Where do you go next after winning in front of 80,000 people in your national stadium and settling one of the biggest grudge matches in boxing? This is the decision facing Carl Froch following his eighth-round knockout of George Groves.
Another domestic grudge match could be next for the Cobra in the form of James DeGale. The Olympic gold medallist has only boxed once under the Matchroom banner and is now mandated to fight for a world title.
The champion, however, has continually spoken about his desire to box in the fight capital of the world - Las Vegas.
This, therefore, would make a bout with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr as the early favourite.
A bout under the bright lights of Las Vegas could bring the curtain down on an illustrious career for Froch.
A third option could be to fulfil another ambition and box in front of a sold out City Ground, as a final homecoming to rival of that Ricky Hatton’s return to Manchester.
This could be made possible with a bout against Sakio Bika, to try and win back the WBC belt that he lost in the final of the Super Six tournament to Andre Ward.
With one defeat avenged against the Viking Warrior Mikkel Kessler, Froch could attempt to avenge his only other loss against Ward.
A bout with the American, however, is not as financially lucrative with the American's style not appealing to many.
Both Kessler and Froch have wins against each other in their home countries, so a final deciding bout in a neutral venue could be a possible venture.
Froch’s former adversary Groves will now have to work his way back up the rankings and is now behind arch-rival DeGale.
Following the only two losses of his professional career, the Hammersmith fighter has signed a new promotional deal with the ambitious German promoters Sauerland.
