Boxer Carl Froch from Nottingham will face fellow Englishman, George Groves on November 23 in Manchester.

'The Cobra' will put his WBA and IBF belts on the line against the unbeaten Londoner.

It will be Froch's first fight since adding the WBA title to his IBF crown when he beat Mikkel Kessler in May.

I am delighted to bring this event to Manchester on November 23.

This 'Battle of Britain' is a fascinating fight between a true legend of British boxing in Carl Froch and a superb young talent in George Groves; it is going to be some atmosphere, some occasion.
