Quite looking forward to seeing how this Froch Groves rematch goes. Hope Froch destroys him to bed honest, but I'm sure he'll at least give him a hell of a fight.

I'm hoping for the opposite; Groves to remove Froch's head in the first round thank you.

I just can't see how anyone can like the guy. Bitching like he was definitely going to win that last fight. Begging for a rematch. He seems exactly the kind who would run a mile away from a rematch if he "stole" a win.

Awful trash talk as well.

The Robbie Savage of boxing.

I don't think there are many good trash talkers in boxing they all tend just to say generic bullsh*t to sound controversial and sell the fight.

I like both of them but that last fight only looked to be going one way when the ref stopped it and maybe Groves has lost that surprise element.

Froch is c*cky I never really liked the way he was always trying to call out Calzaghe before he'd earned the shot at a fight with him but since then he's proven himself at that level.

This fight is only happening because the IBF demanded it otherwise I doubt Froch would've given him another fight.

Considering all the hype around this one I'm fully expecting it to be a huge let down/anti climax.

I hope Froch wins, same with the first fight really, mostly because Groves come across to be an annoying little prick.

I think Froch will be more ready for this one and win easily, still looking forward to it mind, if it's half as good as the first fight it'll still be a decent watch.

I'm looking forward to Crolla's fight next month more, he's up against Murray in a 'Manc' derby. Decent card as well, Scott Quigg defends his title, and Anthony Joshua has a match too (no contests so far).

Edit: Didn't post after the first fight, but thought the ref made the right decision, it was one way traffic and it would've continued in the same way until eventually being stopped anyway.

It's a really tough call for referees though, I can see why anyone pro-Groves would be pissed off at it.

A week afterwards there was another fight where a ref let the fight continue after a knock down, and the same boxer got completely ko'd within 10 seconds of getting back up.

Can't wait for it. Froch underestimated Groves last time and it near cost him. I'd expect him to put Groves away this time. Froch's brother loves to get involved :lol:

The Dennis Wise of boxing.

A lot of them are bellends though to be fair. Mayweather really annoys me.

Mayweather looked beatable. I thought the 114-114 judge was correct.

Kahn looked solid. He'll fight one of the victors from last night imo. Still want to see him get in a ring with Brook though!

Broner is a moron. Can't stand him complete and utter idiot.

I love watching Kahn, very entertaining fighter, even if he is capable of being sparked out at any second. :lol:

He was quality last night. Keeping that pace up for 12 rounds is incredible tbh. If you see a brawl in a street, it only takes a few windmills until both parties are knackered. That was 36 mins of windmilling!

Froch v Groves tomorrow.

It's got to the point now where I'll be glad it's over so that it's not every where you look... the build up has been too much.

For anyone wanting a link tomorrow try: http://www.vipboxuk.co/sports/boxing.html (PC/laptop users)

Usually spot on for ppv stuff..

Groves is starting to take a beating here.. Froch controlling things in everyones eyes.. Apart from Amir Khan who just bizarrely said Groves is controlling the fight with his jab..

What a finish! Great right to end the fight.

Froch still a class below Andre Ward though. This is probably the pinnacle of his career.

Groves got exactly what he's been asking for for the last six months. A good ol' sparking.. what a hit. :ohmy:

Glad Froch won he's a bit of a t*t but he's a much better fighter.

Also had £10 on Froch in the 8th round so scooped a nice little win.

He's at least got some right to be a tit.. Blokes a champ. Groves should have that one day but he's just a bit too much mouth at the moment. Did do a good pr job though to be fair.

Nice one on the bet, what odds did you get for that?
