Groves: I'll End Froch in Three, My Coach Says Five!

By Chris McKenna, courtesy of The Daily Star

GEORGE GROVES wants to knock Carl Froch out inside three rounds - even though his trainer is telling him to do it in five.

The 26-year-old Hammersmith fighter faces IBF and WBA super-middleweight champion Froch in their highly-anticipated rematch on Saturday week at Wembley in front of 80,000 fans.

Froch, 36, won the first fight with a ninth-round stoppage, but many believe referee Howard Foster called it off too early.

Groves had the three-time world champion down in the first in their explosive November meeting before hurting the defending champion with a number of big blows.

The Londoner is not sure how Froch will approach this fight, but he has promised not to let him off the hook again.

And he is so confident he has discussed how long the clash will last with his Irish trainer Paddy Fitzpatrick.

Groves said: "I think it will be over in three rounds but Paddy is talking about five - so I'll never go against the coach.

"It doesn't really matter how Carl wants to approach this fight because he will as always be forced to perform the way I force him to.

"So if he wants to start cautiously and hope to get me late, well that is a false belief, it's just something for him to hang on to.

"He will explode, without giving away too much, followed by an implosion and that could come very early.

"That could come in round one... round three. Once he walks on to shots he won't get up.

"Paddy Fitzgerald is saying five, I am saying three."

[QUOTE=yoz;14577756]Because he knocked him down inside a round last time? Looking forward to this. I reckon we're in for surprise, stylistically. Will Groves bring it to Froch or box on the back foot? Will Froch wait to counterpunch Groves or…

[QUOTE=Rizzyo;14576741]An All-Access or 24/7 for a fight of this magnitude would have been fitting. Really impressed by Groves in his last outing, however, i can't see past a Froch win.[/QUOTE] They have a behind the ropes show coming out which…

[QUOTE=hugh grant;14577728]Groves playing mind games again is he? Ive no doubt Groves thinks he can beat Froch, [B]but why does he think he can beat Froch in 3[/B] when he couldn't beat Degale in 3 and probably hasn't knocked many…
