Good move IMO!

[QUOTE=denium;14570626]If Froch wins, is he realistically going to fight DeGale? I'd rather see Froch-Chavez JR or Froch-GGG.[/QUOTE] If Froch wins I reckon it's safe to say he'll do a decider against Kessler.

[QUOTE=denium;14570660]Froch is nearly finished which is a massive shame for the sport. One more fight after Groves maybe?[/QUOTE] If Froch beats Groves, he will fight on imo. It will be Chavez, DeGale or Kessler (if he can activate rematch clause).

[QUOTE=boxingfan1986;14570620]is there any significance in groves announcing this before the fight?[/QUOTE] "Everything for a reason." How many times has Groves said that during the build up to this fight?
