How do we see this one going this weekend?

Personally thinking Groves will see it through this time, either a late round stoppage or a majority points decision.

I still have Froch winning, but I'm nowhere near as confident of that prediction as I was in the first fight.

Froch will be better prepared but so will Groves.

I find it hard to call

What a finishing punch!!!....... You can't help but admire Froch's determination, he isn't the greatest boxer, but he always seems able to rise to the occasion and find something when its needed, in order to win a fight.

Personally, I had it even going into the eighth, but Groves has no complaints this time - That was one of the most destructive one punch KO's in World title history, up there with Julian Jackson's KO of Herol 'Bomber' Graham, which was the most sensational I remember.






And so you aim towards the sky,
And you'll rise high today,
Fly away, Far away,
Far from pain....

One of the great shots. You might find one of those once, maybe twice, in a career.

Bruno found one once, against Tyson. Of course, Iron Mike just sucked it up. Bruno was toast in that instant.

Not surprised at the result, but was expecting Groves to throw some bigger punches considering how much he talked about finishing in 3 rounds!

Not sure where he goes from here now, as that is 2 straight world title fights and 2 straight defeats, and this one brought back the "chinny" reputation that was talked about before the first fight.

Personally, I think he will be one of those fighters who finds himself just short of World Title level, like a Herol Graham or Michael Watson - He probably blew his best chance in the first fight with Froch. Its pretty obvious that Froch was well short of his best in that fight, yet Groves still managed to fall short... Yes, he was a little unlucky with the stoppage, but he should never have give Froch that chance, because he should have stopped Froch several rounds before, but wasn't able to complete the job.
