Groves: Carl Froch Embarrassed Himself Pretty Badly!

George Groves is confident he will get his rematch with Carl Froch as the war of words between the two English super-middeweights continues.

Froch, 36, held on to his IBF world title in a classic bout in November - but only after the 25-year-old Groves had knocked the champion down during a whirlwind opening round.

'The Cobra' continued to endure some heavy punishment into the middle rounds but produced several telling shots in the ninth - prompting referee Howard Foster Jr to controversially halt proceedings in the Nottingham fighter's favour.

On the possibility of a rematch, Groves told Sky Sports: "Like a lot of fights, it appears to be very close but until it's in your hands, it's never close enough. The vibes I'm getting from Carl Froch's camp is that they desperately don't want it and keep talking about other options.

"Ultimately, I stand firm on my bold claims that he has no option but to fight me. It's the fight that the fans and the public demand, that the television networks want and it's the fight that the media in general wants.

"I know and I feel a lot of people know why he doesn't want to fight me, because apart from getting beaten he'll probably get hurt as well. He embarrassed himself pretty badly in the build-up to the fight and failed to perform.

"It was very unsatisfactory. Nobody really feels the fight is finished and it all adds to the feeling that this fight needs to happen again. That's where I'm at.

"You can be super-critical of yourself and I always am. I boxed a very good fight. I had a lot of pressure going into it, up against a world champion. Nobody thought I was going to win and I had to change camp. There were lots of things that can take away from a performance."

Groves does even a bigger number on him in the rematch. Froch will not match him in hand speed especially, and will get KO'd. 5 million quid is what they are offering Froch.

it was a good scrap. I think Groves was much better than Froch thought he would be (and worlds better than I thought he was). IMO the fight was stopped early, in the rematch, I believe Froch legitimately KO's him…
