George Groves may get his second chance at the current World Champion Carl Froch at Wembley Stadium says promoter Eddie Hearn, according to The Guardian.
Groves felt he was cheated out of his last fight with Carl Froch, after referee Howard Foster ended the fight in a controversial manner, and demanded a re-match from the 36-year-old champion.
The 25-year-old put on a great performance against the boxer from Nottingham, putting him down in the first round, just like the fighter from Hammersmith stated he would do.
The 'Battle of Britain' went on for nine rounds, with both fighters throwing great shots and giving the audience a brilliant fight. But in the ninth round, after the Champion had Groves against the ropes, Howard Foster jumped in to stop Froch hitting the Londoner, and called it to a halt, much to the dismay of everyone around the arena, including Groves.
But after the fight, Froch announced the official made the right call, with boos echoing around the Manchester arena, and cheers for the proud Groves, who is keen for another chance.
But now Eddie Hearn has come out to state Wembley Stadium could hold 'Battle of Britain' part 2 later on next year, around late May to early June.
Groves replied to say Wembley is a good ground to host the fight, but the boy from Hammersmith prefers Stamford Bridge, on home turf for the contender who supports Chelsea.
Hearn has backed the fight to be up there with one of the greats: "I think Groves vs. Froch II would be one of the biggest grossing outdoor events in this country."
But considering Groves is 100 per cent behind the idea of a re-match, Froch has remained quiet since calling to his agreement ringside after the fight, but Eddie Hearn believes Froch will take the invitation.
"I believe Carl will discuss how the fight would have gone on once the dust settles. And I think it is a fight Carl will take in the future."
