Default Froch V Groves 2 , venue

will it's finally been agreed.......... but where would we like to see it ? will be surprised if its London as that = home advantage for George,
also to get the 70-80 k crowd Eddie is predicting it is going to need a quality undercard.

Why? Not that it will, but if it did get 70 to 80,000 people, it will be done solely on the name of Froch and Groves. Look at all the big 25,000+ Stadium shows in this Country in the last 30 years, I cannot think of one that was sold on anything other than the Main Event.

When are England playing their World Cup warm ups? That might rule out not just Wembley, but any show in London...

according to bbc website ... 31st may ... premiership rugby final at Twickenham so I reckon we can rule that venue out.

excellent venue but you would get an extra 20,000 in old Trafford. that could mean another 1.5 - 2m in revenue

Manchester would be the most neutral venue I feel. Groves winning at the City Ground would be fun for the Police!

May is a very busy month. Looks like Wembley and Twickenham are out the picture as said above

Man City would be a great bet, they did about 60,000 for Hatton Lazcano and was a big success. I think that was a sell out though and im sure Hearn will want to break records with attendance

They could always push the fight a week forward or later to accomodate Wembley

Stamford Bridge would be good, since Groves is a big chelsea fan
