It is no secret that IBF/WBA super-middleweight champion Carl Froch wants to finish his career with a massive fight in ,Las Vegas but he still has unfinished business with fellow Briton George Groves and according to his promoter Eddie Hearn, Froch needs to make a decision about his next fight very soon.
Groves decked Froch in the opening round of their world title bout in Manchester last November before being stopped controversially in the ninth round. Groves desperately wants to entice Froch back into the ring but the champion harbours ambitions of fighting in the US.
Hearn, however, believes a rematch with Groves will be the most lucrative: “The Groves fight is the biggest financially, but I don’t think Carl feels he needs it,” Hearn told the Daily Mirror. “The public wants it but as far as he’s concerned he has beaten Groves.
“I’ll put the options on the table and the fighter generally chooses the fight which is the biggest financially. I think deep down, Carl will want to do a job on George Groves before he retires because he doesn’t like him at all. The animosity is genuine.
“We’re already talking to venues about doing it at the end of May before the World Cup, but if it drags on in the negotiation process, George will look at other options.”
