George Groves: Carl Froch Knows He Can't Possibly Win

By Jack Wilson, courtesy of The Daily Star

GEORGE GROVES had told bitter rival Carl Froch: You've no chance of beating me!

The pair meet in one of the biggest fights in British boxing history at Wembley on May 31.

The IBF demanded a rematch after ref Howard Foster jumped in and ruined the first fight, handing Froch a controversial win in the ninth round.

Groves roared: "We're back here - we've got the rematch. We've got it at Wembley.

"Carl Froch has been mandated for a fight he doesn't want to take, a fight he knows he can't possibly win.

"It was a stonewall robbery first time - everyone knows it.

"It gives me great joy this is happening

"He didn't want to take this fight, that's round one to me.

"Round two is that we are sitting in Wembley - my home city. Carl's got to travel down to London now, all the way down to my hometown in front of my fans.

"The first fight we went in believing, now we go in knowing.

"He knows he can't take anything from the first fight. He had nothing, he knew he was totally spent."

Nottingham bruiser Froch had been reluctant to fight Groves again until the IBF intervened.

But on the prospect of fighting in front of 80,000 Brits, Froch said: "It doesn't get any bigger than this.

"I'm so, so excited.

"I'm excited that this opportunity has come along at this time of my career."

[QUOTE=bojangles1987;14315455]Yep, I'd be surprised if Froch even shows up on fight night. They'll have to drag him from under his bed and carry him kicking and screaming.[/QUOTE] Sure, buddy :lol1:

Groves will do anything to get under Froch's skin. If it works, it will be a big advantage for him. Froch needs all of his experience and nerves to work together for this one. If Froch keeps his composure right…
