Carl Froch has stunned many fans recently by stating that he is looking to end his career in Las Vegas for his last fight, ending speculation of a rematch with George Groves, according to the Daily Express.
After all the rumours linking George Groves with a rematch against Froch, it looks as though this encounter is becoming more a dream than a reality for the Chelsea fan.
The fight, back in November was hosted at the Manchester Arena, where Groves put in a great display against Froch, keeping to his word and knocking him down in the first round, along with showing a courageous fight for eight rounds.
However, it was in the eighth round where the controversy took place, as the referee ended the fight after the Nottingham-born boxer had a sequence of hits thrown at Londoner's head. But to the dismay of the fans, and the shock of Groves and his team, it was the wrong decision.
The Hammersmith born boxer stated after the fight he wanted his rematch with the 36-year-old later in the year, as 'Battle of Britain II' was looking like a possibility with Eddie Hearn stating where the fight would be held and when the finalised date would be around.
Even Amir Khan came out to state Froch should give Groves a rematch, because the 25-year-old deserves it.
With this information though, thoughts have been heard from the likes of Groves, Hearn and Khan, but not the champion Froch, and recently, he put the chances of this fight happening to a halt by stating he wants to end his career with a big fight.
"To finish on a massive fight would be better than going over old ground."
Froch also made a hint to how he is aiming for his dream fight in Las Vegas. "It would be an honour to fight in Las Vegas because I've never done that under the big lights with all the glitz and glamour of the main stage."
In the nicknamed "Cobra's" career, the reigning champion has had 34 fights, winning 32, with 23 of those being knockouts.
