Groves Eyes Carl Froch; Hearn Discusses The Fight

George Groves has reiterated his belief that a fight with Carl Froch could happen sooner rather than later. IBF super-middleweight champion Froch is currently tied up with Mikkel Kessler and potential re-matches with Lucian Bute and Andre Ward. However, British rival Groves intends to crash the party and will be looking to advance his reputation when he fights on the Froch-Kessler undercard on May 25.

"We can't name anything yet," he told Sky Sports on a potential opponent. "Within the next few weeks we'll see what's available. It has to be a big fight, I need a big fight. If we can get a title or an eliminator for a title that's we'll hope for, at worst it will be a significant fight against a ranked opponent that will bring me on."

"Carl's a great fighter, we sparred together over the years but we're rivals now. There's a possibility a fight could happen sooner rather than later. If I can get a few fights (before then) that would be great. It would be awesome if I could win my own title and we could have a unification clash.

Promoter Eddie Hearn believes Froch vs Groves could be made as early as this year.

"He's got to keep winning," Hearn told Sky Sports of Groves. "Froch against Groves is an obvious fight but it has to warrant happening, and it doesn't right now because Groves is only 17-0. I think 2014 or even late 2013 it's an obvious fight. Froch wants the Ward rematch...but that's a tough fight and there's other fights out there.

"I think Carl would win right now but you don't know how good George might be. He's got fast hands, he's exciting and likes to trade, which is not a good idea against a guy like Carl. We'll see."

Carl Froch destroys Groves. Too strong, too tough for Groves.

Any version of Carl Froch schools any version of George Groves. End.

[QUOTE=Jakutindi Wauya]That was just him being nice,I know because I was on the ground.[/QUOTE] What exactly does being 'on the ground' entail? You're trying to say you were there & watching the sparring?

[QUOTE=Jakutindi Wauya]They won't mention Dirrell because Dirrell owned Groves' asss in sparing.They know he's no where near Dirrell because they sparred a lot in Florida when Dirrell was grossly out of shape.Still he proved to be far too good for Groves.[/QUOTE] Do you have a video of the spa...

[QUOTE=Jakutindi Wauya]Dirrell was injured in the Abraham fight.He tried coming back then he was injured again.He wanted Bute but somehow things fell through.Next thing they wanted him to fight in London but they low balled him. I agree with you, he had great potential.I know he's faster than War...
