Photos: Hearn at Wembley To Announce Froch-Groves II

Promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport has labelled Wembley Stadium as the "ultimate" venue for Carl Froch's rematch against George Groves after it was announced the May 31 bout will take place at the national stadium. Last fall Groves dropped Froch in the first round and then battered him for the first half of the fight. Froch staged a late rally to gain a controversial stoppage in the ninth round, when referee Howard Foster jumped in too early to wave off the fight as Froch was attempting to finish Groves off. The IBF then ordered an immediate rematch.
