Froch Dismisses Groves Rematch

Carl Froch has pretty much dismissed ever giving George Groves rematch.


The 36 year-old controversially stopped Groves in the ninth round after appearing to be comfortably ahead on all three judges cards before referee Howard Foster stepped in.


Speaking on Sky Sports, Ringside programme Froch said "Do I want to go over old ground? Not at the minute, no. I like to move forward in my career and the only old ground I like to go over again is for a defeat."


Froch will speak to promoter Eddie Hearn, trainer Robert McCracken and his family before deciding how he will go forward with the latter stages of his career.


"I defended my title against a mandatory. I beat an unbeaten fighter, a hungry, ambitious fighter who came to try and win the fight - and winning with a technical knockout in the ninth round is a great result," Froch said regarding his November 23 win over Groves.


Froch added: "If I decide to fight again I am going to make the correct decision based on where I want to go forward.


"I will speak to Eddie, my trainer Rob McCracken and my family and then I will make the decision based on what I feel is right for me - and everyone else."


Promoter Eddie Hearn revealed he has been in America to discusseg possible fights with world No.1 Andre Ward, unbeaten middleweight puncher Gennady Golovkin and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
