By Scott Gilfoid: IBF/WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch (32-2, 23 KO’s) has yet to step inside the ring with George Groves (19-1, 15 KO’s) for their second fight and already Froch is talking about maybe getting in the ring with him for a third fight. Froch can see himself doing such a think if he loses his two straps on Saturday night. With the British boxing public very interested in seeing these two guys go at it, Froch says a trilogy fight is possible.
“Who knows? I expect to stop Groves but what if I had lost a fantastic fight? Maybe that would mean trilogy fight in front of another sell-out crowd at the National Stadium,” Froch said via the Dailymail.co.uk.
Oh boy, a third fight between Froch and Groves. This is what I was afraid of. How many times do these guys have to go at it before someone else gets a chance to beat them? Heck, I wouldn’t mind seeing James DeGale get a chance to fight the winner instead of seeing these guys go into an immediate rematch, but not really all that interested in seeing DeGale fight either.
The guy that the Froch-Groves winner should be fighting is Andre Ward, because is the best fighter in the 168 lb. division at this time. It’s fine to have a domestic level fight or two every once in a while, but these can’t sit back and make and entire career out of their fights together. The winner of the Groves vs. Froch fight should do the right thing and travel to Oakland, California to fight WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward in his kingdom. I think that’s the right thing for them to do.
Froch went on to say that he’s interested in fighting Ward in Vegas if he whips Groves again, saying “I do have this dream of fighting in Vegas, where every big champion has fought.”
Unfortunately, Froch said it was just a dream and he didn’t say he would actually do it by calling Ward up and telling him to meet him in the center of the ring in Vegas. It would be so great if Froch did do that, because at least he’s be getting back in the ring with his conqueror instead of going in the opposite direction and taking on the easier marks.
