George Groves Eyes a Carl Froch Showdown For 2013

British/Commonwealth super middleweight champion George Groves wants an all-British showdown with former world champion Carl Froch in 2013. Groves defends his British title against Kenny Anderson at Wembley on 16th of March in a rematch of their 2010 bout, which Groves won via a stoppage.

"One of the biggest fights in a year's time would be me and Carl with a world title on the line," said Groves to BBC Sport. "The styles gel and we're both always in exciting fights. That would be a great British match."

"I can box long, I can box on the back foot, I can move, I can stand and trade - it will be a combination of everything. Sometimes I make mistakes and have to slug it out, like I did with Kenny Anderson, sometimes I let my hands do the talking, like when I knocked out Paul Smith [in his last fight in November].

On opponent Groves is not really thinking about is career rival, James DeGale. In 2011, Groves won a close decision over DeGale in a battle of unbeatens. He sees no reason for a rematch in the near future.

"He's always going to be loosely on the radar. He's winning and no doubt our paths will cross again," said Groves. "But I don't need to push for the fight. I've beaten him as a pro and an amateur, so there's nothing in it for me except for another pay-day. I beat James 99 times out of 100 and soon the British public will know it for certain as well. If the fight doesn't come off it doesn't bother me because I've already beaten this man."

Kilrain - he could lose them but he could win them all too. Whilst I'm sure he'd like the fight next year, it's publicity for himself to call Froch out for next year regardless of what happens to Froch. He's…

Froch's top dog in the Uk at the moment so he's going to get targeted by the guys coming through. Cleverly and Groves want a piece and it's understandable. These fights can happen next year for both hopefully but they…

Who knows where Froch is going to be in 2013? He might lose to Bute next, and then he might lose to Kessler again. Or Cleverly. Or Ward again. Why call out a guy who might be 0-3 in his…
