This is the biggest fight of my career and being a World champion is something that I dreamed of as a kid.
I'm well ranked across all the governing bodies but fighting Carl is the one that I wanted the most. He is a big name in the UK and a well-respected champion around the world, and I have a great team around me that can put together the right game plan to beat him and become a World champion and a major force in the super middleweight division.
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."
