Froch Shakes Head at Groves' Coach Use of Fitzpatrick

CARL FROCH has warned George Groves he does not have the right man in his corner.

Irishman Paddy Fitzpatrick took charge of Groves just weeks before his first clash with the IBF and WBA super-middleweight champion after the Londoner split with Adam Booth.

Groves is the first fighter Fitzpatrick, whose real first name is Gavin, has been the main coach for.

He was previously a boxer himself, but lost all five of his professional bouts.

And Froch insists he therefore has the upper hand with former world title challenger and GB Boxing coach Rob McCracken in his corner.

He said: "Rob has boxed at every level. He was the first Brit to win a medal at the World Cup, which was on a par with the world championships and Olympics.

"As a professional, he fought for a world title.

"I don't know where George gets his confidence comes from in terms of his corner man.

"He talks about doing it on his own, that he just needs someone to hold his water.

"It's not a good sign. His coach, Gavin Fitzpatrick, he's boxed - and I give anybody respect who's stepped in the ring - but he's got a 0-5 record.

"Five defeats and three of those were knock-outs. I don't think that's an ideal scenario and I've got so much trust in my coach."

Irish trainers are intense in the corner.

Sure just like this Paddy Fitzpatrick dude writing a letter to the British boxing board about how he feels that Froch has taken too many shots to the head and that they need to look closely at the fight and that they should advise Froch to retire etc... Shady stuff...

Froch talking **** once again. You dont to have boxed for a world title to know how to train. Virgil hunter didnt box and he gave ward the gameplan to beat him. And hes high in demand unlike his trainer. If his trainer was so good he would taught froch how to box. How to get his left hand upto hi...

Froch is pretty stupid here. Quite often it helps not to have even participated in the sport because you can look at it objectively. Look at Jose Mourinho in Football (soccer), he played at a very very low level and essentially gained his knowledge as a language translator by working alongside th...

All you need to do is talk to Paddy for a couple of minutes and you know that he knows his stuff. Really top class bloke if you ever get the chance to meet him.
