Froch: TKO Prevented Groves From Seeing a Stretcher

By Nick Parkinson

World super middleweight champion Carl Froch said he would consider a rematch with George Groves after what the beaten challenger called an "unjust" stoppage in a dramatic all-British bout in Manchester last Saturday night.

Groves, defying all predictions, sent Froch to the canvas in the first round and appeared to be well ahead on points when referee Howard Foster stopped him on his feet in the ninth round. As a result, Froch retained his International Boxing Federation (IBF) and World Boxing Association (WBA) titles. Foster's controversial decision was met by boos from the crowd and afterwards Groves insisted he was fit to carry on.

Froch was adamant Foster had rescued Groves from an inevitable knockout, and possibly a career-threatening blow, but added he would be open to a rematch.

"It was a tough fight but I broke him down in rounds seven and eight and stopped him in the ninth," Froch said. "I got off to a slow start and he's tough, but he's not that tough because he got stopped. You don't want to see a kid get knocked unconscious cold and carried out on a stretcher."

He's a bit stupid in the head. And he'll be on every possible boxing related tv program saying stupid things till he's 80.

The bout was prematurely stopped in the worst way. I like Froch, but to say what he said is just comedy. The ref should be reprimanded.

Being the proud Canadian that I am. I am going to extend an olive branch to my British cousins. I will be sending over Steve St-Germain over to you guys for future in ring officiating.

[QUOTE=LacedUp]He might have been stopped.. But I don't think it looked as such in the moment. He was just getting up and pushed Froch back as the ref jumped in and grabbed him in a headlock. it was laughable - and it still is - to think that a fighter who was throwing back and dodging punches co...

[QUOTE=Weebler I]:rolleyes: the point stands, Groves is getting a lot of mileage for a fighter who many believe was about to be stopped.[/QUOTE] He might have been stopped..
