Paddy Fitzpatrick, trainer of George Groves, is prepared for the possibility of IBF/WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch losing his marbles in the planned rematch for May 31.

He says Froch might loses his sense after dealing with weeks of high emotional drama in the lead-up to the fight, while reflecting on last year's first meeting where Groves dropped him hard and hurt him numerous times. The boxing public pushed for a rematch, with many believing their first fight was controversially stopped as Froch tried to finish Groves off in the ninth round.

“I expect Carl to be an more dangerous fighter than he was last time,” Fitzpatrick told Newsletter. “But I’ll tell you the type of Carl Froch I expect - Mike Tyson in the rematch with Evander Holyfield. I expect him to implode because he is in a fight he doesn’t want.

“He will want to change something but what are you going to do? Do you want to start quicker when you normally don’t? Now you are out of character, already are you going to wait for the championship rounds, you’d better not because George is starting quicker than he did last time, so what you going to do?

“The closer it gets, oh Jesus, he’ll be feeling all those emotions and trying to push those emotions out. He finished that fight knowing that he had been hurt repeatedly, out-fought and out-boxed repeatedly. He’s going to have a lot of emotions to deal with in this next fight.”

[QUOTE=yoz]Groves wasn't hurt, remember? :lol1: He was playing possum, then proceeded to protest by flinging himself into the ropes.[/QUOTE] Froch only landed "arm punches" and "half-shots" :lol1:

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK]Froch won because he got to Groves and because Groves got careless, tired and ragged. Froch deserves far more credit than you're giving him.[/QUOTE] Groves wasn't hurt, remember? :lol1: He was playing possum, then proceeded to protest by flinging himself into the ropes.

[QUOTE=LacedUp] "halfwits" - he did only win because he was gifted a stoppage. From start to finish in that fight Groves put a beating on Froch. [/QUOTE] Froch won because he got to Groves and because Groves got careless, tired and ragged. Froch deserves far more credit than you're giving...

[QUOTE=yoz]Oh, for sure. Still, the general consensus seems to be that Froch was on his way to a stoppage. Groves was tiring and rocked bad - there was over a minute left in the round, too.[/QUOTE] Sure, I mean, I don't think Groves looked like he was on his way out but Froch looked better and...
