Boxing: Carl Froch eager to stop the talking and start the fighting
Monday 26 May 2014
Carl Froch cannot wait to get his hands on George Groves again as the WBA and IBF super-middleweight champion cut a moody figure ahead of their rematch on Monday.
The Nottingham man is tired of the hype surrounding the fight at Wembley on Saturday which has broken records as 80,000 people will watch the rematch six months on from Froch’s controversial win in Manchester.
“I don’t enjoy this,” he said. “I enjoy it in the ring but I don’t enjoy the build-up. Once that bell rings, I’m doing the business. But if you’re asking me whether I enjoy the build-up, then no. It is going to be a fantastic fight because we’ve got a big crowd behind us and everybody seems to be watching around the world.
“I know what to expect now,” he added. “I know what tactics Groves brings. He tries to wind his opponent up. He was successful first time but I don’t listen now. It’s a chance to show everybody how good I am. All I need to do is concentrate.”
