No rematch necessary.

As for Bute.....it's a fight I'd still like to see, but Bute has no legal recourse if Froch decides to go a different route.

Froch needs to call out GGG or fight the Pascal-Bute winner.

What if ref would've waved Bradley off against Provo in the first round?


BORKED


Would you be saying that Timmy was going to get stopped soon anyway?

I have zero interest in a ward rematch, fight wasnt close enough to warrant one, if he avoids the groves rematch he will tarnish his reputation in the only place he will be remembered and loved once hes gone, uk

In a way it looks better for Groves if Froch won't rematch.
Most people think the stoppage was too soon.
So if Froch won't rematch it is the same as him saying he is scared that Groves will beat him the second time out!!!

What happened to the Hopkins that was floated not long ago? I don't see the point in "going out on a win" if you're just fighting some bum. Challenge yourself right to the end. If I were Froch I probably wouldn't be looking to rematch Groves either, there are bigger names out there and beating him comprehensively (not saying he would) doesn't do a hell of a lot for his legacy.
I say he should go after Ward, Hopkins or Chavez.
It's up to Bute and Groves to FORCE a rematch with their performances, even if Groves stoppage was unfair.

All Bute has to do is say rematch time and Froch is already on a plane heading to Canada. As I said before, if Bute beats Pascal, he will want to rematch Froch. But Stevenson will be calling out the winner of Bute - Pascal as it is a local fight for all 3.

Ridiculous. I like Froch, but this kind of stuff pisses me off. He's repeatedly said "Groves blew it, he had his chance" ect meanwhile he thinks Ward not only owes him a rematch, but one in England?! GTFOH.

Froch's fans must be embarrassed after they claimed Ward was ducking a rematch

Froch will never refuse a Bute fight in MTL. Money talks!


Agreed but really whats the need for a Bute fight I mean that fight had a definitive conclusion..

I like Froch, but he owes Groves a rematch. There is no doubt about it.

I agree with you as well, but Bute might feel the urge for a rematch under his terms and territory, and it might end up being very different. This all depends of course. Froch might think it's an easy big payday and come relaxed, and Bute might be the hungry one and in a do or die position like Froch was when he fought him. It would remind me of Andrade vs Bute 2. Bute came out much stronger and handled business convincingly. We'll see.

TBH I think Sky will demand Eddie sort Carl out. Matchroom is nothing without Sky and irrespective how much Froch can make in Vegas, sky is more important to the Hearn family.

It gets made in the summer and Froch goes nite nite in round 6

Froch would not be able to take a loss against George Groves which if they fought again, would happen.

As for Ward rematch, why bother? Its not like Carl put in a decent showing the first time round. He would be outclassed again.

Chavez isn't gone fight froch, he will go the WBC route if any and Golovkin has business to take care of at 160. Froch doesnt have as many options as he thinks.
