It is being billed as Unfinished Business’ and the rematch between Carl Froch and George Groves will take centre stage in front of 80,000 people at Wembley Stadium tomorrow evening.
When given little chance back in November when they first met, George Groves did just about everything he said he would, apart from winning, when coming close to shocking Froch back in a bout that ended somewhat controversially and yesterday the underdog - who is 11/8 to win tomorrow night - was again talking up his chances.
Groves claimed in yesterday’s press conference that he would take Carl Froch’s IBF and WBA super-middleweight titles with a left-hook and he suggested it would be a “one-sided fight from the very start” tomorrow night. Despite the previous clash between the two being stopped, Groves insists he can go 12-rounds if required and with Froch’s resolve it looks as if he’ll have to. Boylesports go 7/2 for George Groves to win on points. Froch is 8/13 to win the fight with Groves priced up at 11/8 and it’s 28/1 that they can’t be separated after 12-rounds.
Froch is 10 years his senior at 36 and while he may be coming to the latter stages of his career, he claims to have never been in better shape going into a fight and that is a point he is striving to prove after being deemed a somewhat fortuitous winner of their first meeting in which Groves won the first six rounds.
The Groves camp also claim that their man is in better shape this time around than he was when nearly causing a big surprise last year and in what is one of the biggest fights in world boxing for some time, it continues to divide opinion.
However, Groves is picked to come out on top despite Froch’s experience and while it will probably go all the way and be decided on points, take a chance at 40/1 that the Londoner Groves wins the fight in round 10.
