Groves -"He knows that he got more than a lottery ticket on Saturday night"

George Groves, the man who came so close to beating WBA/IBF Super Middleweight champion Carl Froch on Saturday has claimed that the Nottingham man will not face him in a rematch.


Talking to Sky Sports News the Hammersmith boxer said:


"Carl sat down at ringside for his post-fight interview and said ’let’s have a rematch’ but after watching it back, I think he said it just to get a cheer from the crowd.


"He probably doesn’t believe he wants a rematch. I deserve one after everything I put up with. It was an unfair and unjust decision and if Carl does decide to box on, his next fight should be a rematch against me.


"It would be the biggest fight for him out there so there’s no reason not to have it, apart from the fact he knows that he got more than a lottery ticket on Saturday night. I’ve got the beating of him."


A question was posed about the brief reconciliation backstage between him and former trainer, Adam Booth caught by the Sky camera’s. Groves responded:


"Adam was there with Andy Lee, who boxed on the undercard," he continued "Adam and I had a big falling out and it wasn’t easy to walk away from because there were contractual issues there.


"Ultimately, he was gutted for me as a friend that I had my dream unjustly taken away from me.


"But I’ve also had the best training camp possible with Paddy Fitzpatrick and the other guys I’ve worked with. Right now, I couldn’t ask for anything better than what those guys give me.


"There’s no way I would change what I had in the build-up to this fight.
