Groves: Froch Has Mental Demons, He is No Warrior!

By Edward Chaykovsky

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.

“It’s clear he doesn’t have a taste for me,” says Groves to The Standard. “I’m no different towards anyone in any fight. He’s just the same to me but it’s clear he has his own mental demons. He’s seeing a sports psychologist and I can tell that he’s worried. He won’t make eye contact but I know he’s thinking about me and, if he’s thinking about me, that’s fine.”

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

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…

[QUOTE=Scary;14407114]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…

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…

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…
