Londoner George Groves has refused to fight Carl Froch unless the British Boxing Board of Control allow a non-British crew of officials for their super-middleweight world title rematch later this year.
The 25-year-old claimed at a press conference today that the ninth-round stoppage by referee Howard Foster which saw Froch beat him in November was a "stonewall" robbery.
The pair will meet again on May 31 at Wembley.
Promoter Eddie Hearn backed Groves's call for neutral officials, saying the May rematch will be the "biggest fight in British boxing history".
The rematch sold 20,000 tickets in the first five minutes. Then the website crashed, promoter Eddie Hearn told ITV News' Rags Martel.
