4_stars_boxing_ranking_allthebestfightsReview: 2013-11-23, very exciting fight thanks to an aggressive start, one knockdown and some wild exchanges in which both fighters exchanged shot for shot showing a solid chin and a big heart: Carl Froch vs George Groves is one of the best boxing fights of the year and it gets four stars (but we hope for a rematch in 2014). Carl Froch (31-2-0, 22 KOs) entered as the No.2 super middleweight in the world while the undefeated George Groves (19-0-0, 15 KOs=79%) entered as the No.6 (actually the #1 in this weight division is Andre Ward). Froch vs Groves is valid for the WBA and IBF super middleweight titles; they also faced each other a second time on May 31, 2014 (=Froch vs Groves 2). Watch the video!

    good fight. did feel froch was about to start turning the fight around, but i still feel it was too a early stoppage. Groves was still throwing back (4-5 seconds before) and the referee coming in to stop the fight was not the right decision or at an appropriate time. A rematch is a must. Would of been one of THE fights of the year!

    • danielsan23

      early stoppage for sure! Groves started strong the last round and he had never went down. what the hell this referee had in his brain??!?!?!
      …anyway i didn’t expected Groves so strong! but i also don t understand why Froch, after taking some big punches and 1 knockdown, was boxing with no defense/guard…keep those f***cking hands up!!

          • Blakes

            Can’t blame Froch. He has no power to stop the fight.

  • Arjay Cee

    Very good fight! Groves had Froch’s number and should have fought smarter in the ninth, where he only had to stick and move with his lead on the cards. Stoppage was correct. Five solid shots on the temple had Groves stumbling away blindly. We don’t need another boxer in a coma this month.

  • Barry Newman

    Great win by Carl after a dodgy start,referees are there to make decisions,one is to prevent fighters taking unnecessary punishment,watch replay those who thought it was a premature stoppage and you will see Groves is being hit about 12 times without reply and no one will know what damage could have been done if left to continue,spot on decision,credit to Groves fought a good fight until he ran out of steam.

    • Razas

      I guess one could make an argument for the stoppage being slightly premature but the ref is close up to the boxers and can see things the TV viewer can’t. Groves didn’t land a single punch durng the last 30 seconds of the fight but was taking heavy shots so the benefit of the doubt must go to the referee making a correct decision.

    • Jordan Myerscough

      froch got smashed for 9 rounds end of, groves knocked froch down on the back foot. froch had groves on the back foot just cos the ropes were there they stopped it, they were saving froch from being hurt not groves, matchroom boxing won and youre a tw*t like eddie hearn

  • Pablo Rodriguez

    Groves got robbed period. WTF !!!!!!! And the scorecards indicate he was going to get robbed anyway, 76 to 75 LMFAO, Groves won all rounds including a knockdown so how the fuk do you have the fight 76 to 75 in two cards.

    • Barry Newman

      Didnt go to points dumbo..Froch knocked him out…

      • Sumpli

        Ur a nonse

      • Pablo Rodriguez

        Froch didnt do SH*T DUMB*SS, the ref knocked Groves out. His nuts are blocking your view

      • Jordan Myerscough

        are you dumb^^^^^ they gave the points score after the paid stoppage, and if thats what you call a knock out, froch was killed in the first round

    • dave55

      yous froch haters dont no sh*t bout boxing if it was a battle between to american fighters you would say its mafia or ss ilumnati new world ordor y is ev1 putn spin on it we new gg would start,fast and cf eat the kitchen sink spit it out and broke gg harte end off

  • DAVE

    One word… CORRUPTION!

  • Ctrl_Alt_Defeat

    another spectacular cobra win by Carl “The Conqueror” Froch = LEGEND
    next up is andre “roid” ward getting KtfO in UK 2014

    Stop crying , groves fanboys.. george is lucky the ref stopped it or he would have sustained some serious damage in the late rounds! no way he would have survived

    m not trying to take anything away from george, he’s a great fighter and he proved he is able to get in the ring with top contenders and have success..
    I see him having a better chance vs andre ward , as he doesnt possess the same punching power or punch resistance as carl does

    wouldnt recommend a rematch though, carl will be more serious next time..could end up killing the guy!

