Froch issues statement

Talk Boxing with fight fans at the KO Boxing Forum.

WBA and IBF super-middleweight champion Carl Froch has claimed that George Groves rejected a seven figure sum to face him in a rematch.

"There has been plenty of speculation over the last few weeks regarding my future. As it stands we are looking closely at two options: George Groves and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Yesterday (Thursday), we made a seven figure offer to George Groves for a second fight that would have seen him earn around double that of the first. Disappointingly, George rejected this offer so we are continuing our talks with Top Rank and HBO regarding Chavez Jr.

"I understand the demand for the Groves fight in the UK, but also the demand in the US for the Chavez fight. Talks are ongoing and no doubt some further news will break soon. I'm happy to fight anyone, as I have always done throughout my career," said Froch.
