Hearn: Groves Could Be Looking at Froch in a Few Fights

By Luke Furman

Promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom says top rated super middleweight contender George Groves (19-0, 15KOs) might be looking at a showdown with WBA/IBF champion Carl Froch in a few fights.  Groves, ranked as high as number one by the WBO, knocked out Noe Gonzalez in the fifth round on the Carl Froch-Mikkel Kessler undercard on Saturday night at the O2 Arena in London. Froch got revenge with a decision win over Kessler.

After his fight was over, Groves called for a match with Froch. Both boxers are promoted by Hearn. Froch seems to be focused on getting a rematch with Andre Ward, who defeated the Nottingham boxer in 2011. There is some tension between Groves and Froch, because Groves joined Kessler in his camp as a sparring partner.

"George Groves is coming up on the blind side and in a couple of fights he might be looking at someone like Carl Froch," Hearn said.

In a few fights Froch might just be fading by then. But I wouldn't mind him passing the torch to Groves. [SIZE="1"][I]Posted from Boxingscene.com App for Android[/I][/SIZE]