    • Tom

      Did you watch the same match you biscuit? Carl was battered more than my fish n chips you plonker. Everyone in that stadium and all the judges thought it was a unfair stoppage. He wasn’t even wobbled that bad and Carl couldn’t even admit he got pasted for 8 rounds ‘ He gave the champion a good fight’. If a good fight means him getting bullied to the point that you see his frustration and sulking in the ring.. then a good fight indeed.

      • dave55

        GG bandwagen u dnt no sh*t bout boxing

    • Pablo Rodriguez

      I like how you state that Groves proved he can get in the ring with top contenders….. LMFAO, I thought Froch was a World Champion ? Your a c**n kill yourself.

      • dave55

        hes a 4time world champ u chump

        • Ctrl_Alt_Defeat

          god damn right

  • Jordan Myerscough

    so 20,000 people were wrong were they, dont be so blind when corruption is punching you in the face

  • Ctrl_Alt_Defeat

    did you even watch the fight? Cobra got straight back up from the surprise knockdown he then walked through everything groves had to offer, CF eating numerous powerpunches to his nose and face but ultimately wore down GG and would have destroyed gassy groves if foster hadnt stepped in and saved him

    i feel bad for froch , if he had been allowed to finish groves this win wouldnt be tainted, and we wouldnt be hearing all this nonsence about groves being robbed and carl doing something wrong apart from getting caught with some lethal punches like he always does

    • dave55

      you wear watchen the same fight as me ur spot on and im a fan of boat men i won a nice 16t1bet for 9th round stopage y is every1 shocked i like gg but when cf start landen he fell apart or cf broke him he hit him whit all he had an than some in first 6 we all new gg would be good for 6 he can comes again bring on chavez jr or ggg who said he dont want froch but he will fight any1 else in that divistion

  • Javed Buttar

    man i am sick for groves….im definitely a fan of his now. speed, skills, style, cant wait to see this guy against other super middles

    • dave55

      it was always gona end up gg winning the best 6rds and froch stop him late on im a fan of boat men i hoped thayed never fight i think GG beats s.o.g,i new froch would brake him down y is no1 talking about rd1 first right cf landed buzzed gg and rd 3,5,6,8,9 not to shure about 7 but even the left when froch landed groves got on his bike he stod and traded once catchen cf whit 5r6punch combo and a littel slap from cf made him bk off nobody talken abouht how cf dug deep haters i won a 50euro bet at 16,to.1 for 9th round ko im not shocked

  • incognitoPlayer

    Groves was very problematic for Froch and the knock down punch he landed was reminiscent of Marquez’s KO of Pacquaio, Froch would of been out cold if it wasnt for his freakish punch resistance. His defence and reflexes are almost non existence. Groves threw the kitchen sink at Carl and didn’t break him, he just kept on coming. It was inevitable he was going to tire he looked exhausted. In round 8 he took some hard shots then another 9 or 10 thunderous hits in round 9, which clearly rocked him. If it wasnt stopped Froch would of more than likely finished the job there and then. If not Froch would of come on so strong the last 3 rounds, it could
    of been a Benn McClellan episode 2 if it wasn’t for the stoppage. With
    Groves possibly being on the receiving end of some sort of serious injury. Epic fight and a good decision albeit a little early.

  • Monty Simmons

    The fight proved at least tow things: (1) Groves beat Froch and would do so again in a rematch; and (2) Blatant corruption in boxing is not limited to the US.

  • Jawbreaker

    Once again boxing protects the house fighter. Not only did the ref stop the fight the second Groves got in trouble, but two of the three blind mice compounded the felony by having Froch only one point behind after being knocked down in the first and being outclassed over the first eight rounds. Boxing being boxing!

  • pic44

  • M.c.perera

    Early stoppage for sure but a fantastic fight. IMO the ref did a fantastic job up to the point of the stoppage…I liked how when there were fouls (and there WERE fouls…both fighters) he called time, stopped the action and gave a lecture. I don’t like it when the refs use 10-15 seconds of the round (with the clock running) to warn a fighter. But the stoppage came too quickly.
