Groves' Trainer: Froch Would Have Kissed Hearn in French

Trainer Paddy Fitzpatrick, who guides the corner of George Groves, says IBF/WBA 'regular' super middleweight champion Carl Froch would have “kissed” promoter Eddie Hearn to get their anticipated rematch to land in his hometown of Nottingham. Instead, the fight is going to take place in Groves' backyard of Wembley Stadium, where 60,000 fans snapped up the tickets in an hour.

According to Fitzpatrick, Froch rejected the idea going back to the venue of the first fight, located in Manchester.

“He would have been over the moon [to have the fight in Nottingham],” Fitzpatrick told the Swindon Advertiser. “He would have kissed Eddie Hearn in French, he would have been that happy.

“He told Eddie Hearn he did not want to go back to Manchester because ‘they booed me out of the ring’. You’re joking me, so [Carl] you are not going to go back to Manchester, where the venue is 75,000, because the people booed you out of the ring?

“So, he [Carl] either thinks he is so grand, such an international superstar that he doesn’t deserve to be booed and how dare they, or he is just too insecure to be around people boooing him. He didn’t want to do Manchester, well he ended up in London, George’s home town."

[QUOTE=golden247]Simple fact of the matter is this, I've always tried to support British fighters whether I liked their style or not, I still can't knock Froch for his willingness to fight all comers however that doesn't mean he should be placed on such a high pedestal (as you clearly have put hi...

[QUOTE=S1MANC]Sorry you couldn't be more wrong lad, I've never been a Froch fan, I'll openly agree what turned me against him initially was his arrogance (see Taylor post fight interview and before that the continuous classless baiting of Calazghe) - but as for his skill set he's a b+ fighter at ...
