Sauerland Plays Down Groves, Cleverly Sparring Beef

Sauerland was at the gym in good time and told Sky Sports the nation of Denmark would be behind their man on Saturday night. As for Kessler's controversial sparring with Brits George Groves and Nathan Cleverly, Sauerland played it down.

Froch has been very angry with his countrymen for helping Kessler with his training camp.

"It couldn't have gone any better, there are no excuses or ash clouds like there were last time for Carl, he's arrived in good time and he's in good spirits."
