Carl Froch vs. George Groves
Gabriel Rivas, Contributing Writer
Carl Froch has only two losses in his career: One against the true Super Middleweight champion Andre Ward and another against Micheal Kessler. Froch is battle-tested and holds two Super Middleweight world titles. George Groves is undefeated and has quick hands, but I see Froch taking this one mostly because he is more experienced and more powerful.

George Groves is like that schoolyard bully every child deals with in school. On Saturday night, Froch will be playing the “goofy, lanky kid who was picked on enough to almost cry, then the next day just kicked the bullies ass.” Yes, Groves is a the bigger man, but he is also the inexperienced, untested, and the less skilled of the two. It will be a pleasure to the eyes, when Froch deals him his first defeat, Lucian Bute style, on Saturday night.

Groves has been needling Carl Froch and doing everything he can to win this battle psycologically
before the two every step into the ring. I think an on edge and focused Carl Froch will be mentally tough
and with the support of a large and frenzied UK crowd he will squeak by with a Split decision.

Carl Froch is now 36 years old and his tendency to start slow could one day haunt him. Does George Groves have it in him to exploit that? The 25-year-old Groves has youth on his side, along with decent power. He lacks the championship pedigree that Froch has. I look for Froch to take the young challenger to deep waters with a mix of boxing and brawling to earn the victory.

I like Carl Froch and I think he’s on the brink of breaking the top 10 pound-for-pound list. An impressive win against Groves will go a long way in justifying his status. He’s a lot older and more experienced in the ring than George Groves, which may or may not be a good thing. Although Groves has a high KO percentage, he has not faced the level of competition that Froch has. Even at the age of 36, I think Froch’s athleticism and technique will be too much for Groves.
