More on Froch v Groves?

Yesterday, Carl Froch celebrated his 36th birthday and here at Vital Boxing we hope he had an enjoyable day.

The day before, the IBF decreed that Froch must meet George Groves in a mandatory defence of his super-middleweight crown.

Froch, discussing the subject matter, was of the opinion that he’d fight whoever he was ordered to fight, but will, despite Groves being made the mandatory challenger, the fight go ahead?

Whilst Froch was, seemingly, more than willing to share a ring with Groves, it appears that the promoter, Eddie Hearn, may decide to exercise another option, an option whereby Groves gets to challenge for a world-title but not against Froch.

Hearn, discussing the situation, commented on Sky Sports,

“Both fighters have plenty of options…if it makes sense for both fighters neither has a problem with making it happen. We are in talks regarding a potential blockbuster domestic fight later this year.”

Which would seem to indicate that Hearn is going ahead, full steam, to make a Froch v Groves fight happen, but, like we’ve already said, will it?

Information we’ve received suggests that there is a distinct possibility that Groves could be steered towards a clash with the WBO super-middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz, with Froch being lined -up for a third clash with the Danish pugilist, Mikkel Kessler

Now, in an age whereby television money rules the roost, there’s no doubt a Froch v Groves fight would be a money-spinner but could it match the earning potential of a third Froch v Kessler fight?

Or perhaps, just perhaps, Hearn is being ultra crafty by going down a route whereby a clash between Froch and Groves would be a unification fight, now that really would be a giant when it comes to finances accrued!
