Carl Froch's promoter, Eddie Hearn, says Carl needs time off while he finds exciting options to try to convince Carl to fight again:
"We had a chat at his flat today and I said to him 'as sad as it is, this fight means so much, because this is what you're going to be remembered for'. He's heaped so much pressure on himself - like he said he's had George Groves in his head and in his ear for a year now...
...it's time for him to have a lovely summer break and for me to carve out any opportunities and to present them to Rob and Carl. If they float his boat then I'm sure he'll fight again. If they don't, who knows?!"
Carl Froch's coach from Birmingham, Rob McCracken, says they had worked on the knockout punch but also on left hook and body shots in the build-up to the fight.
Speaking after the biggest post-war fight in British boxing history, he also tipped Groves to bounce back:
"We practiced it a lot! We practised the left hook a lot and we practised his body shots too, which I think in fairness were a lot quicker that they were last time. He was pretty rapid when he got anywhere near George with the body punching and I think that slowed George down a little bit...
...But Carl Froch is a tremendous fighter, he's a prize fighter, he knows how to box, he knows how to fight and he knows how to win at the elite level and he's done that over the last six years consecutively and he went on to do that tonight...
...But, you know, Groves is a tremendous prospect and I'm sure he'll come again."
Car Froch says the right hook that 'finished the job' against George Groves, was the best punch he'd thrown in his life:
"How do you define a good punch and what it means? Well what that meant was, that in the whole George Groves saga and the history of the fight - the way people are going to look back on that in years to come - that was the right hand that finished the job...
... So, yeah, that was the best punch I have thrown in my life!"
Carl Froch says he would have retired and that his career would have been over if he had lost his Super-Middleweight clash with George Groves on Saturday night:
"I didn't want to go out of my career, or finish my career - because my career would've been over, I would've retired if I had lost tonight - I didn't want to go out like that and be remembered, in the biggest night in the history of British boxing post-war, as being the loser!
I take nothing away from George Groves but i came here tonight to win! I lived like a monk for three months and I listened to everything Rob McCracken said for three months. It's been hard to put my body through pain, but if you prepare correctly you get the results and that's what i did."
