George Groves is Ready: This is My Moment To Shine!

George Groves says he is destined to defeat Carl Froch and seize his IBF and WBA world super middleweight titles in front of 80,000 boxing fans at Wembley.

The London-born boxer was controversially defeated by Froch in his first ever world title contest after the referee stopped the fight in the ninth round.

But Groves, who said his left-hook will knockout Froch, is adamant he will have his arm raised at the end of the rematch.

The 26-year-old also compared his opponent to a ‘man on death row’ during a press conference on Thursday.

Groves today wrote on Sportlobster.com: “Tomorrow night, I have the chance to fulfil so many dreams.

“Of course, I have dreamt of becoming world champion, but I get to do it on the biggest of stages.

“I have an opportunity that not even the most talented fighters get, which is to perform in front of a sold-out national stadium.

“Anyone who believes I would let this slip is greatly mistaken. This is my moment to shine.

“I will fulfil everyone's expectations and beyond. Enjoy the show. Vaya con Dios.”

Froch and Groves will have their weigh-in today, where both fighters will come face to face for the final time before they square up in the ring.

Groves has been involved in 20 fights and won 19, whereas Froch has a record of 32 wins in 34 bouts.

Groves will be sponsored by Sportlobster for the fight and is an ambassador for the sports social network.
