Froch - "I'm happy to honour Groves with a rematch"

Following a gruelling and controversial defense of his WBA/IBF Super Middleweight titles, Carl Froch has stated he would happily rematch George Groves.


Talking to Sky Sports the champion said:


"I’m happy to honour the crowd, fans and George Groves with a rematch if my trainer and promoter both agree,” he continued “I don’t swerve or duck anybody. If George wants a rematch and it makes sense, then of course we’ll get it on. It’s not my decision.”


In reference to Groves punching power he commented:


“I had a slow start and got caught clean on the jaw with a very good right hand,”


“I was supposed to flatten George Groves in round one but got flattened myself, and I’m man enough to admit it. I got off the floor, I turned the fight around and I defended my title in style. I challenge any man to take that right hand off George Groves, get up and fight the way I did.”
