Photos: Froch Heated, Shoves Groves on Wembley Field
LONDON - George Groves and Carl Froch nearly went at it on the Wembley Stadium field, after some trash talking led to Froch shoving Groves. The two fighters came together to announce their anticipated rematch.
Froch retained his WBA and IBF super middleweight titles with a ninth-round stoppage against Groves in Manchester on Nov. 23. Groves launched an appeal, saying referee Howard Foster stopped the fight prematurely, and the IBF then ordered a rematch. Froch's belts will be at stake again on May 31.
Over 60,000 tickets have already been sold for the fight. The fight is expected to set a post-World War II attendance record for a boxing match in Britain.
