Froch admits he wants Vegas bout before retirement

Carl Froch says he would like to fight in Las Vegas before he retires. Speaking after beating George Groves in front of a sell-out 80,000 crowd at Wembley last night, he said:

"If that fight there is all I do now in boxing, I will be a happy man! Now I'm not saying that's the end for me, but all I'm saying is, that will be hard to top. I don't know what Eddie can produce or offer me now that's going to be anything close to that, because that was just unbelievable...

...But there is one box that's left to tick and that's Las Vegas; all the greats before me have ticked that box and they've been there and I've not had my name up in lights in the fight capital of the world and it would be nice to do that before i do decide to bow out...

...So i need a long think, but I just want to get back and have a beautiful summer with my beautiful family!"
