Carl Froch says he is training like a challenger

English boxer Carl Froch has fired a warning at George Groves ahead of their upcoming rematch by claiming that he is training like a challenger and not as the champion as he vows not to underestimate the prowess of his opponent anymore.

Speaking with a Nottingham based news publication, the World Boxing Association or the WBA and the International Boxing Federation or IBF Middleweight champion has claimed that he is fully focused on destroying his arch nemesis during their battle next month at the fabled Wembley Stadium in London.
Over 80,000 tickets have already been sold for the fight, making it the biggest fight to take place in Britain since the Second World War and the pay per view sales for the fight are also expected to go through the roof as the final figures come in within a few days.

Carl Froch did admit that his performance during their first encounter where he claimed a controversial win following a ninth round stoppage was perhaps his worst performance inside a boxing ring but he has vowed to set things straight as he plans to give the fans their money’s worth by decimating Groves.

The Cobra said that he is in a very good place right now, adding that he hasn’t felt so good ahead of a fight since the fight against Lucian Bute and the difference this time is that he is training not as the champion but as a challenger and that will make things very, very difficult for Groves.

He admitted that there is motivation and a fire burning within him which wasn’t there the first time he fought Groves and according to Carl Froch, that will spur him on to go the extra mile as he tries to bury the feud with Groves once and for all.
