Groves: If Froch Loses To Me, Too Much For His Pride

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

GEORGE GROVES is hunting down Carl Froch after moving a step closer to a world title shot at the 02 Arena.

Groves, 25, stopped Uruguayan Noe Gonzalez with a straight right hand 51 seconds into the fifth round of their super-middleweight clash which topped the undercard for Froch’s battle with Mikkel Kessler.

The Londoner said: “Of course I want to fight Carl.

“A lot of people’s eyes might roll when I say that, but the truth is, I’m there.

“Carl is in the twilight of his career and keeps banging on about his legacy.

“But if he retires now he won’t have a legacy worth remembering like Ricky Hatton or Joe Calzaghe.

“He needs a few more good fights but instead he is targeting opponents who there is no disrespect in losing to, people like Andre Ward who he has already lost to. If he loses to a young fighter like me with 19 straight wins, his pride might take too much of a knock.”

[QUOTE=Clegg;13420378]Yeah, such incredibly stupid logic, even by pro boxer standards. I guess Booth wants Groves to follow the Haye approach of talking himself into fights rather than earning them.[/QUOTE] Correct me if I'm wrong but the article says he's ranked…

Make the fight and we'll see how talkative Groves is after he gets stopped on the ropes inside 4.

Stylistically and financially, a Ward rematch is the wrong move for Carl. A third fight with Kessler, or perhaps even fighting Stiegliz for the other 168 title belt would be big.

Fanta pubes needs to get in line and earn his shot.
