Froch says he 'would've retired' if he suffered defeat

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."
