Groves vs Froch

George Groves has admitted this weekend’s clash against Badou Jack might be the last chance he gets at a world title, whilst also insisting he no longer cares what Carl Froch thinks.

Groves will fight on Floyd Mayweather’s undercard this Saturday, and brushed off criticism from Froch, saying he’s 'just a retired fighter’.

"Carl is now a just a retired fighter," said Groves.

"He is just an opinion and I don't care about being knocked by the pundits."

"It's a must-win fight. I've had two attempts at a world title and fell short so I will leave nothing to chance. This time round maybe I won't get any more chances so I've got to make it count."

Radcliffe fights back

Meanwhile, Paula Radcliffe has hit out at claims she is a drugs cheat.

The 41-year-old categorically denied ever doping during her illustrious career despite being implicated in a Parliamentary hearing.

"I categorically deny that I have resorted to cheating in any form whatsoever at any time in my career, and am devastated that my name has even been linked to these wide-ranging accusations," she said.

"I have campaigned long and hard throughout my career for a clean sport. I have publicly condemned cheats and those who aid them. These accusations threaten to undermine all I have stood and competed for, as well as my hard earned reputation."

McIlroy reservations

In golf Rory McIlroy has admitted he doesn’t think Louis van Gaal is the right man to lead Manchester United.

The Irishman, obviously a firm United fan, said he liked the signings, but didn’t think Van Gaal was ideal.

"I think the new signings will be good in time, but I'm not convinced LVG is the right man to lead us," he said.

Rooney the record-breaker

Lastly, Wayne Rooney became England’s all-time leading scorer last night after hammering home a penalty against Switzerland.

The Manchester United striker’s effort put him one ahead of Sir Bobby Charlton with 50 international goals, though he’s played one game more.
