Groves Eyes Froch Clash: He's Nervous, I'd Beat Him!

By Nick Skoric, courtesy of The Daily Star

GEORGE GROVES claims Carl Froch is running scared from a domestic dust-up.

The Commonwealth super- middleweight champion fights Uruguay’s Noe Gonzalez Alcoba tonight before Froch meets Mikkel Kessler.

But the build-up to their respective bouts has been peppered with a war of words between the two Brits after Froch labelled Groves a ‘traitor’ for sparring with Kessler.

This has only intensified Groves’ desire to take on Britain’s No.1 super-middleweight.

He said: “Froch is nervous about all the hype around a fight between the two of us as the people keep asking for it.

“It is worrying him and he would rather fight people like Kessler and Andre Ward who have already beaten him.

“So if he loses to them, fewer questions would be asked.

“But if I beat him he is worried about what it would do to his legacy. I would love to have the fight and I would beat him.”

An all-British showdown is a possibility if Froch loses tonight, otherwise the Nottingham warrior will probably look to avenge his only other defeat to super-middleweight king Ward, who will be in the crowd.

Groves, 25 is the No.1 contender in the WBO rankings so is well placed for a shot at titleholder Robert Stieglitz.

He was scheduled to fight Stieglitz for the world crown last year until he was forced to withdraw through injury.

I think there is a time and a place for talk like this from Groves but in the week leading up to the fight this is just plain disrespect from him towards Froch, I understand he's just after some publicity…

Groves has a long way to go before he is ready for a fighter like Froch. His comments are foolish.

Can't blame Groves for talking like this he's a contender & the Froch fight would be fight in the UK but both Froch & Kessler are on another level to Groves. Can't blame Groves for sparring with Kessler either its…
