Groves says that Froch was saying how he was in excellent shape before their first but it wasn’t until afterwards when he struggled, then he came up with the excuses about not being at his best.

“Go back and watch this time before the first fight – He [Froch] said he was in perfect condition and was hitting all his targets,” Groves said to “Either he was lying then or he was lying now. Carl’s a liar. Simple as that. He’s used the excuse in the first fight saying he wasn’t ready.”

I must admit I do remember Froch blabbing about being in such good shape, and this and that about how he had a great training camp. Was Froch just flapping his gums to hear himself talk or was he telling the truth? I don’t know. I guess only Froch knows for sure. But he did look in excellent shape as usual.

Froch had an excuse after his loss to Andre Ward, saying “I lost the last fight with Andre Ward before I even stepped through the ropes, because mentally I wasn’t switched on. Physically I was drained. I was in Manhattan, sitting in New York a second time before Christmas.”

Froch didn’t like being away from home around Christmas time. The thing is it wasn’t near Christmas yet. Froch fought Ward on December 17th, and it’s not as if Froch still didn’t have 7 days to Christmas shop and hang out with his family.

Well, if Froch loses this time I think the excuses won’t connect with the fan. You can use excuses like that once but it doesn’t work when it’s in consecutive fights.
