Groves: I Want Froch Rematch To Correct That Injustice

By Edward Chaykovsky

Super middleweight George Groves (19-1, 15KOs), has plenty of options to look forward to in 2014, but IBF/WBA "regular" champion Carl Froch is at the top of his list. Groves is still hungry to secure a rematch with Froch, looking to avenge what many felt was a premature stoppage in the ninth round of their November fight.

Groves told Sky Sports News: "I say I've got options and I do have options but I don't want these options, I want to fight Carl Froch, I want to be world champion, I want to right the wrong, the injustice of the last fight. The fact that there's such a demand for a rematch now, the fact that everyone knows that that's the only fight that can take place next."

"I went in there and had to get under his skin and even to the point where I told him the truth. So when the bell goes I told you I was going to take center ring, I told you I was going to start landing right hands, and then when it starts to happen he's going to start doubting himself.

"It was sickening, to me it felt like I not only had to fight this world champion, not only had to battle against everyone who thought I was going to get beaten, in the end I had to battle with the referee and officials as well."

no he wants the payday, tbf froch deserved his stoppage groves was turning into a punch bag in there but that comes with the territory of being a booth fighter.

Indeed you are right sir but I don't think anyone is debating wether Froch hurt Groves or not as he clearly did hurt him. However Groves clearly hurt Froch worse in the first round when he put him on his…
