Hearn comments on possible Froch-Groves clash

Promoter Eddie Hearn says that a huge all-British super middleweight world title showdown between IBF and WBA champion Carl Froch and unbeaten Commonwealth champion George Groves could happen later this year. Reacting to news that the IBF have ordered Froch to face mandatory challenger Groves, Hearn, who promotes both fighters clarified the position on both boxers and the potential of a clash between the champ, who turns 36 today, and the 25 year old Londoner. “We are in talks regarding a potential blockbuster domestic fight later this year,” said Hearn. “Both fighters have plenty of options and although it’s a fight we originally envisaged for next summer, if it makes sense for both fighters, neither has a problem with making it happen.” An announcement will be made next week regarding future plans for both fighters.
