Carl Froch refuses to give George Groves a rematch

Carl Froch told the Daily Express on Thursday that George Groves is unlikely to get a rematch because “he behaves like an idiot all the time.”

Froch (32-2, 23 KOs) successfully defended the IBF and WBA super middleweight belts with a controversial ninth round TKO victory over Groves (19-1, 15 KOs) on November 23.

The 25-year-old Groves, whose awkward style gave the Nottingham native fits, floored Froch with a right jab in the first.

Although the champion recovered, Froch was consistently outdone by Groves’ speed, movement and deft footwork.

Bruised and swollen, “The Cobra” finally connected with a barrage of punches that left Groves wobbled and referee Howard Foster quickly halted the bout.

Froch, who has battled premier pugilists and possesses a granite chin and solid power in both hands, unsurprisingly agreed with Foster’s decision.

In actuality, despite being a legitimate bruiser, Froch hadn’t done enough over roughly 25 minutes to stop Groves.

“I stopped a voluntary challenger and I’m supposed to hand him a rematch? I’m very reluctant to hand Groves a payday, especially when he behaves like an idiot all the time,” said Froch, 36, also a past two-time WBC super middleweight king. “I don’t like him. He has absolutely no respect, no class, and is a spoiled kid.”

Considering the debatable conclusion, boxing fans deserve to see a sequel between Froch and Groves.

Unfortunately for George Groves and onlookers, Carl Froch more and more frequently “behaves like an idiot all the time.”
