Carl Froch hopes to finish his highly successful career by headlining a massive boxing event in Las Vegas against either Andre Ward or Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, which indicates that any hope George Groves has of a rematch seems to have pretty much disappeared-for the time being at least.
The 36 year-old retained his IBF and WBA super middleweight titles against Groves with a highly controversial ninth round stoppage last weekend after Groves knocked Froch down in the opening round and looked to be on his way to a clear points win until referee Howard Foster controversially stepped.
A few days on Froch has had time to reflect on last weekend’s fight and how he would like to round out his career.
“To finish in a massive fight would be better than going over old ground,” Froch said. “It would be an honour to fight in Las Vegas because I’ve never done that under the big lights with all the glitz and the glamour on the main stage.
“I’m not motivated by money, I’m motivated by securing a legacy. Before I retire Andre Ward is on my hit list.”
And If Ward cannot be tempted to face Froch one more time, the double champion could target Chavez Jr
“Chavez is a great fighter,” Froch added. “I’ll have to speak to my promoter and trainer and see whatever makes the most sense.”
