Groves: Froch Knows He Has Absolutely No Chance To Win

By Edward Chaykovsky

George Groves is smiling because he's confident that IBF/WBA 'regular' super middleweight champion Carl Froch is completely broken on a mental level, as their rematch approaches on May 31 before a massive crowd of 60,000 at Wembley Stadium.

Groves plans for revenge when they clash in a mandatory rematch, which the IBF ordered after the referee prematurely stopped their bout in the ninth round last November. Froch hit the deck in the first round and saw himself take punishment before rallying to get Groves in big trouble in the ninth.

"I think he's in for a torrid time, I think he's in trouble. I think he's preparing for a fight he can't possibly win," Groves told Talk Sport's Drivetime. "I think he knows now, if he didn't know before, that he has absolutely no chance of winning this fight. He can't make eye contact with me at the press conference, he can't do these fundamental easy things that are now an everyday thing in professional boxing.

"Every fight you do a face-to-face. It 's for the cameras and it doesn't need much. The fact is that the man can't look me in the eye, he can't engage. The first time round for the first fight he gave me an earful when we did the face-to-face, this time round he can't even look at me. I think that's fascinating."

"He's gone into his shell. This time around he doesn't want to engage at all but unfortunately for him it's pay-per-view so he's contractually obliged to show up at press conferences and be in contact with me in the build up to this fight."

One thing we have to remember, Froch has been in alot more wars than Groves... but then we also hear Froch say he had a poor performance in their 1st fight, said he didn't train properly. I think he pulls…

I noticed in the first fight that when George gets tagged he gets co*ky and drops his hands while trying to act as if he is fine when he is clearly a little dazed. That is gonna be his downfall…

Groves' reputation is gonna be ruined after he gets beat in the rematch and his career is gonna go backwards because of all the smack he has talked that he won't be able to back up. I mean how stupid…
