Super middleweight contender George Groves feels he has WBA/IBF champion Carl Froch right where he wants him. Last November,Groves came close to taking Froch out but fell apart in the late rounds. He had Froch down in the first and continued to land big punches, grabbing a lead on all three scorecards leading into the ninth. It was in that round where Groves was hurt, with referee Howard Foster jumping in a little too soon to wave things off.

Because of the early stoppage, a rematch is now scheduled on May 31 at Wembley Staidum in London.

Its clear he doesnt have a taste for me, says Groves to The Standard. Im no different towards anyone in any fight. Hes just the same to me but its clear he has his own mental demons. Hes seeing a sports psychologist and I can tell that hes worried. He wont make eye contact but I know hes thinking about me and, if hes thinking about me, thats fine.

Hes brave in that he takes a lot of shots but hes not a warrior. Hes like a cat that waits to lash out and an aging cat at that. Hes never had much of a technique to fall back on and hes slowed. He can take a shot but not repeatedly from me. I wish him luck but hes not showing me anything. Im a faster fighter, I have faster hands and a better defence. Its only going to end one way.

Groves better upside
comment by Tuavale, on 04-09-2014
Groves, I believe, can do better in this rematch while I think Froch will be the same. Groves has to pace himself better and have better transitions between offense and defense. And must punch with Froch when the slower Froch goes for his attack and not look to turtle so much. Groves will always ...

[QUOTE=Scary]Froch is not a warrior as much as Groves is not annoying. Both statements completely proven false, this kid really finds new ways to disrespect a guy who has taken the hard route through boxing. There was never really no easy fights since Froch hit the big stage, besides Mack, which...

Groves trash talk
comment by decentman2, on 04-09-2014
I don't believe Groves has the street cred to publically dump the trash he's smacking. I think Froch (if he underestimated G at all) this time is going to toss the trash out with the little georgie boy! Froch has been to war with the best! He has the chin of chins (against Johnson, who is rock ch...

why would Froch be tormented? his only problem is the ref denied him a chance at a legit KO stoppage was wrong, but a real one was coming Froch is indeed a warrior; he's not finished until the final bell Groves deserves props for how well he did in the 1st fight but fighting well doesn't mat...
