Groves: Froch is a 'well-respected world champion'

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.
