Carl Froch vs. George Groves II: Rematch is official

Carl Froch v George Groves - IBF & WBA World Super Middleweight Title Fight

After reading several media outlets in the US saying that the rematch between Carl Froch and George Groves is on -- still I'm reluctant to believed, because in the UK there's no official announcement yet. Not until, No Holds Barred, a UK based boxing-head, posted in his Facebook timeline that the Froch vs. Groves is finally official.
It's official !!!!!

Carl Froch and George Groves have agreed to a rematch on 31 May, possibly in a football stadium.

Who do you think wins second time around and how?

The most anticipated boxing rematch in British boxing history is set on May 31, 2014 in a certain stadium, which is yet to be determined.

According to promoter Eddie Hearn said via Sky Sports News, "We are in discussions with about six or seven football stadiums in the country - including Old Trafford, Wembley, the Emirates, Twickenham, the Millennium Stadium and the City Ground.

In an interview also with Kugan Cassius of iFL TV Hearn also pointed out that every one is happy about the rematch and confirmed the date as May 31.


This rematch is very much anticipated by the many boxing fans especially the British boxing fans because of the controversy that surrounded the Froch-Groves first encounter at Phones 4u Arena (formerly M.E.N Arena), Manchester, Lancashire, United Kingdom on November 23.

In the first round of the bout, Froch was dropped hard to the canvas by a right hand from Groves. Although, Froch was able to continue he still look shaky in the second round. From that point onward Grove was controlling the fight. But in the ninth round referee Howard Foster stopped the fight in favor in favor of Froch, which only him could justify why.

Because of this controversial stoppage, the fans demanded for a rematch. Groves wanted a rematch. And here we go. Finally it's official and it's a big big fight in the UK.
