Groves: I'd Beat The Best Froch Every Day of The Week

George Groves has lashed out and called IBF/WBA "regular" champion Carl Froch 'a liar' at the weigh-in for Saturday's super-middleweight rematch at Wembley. The Londoner was well received by a raucous crowd at a packed Wembley Arena before 36-year-old Froch entered to a more mixed reception - and despite grinning in silence throughout the final stare-off, Groves renewed the verbal hostilities during his subsequent interview.

Groves poured scorn on the 'Cobra's' claims that he is fitter than ever, pointing to how his opponent said the same six months ago.

"I'd beat Carl every night of the week and it doesn't better if it's the best Carl Froch or the worst Carl Froch," he told Sky Sports News. "Go back and watch this time before the first fight - he said he was in perfect condition and was hitting all his targets. Either he was lying then or he was lying now. Carl's a liar. Simple as that.

"He's used the excuse in the first fight saying he wasn't ready. If he's ready this time, it doesn't make a difference. We can go all night long - this fight is going to get worse and worse for him. I don't think he's going to get past three rounds. Paddy says five, maybe six. If we need to go 12, we can. The belt should be mine. Carl's had them on loan for six months. They're in London now and I'm not letting them leave."

Only one problem, George - Froch beat you last time. So much delusion about the guy. Froch is much fitter than him and has tonnes more heart than him, that's what got him through the fight. Laughable saying the titles…

Froch is going to beat Groves down. Kid was doing a number on Froch connecting with almost everything and still almost got KO'd if the ref didn't stop it. Froch wins.
