These two put on one of the greatest domestic bouts in recent memory and tonight, they were alongside each other for punditry at the O2 Arena
Is there a more regaled story than Carl Froch talking about knocking George Groves out in front of 80,000 people at Wembley?
No? Well, try the alternate version George Groves spun doing punditry at the O2 Arena tonight.
Fans were treated to a labouring Dereck Chisora win before Dave Allen finished Lucas Browne with a savage body blow in the main event in London.
However, doing punditry duties, Groves delivered an alternate version of the events at Wembley and, as a matter of face, he retired Froch!
“Did I ever tell you about the time I retired Carl Froch in front of 80,000 people? I let him throw a peach of a right hand. After that it was all downhill from there for him and he said, ‘I’m gonna have to pack it in.’”
Froch is often maligned for his takes on boxers he has either faced or could have, but not only was he a good dance partner for Groves in the ring, but he proved to be a great foil behind a microphone, too.
Furthermore, Froch had to stop himself saying Allen knocked out Groves instead of Browne, too!
Froch is the gift that keeps on giving, but Groves earned his money tonight, too.
