Froch v Groves II

  • RESPECT
    Froch and Groves stand side by side in the centre of the ring. They're exchanging words again but it looks like they aren't the sort of words they've been dishing out to eachother over the past few weeks!

  • FROCH REACTION [carl-froch]
    Let's hear from the main men, starting with a triumphant - but gracious - Carl Froch:
    I'm feeling unbelievably elated. This is the best moment of my boxing career. I've been involved in some magnificent fights with some top world champions but this is by far the biggest and best crowd I've boxed in front of, it's the biggest event I've ever been part of and I'm very, very proud. George Groves should also be very proud. It was neck-and-neck in here, let's be honest - there was nothing in it. One punch can be all you need and unfortunately for George, he was on the end of a very heavy right hand.

  • GROVES REACTION [george-groves]
    ...but he's up and able to talk to us at Sky Sports:
    I'm fine - it's boxing. Fair play to Carl, he caught me and I went down. I felt I was doing very well - I was in my groove, boxing well - but I've got to hold my hands up: he caught me with a shot. I'll come back bigger, better and stronger. I feel like I let myself down but congratulations to Carl.

  • GROVES WANTS MORE [george-groves]
    I felt I was ahead on the scorecards until that point and I'll be pushing hard to get my world title shot and maybe - if Carl's still boxing - that might be against Carl again. But now it's back to the drawing board...

  • FROCH ON TACTICS [carl-froch]
    I was calm and composed, as I said I would be. I was trying to establish my jab but George Groves is quicker than me. I've got a bit more range, a bit more reach but the main adjustment I made was I concentrated, I focused, I stuck to my boxing and I timed my right hand effectively. We executed the gameplan perfectly.

  • FROCH ON FUTURE [carl-froch]
    I will never top boxing at the national stadium in my own country, in front of 80,000 fans. It's unbelievable - big, big thanks to the British fans - but I would like to fight in Las Vegas. Opponent? Who knows - I'll leave that to Rob McCracken. He's guided my career and I do what he says because it always works.

  • WHAT A NIGHT!
    Wow, that CERTAINLY lived up to its billing!

    British boxing's biggest night didn't fail to deliver. From Anthony Joshua's first-round win to Jamie McDonnell's world title triumph, Kevin Mitchell's victory and James DeGale's big hit - and Froch's stunning defeat of George Groves, it's been a thriller.
