'If It's Boxing, It's Vital'

It Is Wembley!

As had been intimated a few days ago, Wembley Stadium will host the hugely anticipated re-match between Carl Froch and George Groves.

The fight, on May 31st, is likely to break all attendance records for a fight in this country, eclipsing the 55,000 who watched Ricky Hatton take on Juan Lazcano at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium.

Wembley holds 90,000 and whilst we acknowledge that the fight will sell tickets like wild-fire, will Eddie Hearn be able to shift enough to fill the stadium?

But what do the two fighters think of the venue?

Carl Froch, the champion, had this to say,

'Fighting at Wembley will be mind blowing. I did not want to bring him to Nottingham and then people say 'you could only do it at home'. I am going down to his back yard so there are no excuses for him. “

'The time for talking has stopped. I'll be giving him more respect this time. I am sure he will try to get under my skin. He seems to think he is in for an easy night's work. He is in for a surprise.'


Whereas Groves remarked,

'The fight being at Wembley is brilliant news. I've never boxed anywhere close to the capacity of Wembley. To be crowned world champion in my home town of London will be an amazing feeling.'

I can’t wait, can you?
