The early odds for Carl Froch's next fight with George Groves has the Nottingham fighter as the heavy favourite:
- Carl Froch - 1/6
- Draw - 33/1
- George Groves - 7/2
Nottingham's Carl Froch has spoken of his excitement at defending both world super-middleweight belts for the first time against George Groves.
Speaking on Sky Sports News Froch said:
"To defend my titles in England and against a British fighter in George Groves, it's exciting not just for me but for the fans as well.
I've boxed for world titles in my last 10 fights, but it's always been against international fighters. So to fight finally against someone else who's English, it's a real treat for fans.
It's a domestic [world title] fight and it rarely happens in boxing."
Midland super middleweight champion Carl Froch will defend his IBF and WBA World titles against fellow Brit George Groves, it has been announced.
The clash will take place in late November or early December.
Froch triumphed against Mikkel Kessler at the O2 Arena in May, adding the WBA stamp to his IBF belt, while the unbeaten Groves claimed the WBA Inter-Continental title after taking on Noe Gonzalez Alcoba.
He said he was looking forward to defending both titles against one of his own countrymen.
