Betting Site: Froch to face Groves this winter
By Andrew Scott Thursday, 25 July 2013 01:35
Betting sites are very excited, as Carl Froch will take on George Groves this winter in a bid to defend his IBF and WBA super middleweight titles.
The all-British battle which will be seen by pay per head services and many people with a betting shop will take place either late in November or early in December.
Betting sites saw that Froch clinched the WBA title when he beat Mikkel Kessler in a very exciting rematch in May at the O2 Arena, with an undefeated Groves capturing the empty WBA Inter-Continental title on the same bill following a fifth-round stoppage of Noe Gonzalez Alcoba.
Groves was named by the IBF as the mandatory challenger, and Froch, as well as many people with a betting shop, are thrilled that the fight will take place.
“I’m excited the first defence of both my belts is a big domestic clash,” said Froch. “I am a proper fighter and a proper champion and I will always face my mandatory challenger rather than vacate the title.
“I’ve known George for a while, I’ve sparred with him and watched him grow and now he’s my mandatory. I will be pouring everything into my preparation for the fight and George will face the very best of me.”
Groves added: “This is the biggest fight of my career and being a world champion is something that I dreamed of as a kid. I’m well ranked across all the governing bodies but fighting Carl is the one that I wanted the most.
“He is a big name in the UK and a well-respected champion around the world, and I have a great team around me that can put together the right game plan to beat him and become a world champion and a major force in the super middleweight division.”
Promoter Eddie Hearn said that fans can look forward to a very exciting night with a packed undercard when all of the details of the clash are released. Betting sites and pay per head services everywhere can’t wait, and are looking forward to plenty of action in the ring.
“I’m delighted to have got this fight made,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “It’s a great fight for British boxing with a real throwback feel to the big domestic fights in the super middleweight fights in the 90s.
