Carl Froch to deny George Groves a rematch
By: Greg Makin - express.co.uk
GEORGE GROVES’ frustration after his controversial defeat to Carl Froch looks set to intensify with the Nottingham man looking likely to refuse a rematch.
Instead, the double super-middleweight world champion is looking to the United States for his next defence, against either Andre Ward or Julio Cesar Chavez Jnr.
Froch said: “To finish in a massive fight would be better than going over old ground. It would be an honour to fight in Las Vegas because I’ve never done that under the big lights with all the glitz and the glamour on the main stage.
“I’m not motivated by money, I’m motivated by securing a legacy. Before I retire Andre Ward is on my hit list.
“Chavez is also a great fighter.
“I’ll have to speak to my promoter and trainer and see whatever makes the most sense.”
Londoner Groves was ahead on points when he was caught under a barrage of blows from Froch in the ninth round and the referee stepped in to stop the contest.
But he insisted: “If the rematch happens, I will stop him in six.”
