DeGale Has Doubts About Groves' Stamina With Froch

WBC silver super middleweight champion James DeGale has doubts about George Groves' ability to withstand a tough pace for twelve rounds in his rematch with IBF/WBA 'regular' champion Carl Froch, which takes place this coming Saturday night before 80,000 fans at Wembley.

Groves started fast last November, when he dropped Froch in the first and then battered him in several of the follow rounds. But Groves visibly slowed down in the second half, as Froch took over, and suffered a controversial TKO defeat in the ninth. Even when Groves won a close decision over DeGale several years ago, he grew very tired in the second half of the contest.

"I've read somewhere that he said he threw too many shots in the first half of the fight. I don't think he does the twelve rounds good enough. Even in my fight when I boxed him, the last four or five rounds, he slowed down a lot. Just in the Froch fight, he slowed down and that's when Froch got on top," DeGale told Sky Sports.

DeGale is right. If Groves can´t KO Froch before the 8th rd he might as well throw in the towel.
