid a rematch, or Bernard Hopkins. Yet I stopped a voluntary challenger and I'm supposed to hand him a rematch. I'm very reluctant to hand Groves a pay-day, especially when he behaves like an idiot all the time. I don't like him as he has absolutely no respect, no class and is a spoilt kid.

"Of course he wants to fight me again as he wants to make a killing. But why should I? I'm the champion and that means I call the shots."

Froch is right but he's wrong for not wanting to please his fans by not giving Groves a rematch.

[QUOTE=yoz;14070947]People act like Groves is some kind of angel. The guy taunted Kenny Anderson relentlessly, promised him a rematch, withdrew with a suspect injury, and then dumped the Lonsdale belt in the trash.
