After their highly controversial clash last November, George Groves and Carl Froch meet tonight at Wembley with the IBF and WBA super-middleweight titles on the line in what is being billed as the biggest fight in British boxing history.
Where to Watch:
Carl Froch v George Groves II is available via Sky Sports Box Office channel 743, or 752 for high definition. Live coverage of the fight is also available on BBC Radio 5 live from 9pm (BST). Walk-ons are scheduled for 9:45pm with an expected start time of 10pm.
When Howard Foster decided to end the first fight in the ninth round on a November evening in Manchester, you knew immediately it wouldn't be the final word on Carl Froch v George Groves. Having floored the 37-year-old in the opening round Groves, depending on who you ask, was well placed to displace Froch (32-2) at the summit of British boxing.
The decision to stop the fight was widely condemned by boxing's hardcore community and engrossed casuals alike. Groves' relentless push for a rematch which was to be ordered by the IBF months later has led us to tonight, where in front of 80,000 fans their fates will be decided.
26-year-old Groves has promised the exhilarating start he provided last year, vowing to take Froch's IBF and WBA titles with a left hook. The champion, who has remained unmoved in the face of the young pretender's bravado, insists the boxing world saw him at his worst last time out, suggesting that even at the latter stages of his career he is still learning from his mistakes.
But in what has been proclaimed the biggest domestic clash of all time, there is no room for any more mistakes from either man.
What They've Said:
Carl Froch: "If you want a prediction, I can't see George Groves going the distance with me. Not purely because of his lack of fitness and the question marks of whether he's tough enough, although he proved he wasn't fit or tough enough in his last fight because he had a great start and couldn't finish the job.
"I couldn't have been any worse. I won't make excuses. He hit me with a great shot in round one and it was hard work. It's hard to get up and get your mind back on it and your body back on it and get back in the driving seat."
George Groves: "Anyone who's watched me and watched the open workouts knows that we've been working on the left hooks, that the left hook will work and the left hook will finish Carl Froch."
"If you think it's a bluff, you should go back and watch the first fight. If I say something, people should know that I'm fully capable. If you watch Carl Froch's fights then you'll know that he's susceptible to that shot. He's not the sort of fighter that can adapt in 48 hours.
"I'm very excited to be here. I think for me we've worked towards perfection in camp but this couldn't be more perfect. I'm going to become world champion in London in front of so many people."
