Boxing: George Groves set to challenge Carl Froch for world titles in November
Friday 30 August 2013
Carl Froch's super-middleweight world title clash with fellow Englishman George Groves will take place in Manchester on 23 November.
The Nottingham veteran will put his WBA and IBF belts on the line against unbeaten Londoner Groves at the Phones 4U Arena. Froch has been dismissive of Groves's qualifications to challenge for the belts but Eddie Hearn, who promotes both men, announced the fight would happen after Groves became mandatory challenger for the IBF belt in July.
Amir Khan is set to challenge Devon Alexander for the IBF welterweight world title in either New York or Dubai on 7 December. The fight has been agreed in principle with only the location to be decided. Khan, 26, is eager to fight in the Middle East for the first time but it is thought Alexander is less keen.
